Sandwiches in Review: Stouffer’s Toasted Subs

July 16, 2010

Stouffer’s recently began a line of microwaveable sub sandwiches.  They have a couple different varieties, and are actually advertising them comparatively heavily, with TV spots and other multimedia ads.  I picked their Meatball Marinara sub, which appears to be the flagship sandwich of the line.

Not actual size.

The major problem with this sub is that it’s packaged frozen.  Being frozen works for things like flatbread sandwiches or hot pockets, but a sub just has too much bread.  The ads promise that it “crisps in the microwave”, but it really just gets soggy.  The rest of the ingredients are fine.  The meatballs are a bit on the small side, but the peppers are actually pretty good for being frozen.    Like most boxed sandwiches, it’s not a meal in and of itself, but it could work as a snack.  All in all, I wouldn’t particularly recommend this sandwich.  If you want a microwaveable sandwich, go with something with more substance and less bread.

Sorry for the lack of content this week, check back next week for more sandwich news and reviews!!

    I found that they crisp quite nicely in the microwave. I didn’t find either of the sandwiches I tried (Beef and Cheese and Italian) to be soggy when I ate them. They reminded me of Domino’s sandwiches, but much cheaper.
