I am a fan of Subway for the reasons most of you are: healthy choices, variety, a decent food for your money. I even interviewed the infamous Jared from Subway when he ran the NYC Marathon last year.
Recently I was sent a gift card to Subway to try their new Vanilla Yogurt Parfait. Prior to indulging in this treat, I did some research.
Description: Made fresh daily with sweet blueberries, juicy strawberries, crunchy granola and creamy yogurt:
Okay, I’m game, sounds harmless. Feeling like a big spender, I grabbed the kids and husband for a Sunday afternoon outing. Yes, we live the big time over here. Sunday afternoon at Subway. If we are lucky we fill up the gas tank on the way for some added excitement.
Once there, we got in line. I figured these were made-to-order parfaits. Until Sam pointed to refrigerated case and said, “Umm, Mom, there they are.”
First thing I noticed is the size: very small (5.8 oz). But, for 164 calories and $1.69, what do you expect?
There was a little granola pack on the top to mix in.
Ken doesn’t eat dessert anymore (WTF? Who does that? He stopped like three years ago, something about being addicted. Good for him. Me? I still am a dessert freak). He eats a lot of yogurt. I mean like wheelbarrows full. He gave it a thumbs up. Or a dirty look.
Impressions: Overall, very tasty. Fruit was slightly frozen, but that was okay. I liked it even better on top of a cookie.
Don’t mind my chlorine damaged, stringy hair. I never said I looked pretty on Sunday afternoons.
Conclusion: I don’t think I would make a special trip to Subway just for the parfait, but it is a low cal, low fat, inexpensive option to go with your sandwich.
