NaBloPoMo: Day 28 – Subway Sandwiches

Well it has come to my attention that I may never be able to live in the United States. Let me explain:

Peter and I both love Subway Sandwiches. They are healthy and delicious and make for a quick tasty meal. The only reason I love it so much is for the Sub Sauce. Sub sauce is like an Italian/Greek dressing, but way better. I have never been able to buy a dressing that tastes like it. Anyway, it is a Subway staple and it makes the sub absolutely perfect. Honestly, I would never go to Subway if not for the sub sauce. I would just make a sandwich at home.

Now, I travel to the states about 3-5 times a year, whether it be for vacation or for shopping trips, and usually I try to eat at restaurants that we don’t have up here in Canada. Why have something that you can get at home, right?! However, on our first night in Florida, we were really tired from the flight and we didn’t really feel like going to a sit down restaurant. Peter wasn’t feeling well, so I thought maybe a nice Subway sandwich would do the trick.

We walked in and looked at the menu to see if there were any items that we don’t have at our Subways here. I noticed they had avocado and I was super excited to get that on my sub. I didn’t want to get the same sub I get all the time, so I tried a buffalo chicken sub. Turned out they didn’t have avocado, so I wasn’t able to get that. When it came time to put sauce on the sandwich, I looked at the list of sauces. I didn’t see sub sauce listed. I tried not to freak out and I asked the employee if they had sub sauce. He said no, and then asked me what part of Canada I was from. WHAT? That sentence said it all. There is only sub sauce in Canada. I was so shocked.

My sandwich was okay, but not nearly as good as my usual subway experience. I still can’t believe Canada has something the States doesn’t have. Now that’s rare. It’s usually the other way around!!

So now I will always have to stay in Canada just so that I can have sub sauce on my Subway sandwich. Haha. I also recommend to all my American friends that they come up to Canada and have a sub with our delicious sauce on it. You won’t regret it!!

    Actually.. I don’t think Ontario has sub sauce. My friend told me that.. Crazy stuff but I know now how you feel.
