Subway’s got a new shtick. Each month Subway is featuring a new sandwich. May was the Orchard Chicken Salad Sandwich, this month it’s the Italian B.M.T, and apparently last month was the Chipotle Chicken and Cheese. For how much marketing went into the Turkey and Bacon Avocado Sandwich, though, if you forgot all about that other…what was it called again? Well, it’s okay.
The heavily promoted sandwich was for the company’s promotional tie-in with the much anticipated release of Green Lantern, starring Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively. The marketing meetings must have been painful, ‘It’s for Green Lantern. Avocados are green. It works.’ [(Forget that Bok Choy, Green Peppers, Lettuce, Spinach (nix that, already taken), Broccoli, Brussel Sprouts, Cucumbers, Green Beans, Celery, are, um, yes, all green.]
If you couldn’t actually eat the thing, cause, you know, that whole, yummy avocado on a bed of dead animal thing…Tofurky and Smart Deli can help you out with that.
