I'm not sure why no one had ever bothered to measure a Subway foot long sandwich before, but once Matt Corby of Perth, Australia did it this week and discovered his sandwich came up an inch short, the entire world has been out measuring Subway sandwiches and so far there have been very few reports that anyone has found an actual foot long sub. On average it looks as if 60-70% of all foot long subs made are about one inch less than they should be. Combine that with a 25% reduction in the amount of meat each Subway shop is putting on the sandwich on a year over year basis, and an increase in prices and you have a recipe for a scandal. I have great experience in not measuring up but it usually deals with a part of my anatomy not named stomach. The company says that the stores are to blame for not baking the bread at the right temperatures. All the stores? The company says the bread shrinks during baking. So, if we want an actual foot long sandwich we have to eat the bread raw?
