Subway launching new Cadbury Creme Egg sandwich and, yep, we just threw up in our mouths
I had a friend in high school who worked at Subway, and she told me they would leave all the meat and cheese out. All night. And all day. But somehow, this story might even be worse than that. (Maybe. That one's pretty bad.)
The sandwich chain just had to debut an absolutely disgusting "Easter" themed sandwich. On Good Friday of all days. The sandwich consists of Italian white bread and a Cadbury Creme egg melted in the middle. I literally had to check and make sure this wasn't an April Fool's joke.
The sandwich is only available in the UK this Friday, and they're actually giving them away for free. They're also only making 500 sandwiches. I simply cannot imagine why.

Charlotte Docker, brand executive for Cadbury Creme Egg, explained, "When Subway approached us to create this eggs-traordinary Submelt, we simply couldn’t resist. The highly-anticipated Creme Egg season is in full swing and we’re so excited to launch this innovative product with Subway as a final hoorah of the season."
The festive sandwich has received a less-than-welcome reception on social media. The people of Twitter had some choice words. One user wrote, "Worst business decision since Bud Light." Another said they had to make sure it wasn't a Babylon Bee article. And one person simply asked, "why?"
Which I think we are all wondering. And I also wonder why the sandwich is available on Good Friday and not Easter. Plus, remember when Subway was marketed as the "healthy" fast-food option? And now they're literally just melting chocolate on top of white bread. An interesting marketing strategy for sure.
But there is a slight silver lining- at least there's no question about what you're getting in this sandwich. Not like their tuna. Stay far away from that, ahem, "fish."
