Subway customers disappointed with festive sandwich changes to Christmas 2019 menu

Does this cheesy garlic bread steak sarnie suggest Christmas to you?

Sandwich chain Subway has been slammed by dissatisfied potential customers following the launch of its Christmas menu.

The seasonal range includes the Ultimate Cheesy Garlic Bread Steak Sub, mince pie cookies and gingerbread coffee - but many social media users feel the offerings are not all that festive.

Many commenters felt the Steak Sub in particular was a let down.

The toasted sarnie with roasted garlic and parsley butter is packed with strips of steak, melted cheese, peppers and onions.

One disappointed person tweeted: "Please don't tell me this is replacing your usual festive sub 🤦‍♂️."

And another, laying out what they expected from a Christmas-themed fast food snack, enquired: "When is the ACTUAL Christmas sub coming to stores? Turkey, cranberry, stuffing, gravy."

Bring out a proper Christmas sandwich FFS.

But those responding on behalf of Subway from the company’s Twitter account defended the garlic bread item, pointing out that celebrations should be flexible - like Subway’s motto.

"Bring out a proper Christmas sandwich FFS," demanded one user.

And there are some fans looking forward to the winter treat, with one user drooling: "Omg omg omg I really want that."

Last week, rival fast food outlet McDonald's launched the Snickerdoodle McFlurry, their first seasonal variation on the popular dessert since 2012.
