Thursday, December 23: Tiger pig sandwich and chocolate orange cookie from Subway

The Eastbourne Herald team tried the tiger pig sandwich and chocolate orange cookie from Subway SUS-211223-150243001

PRICE: Six-inch sandwich – £4.39 Cookie – 69p

When I saw a deal that meant I could grab a six-inch Subway sandwich for free I knew it was my chance to try the tiger pig sandwich. It is a sandwich I have always wanted to try and why not on our final day of Christmas food reviews?

The sandwich is based around a pig-in-blanket and in the pictures it comes with cheese, ketchup, peppers and spinach – so that is exactly what I got in my herby cheese roll.

The sausage and bacon was brilliant and surprisingly the spinach, cheese, peppers and tomato sauce all worked together extremely well.

While at Subway I also picked up a chocolate orange cookie to round off the month of reviews.

Like the sandwich, the cookie was sensational. Not only did it taste like a chocolate orange, but it also had a spicy taste which I imagine came from nutmeg or cinnamon - if I had to guess.

For some reason it put me in a festive mood and the smell transported me back to Winter Wonderland – I think it must remind me of the churros.

Sandwich: 9/10

Cookie: 8/10
