Just before Christmas I got a tip from a reader of The Savvy Celiac that the gluten free Subway sandwiches were being pulled in January. If you are lucky enough to live in a test-market area for the sandwiches, you know the sandwiches are pretty good and it is a convenient and can be a healthier fast food option.
We live 90 minutes away from the closest Subway that offers gluten-free sandwiches. My daughter really likes them and when I told her I was looking into the story tip she asked to do a quick drive to get a sandwich! But I didn’t cave in to the pressure.
Back to the story. So I got this tip and instantly emailed the public relations department at Subway. Because of the holidays it took them until after New Year’s Day to get back to me.
The response from Allison Goldberg, a public relations specialist with the company said,
“I spoke with Mark Christiano, our Baking Specialist and he said the test program is not going away. We are continuing to test the gluten free roll and brownie in select markets.” — Allison Goldberg, public relations specialist, Subway
Goldberg also confirmed the number of test markets that can create gluten-free sandwiches has not changed since I last listed them off almost exactly two years ago — January 6, 2012:
- Duluth & Cloquet, MN/Superior, WI
- Tacoma, WA
- Portland, OR
- Dallas/Fort Worth, TX
