Tessellated!


Rejoice! The moment has arrived!

Subway Sandwich Shops officially began tessellating their cheese today, so instead of their previous overlapping stacked cheese triangle pattern, the triangles are supposed to be arranged to never overlap and to offer more complete sammich coverage.

So I visited my local Subway today in celebration of this blessed event, armed with my secret planetdan-cam. At first I was concerned, because the female Sandwich Artist was stacking the cheese the old-fashioned way for the patrons ahead of me. My face got hot as I mentally prepared a reproachful speech for when she would inevitably flub my pepperjack. Fortunately, there was a last minute employee switcheroo, and I got a pinch hitter.

As you can see, I was overjoyed to see that my new Sandwich Artist was heeding the new cheese placement directive. But my happiness soon faded as I realized that this also resulted in getting less cheese. I am almost certain that previous six-inchers were given three pieces of cheese, not two. Am I wrong?

ps. Forgive my big fat wide face in the video. It’s due to the camera angle, and not any sort of excessive Subway consumption.

    Yeah, but you’re still eating Subway so you still lose.

    I had the same realization myself. I don’t actually even really like Subway. :(

    What? You don’t like subway? Their honey mustard alone is worth going there! Try this: Italian herbs and cheese bread, roast beef, pepper jack or provolone, lettuce, tomato, green peppers, banana peppers, black olives (ask for more they always give you like four circles) pickles and like three lines of honey mustard and you’re golden! That sandwich is the best sandwich ever. And if you’re up for it, ask for jalapeño’s on the side and just throw a piece in every couple bites. YUMMY Its huge because of all the vege’s but you’re like done eating before you even finish the six inch sandwich.

    I see you got the Italian BMT, mighty fine choice my friend.

    Hahahaha! Subway managed to kill two birds with one stone. They were able satisfy customer dissatisfaction with untesselated cheese and managed to minimize product, still requiring sandwich connoisseurs to request extra cheese and be able to charge them for it.

    I am happy for your victory.

    Can arranging two pieces of cheese be called tesselation? I would think you’d need at least three.

    Unfortunately, I worked at a Subway and it was always 2 pieces of cheese on a 6 inch. But, hey, some random trivia—what does BMT stand for?

    Wait for it….Bigger, Meatier, and Tastier. I think of a penis everytime I tell someone that.

    Oh, random fun fact–There was a regular there who was a midget and I got love letters from him, written on napkins covered in chocolate chip finger prints. Jealous?
