Where Does Subway Get Its Tomatoes From?!

It’s happened twice now in the last week at two different Subway stores located 25 miles apart from each other.  Half green tomatoes that taste like cardboard and have zero visual appeal.  You be the judge – below is the photo of my Subway sandwich and normal tomatoes from Stop & Shop placed next to it for comparison.


How hard can it be to find a ripe tomato?


  1. Jessica Haliburton says

    A: If you had a problem with the color of the tomatoes, why didn’t you say anything before they put them on the sandwich? They make it right in front of you.

    B: The tomatoes are shipped the second they are more red than green, so when they arrive, they are just at the beginning of their ripe stage.

    C: The tomatoes in the store go bad much faster, have dyes in them, and have been toyed with as much as possible. (Not saying it’s bad, just saying they’re running a business, not a family farm).

    D: If you don’t like Subway’s tomatoes and are obviously willing to go to a store and slice your own tomatoes (shown in the photo above), why don’t you just use the tomatoes at home on your Subway? Or make your own sandwich if you need each ingredient to taste a certain way?

    E: Why complain to the internet with a picture of you fixing the error? Why not just let Subway know that this batch of tomatoes, you found nasty?

    Also… This site if for political insights and observations, why wouldn’t you post your complaint on Facebook? The people there might actually care.

  3. yes right I should have complained and had the sandwich maker go in the back and get some vine ripened real tomatoes off the shelf where they are kept just in case the customers notice what crappy tomatoes are being put on their sandwich. Subway is OK for a quick bite but let’s face it – the ingredients are not top qualify like you would get in a good deli at a higher price. Consumer’s choice.

  4. I will leave that up to you.
