When Subway took to the airwaves to advertise its sandwiches, it probably didn’t expect a food fight. But a public interest group accused the sandwich chain yesterday of making grossly misleading claims about the health benefits of its product. In the TV spots Subway spokesman Jared says three footlong Sweet Onion Chicken Teriyaki subs have less fat than one Big Mac. Those same three footlong sandwiches contain more than three and a half times as many calories as one Big Mac.
It’s ok Subway, I forgive you. Subway sandwiches are good grubbin’. I don’t know how others will take the news though.
