Sandwiches in Review: Subway’s Meatball Pepperoni
March 3, 2011
Sandwich giant Subway is adding a new sub each month to their fabled $5 Footlong line. The new sub is available for $5 for a month, and then changed out for a different option, ensuring I’ll have work to do for a while. The first offering is the Meatball Pepperoni, a variation on Subway’s popular Meatball Marinara.
The Meatball Pepperoni is a pretty good sandwich, as Subway sandwiches go. I’ve always found the cheese options at Subway to be a little lacking, which is strange given how much effort they put into giving you choices elsewhere. For a meatball sub, I’d go with a mozzarella, or maybe a parmesan, but neither of these cheeses are offered. I settled on Monterey cheddar, since it’s not too strong and it’s shredded. The pepperoni was decent, but not hugely noticeable. There’s not a lot to set this apart from the regular Meatball Marinara sub, which is also a $5 Footlong. However, if pepperoni is really your thing, then I guess I’d recommend it. Personally, I’d much rather have a limited time Meatball sub with something like mozzarella cheese or mushrooms.
