Subway Low-Fat Buffalo Chicken Sandwich

subwaybuffalo.jpgI like Subway subs, and I love Buffalo Wings, so when I heard about Subway's new Low-Fat Buffalo Chicken Sandwich, I was intrigued. I'm sorry to say that this sub is nothing but a tragic disappointment. My first impression upon biting into it was "where is the buffalo sauce flavor?" You'd think that because the sliced pieces of chicken are sitting in the so-called buffalo sauce for a while, the taste would be pretty strong. You'd think that, but you'd be wrong. I thought my senses were deceiving me, so I popped a piece of chicken by itself into my mouth, and still could barely taste anything different from plain chicken. As for the new light ranch sauce, it too had no flavor. I might as well have gotten the Oven-Roasted Chicken Breast sandwich. The only difference I would have noted is that the "Buffalo" Chicken Sandwich has the chicken cut into little strips. I'm immensely disappointed by this sub, especially since Subway has made some great and original low-fat subs before (like the Sweet Onion Chicken Teriyaki). Though this sub in itself doesn't taste terrible (it tastes like a regular chicken sandwich), its lack of flavor kills it. To call Subway's newest creation a Buffalo Chicken sandwich would be culinary blasphemy.

If you ask for extra buffalo sauce and ranch the sandwich is 100% better.

i had one of these too, and i noticed the same thing. i dont know what kind of buffalo sauce they were using, but it was disgusting.

Agreed with the review. Personally, this sandwich has been the worst one I've had at Subway to date.

I've found that the oven roasted chicken with buffalo sauce and ranch (light or regular) is actually much better. Order that instead if you want a sandwich with the expected flavor the actual buffalo chicken lacks.
