Subway Tests Hummus In Continued Effort To Make Us Hate Our Favorite Things

Okay. Alright. Okay. It wasn’t a problem when Subway started putting bacon on sandwiches because there are plenty of shittily-sourced bacon sandwiches all over the world. It was a problem when they started putting avocado on sandwiches, because, come on; does anything sound less appealing or more unsavory than Subway Sandwich Shop avocado? No. It sounds like a bastardization of the noble mushfruit.

In their continued effort to appeal to The Health-Conscious Youngs, Subway has now begun testing hummus on their sandwiches. Frankly, hummus on a white bread sandwich sounds about as bad as Subway avocado, but please, just go inside your mind-palaces for a moment and think about the consistency and flavor of Subway-grade hummus. Is hummus ruined for you yet? WELCOME TO OUR WORLD.

    I can’t speak to their hummus, but most people’s exposure to hummus is to shitty grocery store mass packaged shit, so it won’t be much different and I actually think more people being exposed to the wonder that is hummus is a good thing. Much better then the whole greek yogurt fad…

    Also I don’t know what Subways you frequent, but the ones I have been to use actual avacados, not some mystery subway avacado©. It could be my proximity to California where avacados litter people’s front yards they’re so plentiful.
