Food Talk And Fabulous Finds - Subway's New Fit/Fresh Buffalo Chicken Sub - anyone had it?

09-30-2009, 03:37 PM
It is new on their Fit and Fresh menu - just wondering if it tastes any good? I love the spice of buffalo chicken. 370 cals & only 7 grams of fat. And they are using new light ranch dressing on it.

I have no choice but to go out somewhere on Monday nights for dinner, because of a tight schedule with kids activities. This is one of the only restaurants I feel comfortable getting something at where we have to go.

That looks pretty good...hope they get it at OUR Subway...

54 Carbs!!!:eek::eek::eek:

The carbs would kill me. I use to eat at subway all the time, and I think they make it out to be more healthy than it really is. I am pretty much done with subway.

I miss subway bread lol.

Sounds good to me if you are calorie counting :)

Subway can definitely be a healthy lunch. It is the oil and mayo that kills the calories and also the big subs. Although I just don't like their bread. If I'm going to have a sandwich, I'm going to go somewhere that has good bread. It is probably why I rarely have sandwiches any more!

370 calories isn't bad for a sandwich. Personally, I'd prefer the Chipotle veggie salad which has about the same amount of calories.

Oh and I noticed subway has flatbread sandwiches. I saw that the other day at the airport (and my only choice was subway). I passed on the flatbread thinking it would be higher in calories and I looked it up! Each piece of flatbread is 240 calories. Yikes.

beerab: I just count calories (although I like to get the most from my calories & cut a lot of fat), so this is well within reason for my plan. :yes:

nelie: Holy moly - that flatbread is more than I would have thought! Glad I haven't tried any. :fr:

I just got off the phone with my local Subway. They do not have it now, but are going to start carrying it next week. :dancer:

You could always turn it into a salad for way less carbs.

I normally don't like subway's chicken, except the chicken parmesean (did they do that here or was that just in Aus?). But this looks really interesting to me. I haven't had the opportunity yet, but I do want to try it. If you beat me to it, let me know how it is!

fyi- it's 7 WW points, that probably doesn't include the ranch. I always feel like I shouldn't be eating it when I have to flip the points finder over to the back side!

I have wanted to try that SO BADLY, but I just haven't had a chance to go to subway yet.

I am a big fan of buffalo chicken, so had to try it. I really liked it! It's an added bonus that it's on the Fit menu. At least I can have this once in a while, in place of my fave buffalo chicken pizza which I am sure is NOT so Fit menu worthy.

I haven't been to a Subway in a very long time. Do they have a whole wheat bread option?

They have a 9-grain wheat bread. I also like the honey-oat.

It was ok. I would have liked it spicer and I'm not big on Subway, but I love buffalo sauce and it is tastier than most things on its menu. The last time I had the roasted chicken it was awful. I've had soy chicken that was more chickeny than that.

Still haven't tried it yet, but I was talking to my sister about it this weekend. Apparently they test marketed it near her like a year ago. She said she loved it.

OMG! We don't have that in the UK :( Or the flat breads. I looked at the website you linked in and you have so much better stuff than we do!

I love Subway sandwiches, mainly because compared to the sad, mayonnaise ridden sandwiches we usually get here, they are much tastier, chunkier, healthier and cheaper. Plus you get to chose what you want rather than picking up a plastic box of who knows what.

I really hope that Buffalo chicken sandwich comes our way, I want one!

My husband had one Sunday for lunch and liked it a lot...he'd eat anything not tied down, though. I'm not a HUGE Subway fan, but it's a better option than our OTHER "fast food" places in a pinch...we've got Dairy Queen and Golden Chick (all fried, all the time). That's if it's gotta be fast and can't be at home for whatever reason, Subway is the go-to place.

Finaly tried it today. It was alright, not that exciting to me. Next time I think I'll save some points and stick with the turkey.

10-07-2009, 08:12 PM
ugh! I hate their chicken so much. something about the texture of that chicken... just doesn't taste right to me.

You know what I've noticed with alot of foods, even healthy ones.. is that they have ALOT of sodium. I've looked at several of those subway fit meals and I was not shocked, I figured they had alot of sodium in them.
