With the recent implement of the "Fresh to Go" sandwiches at 7-Eleven and their subsequent bad reviews, its hard to consider the convenience store as an alternative to classic sub shops like Jersey Mike's or Jimmy John's. But living on a budget in today's world of $5 footlongs, you really want to get your money's worth.
As opposed to the "Fresh to Go" sandwiches, the wrapped and refrigerated cold cut sandwiches, including Cuban, Turkey and Provolone, and Ham and Swiss, are all made with sustainable meats and cheeses much like the competing sub shops. The sandwiches range from $2.99 to $4.99 and boast more meat than most serving sizes of places like Subway.
The only difficult question lies with the meat within the sandwiches, how healthy is it? One of the most popular campaigns began with Jared after losing weight on a Subway diet. The fresh vegetables offered by the chain is unmatched by 7-Eleven, who offers more in processed meats and less in fresh ingredients. So even though the sandwiches offer more food and better prices, the health benefits may cost those extra few dollars.
