Subway Brings Back Massive Dessert Treat After Four-Month Absence

Rest easy, America: Subway’s footlong cookie is back.

After four months, Subway announced Wednesday the return of the oversized chocolate chip cookie. It was pulled from many restaurants just two weeks after its January debut due to high demand.

The giant cookie was part of Subway’s new Sidekick lineup. This is key to Subway’s turnaround plans. The lineup also includes a Cinnabon churro and an Auntie Anne’s soft pretzel. These remained on sale in the past few months. Subway said it has sold over 5 million cookies since January.

Subway added customization to its menu and pushed orders to its app. They also increased their international presence. Recently, they introduced freshly sliced meats. This is a major change from their previous pre-sliced cold cuts.

“The Footlong Cookie has delighted millions of Americans since January, sparking unprecedented demand,” said Paul Fabre, Subway’s senior vice president of culinary and innovation.

Fabre added that the chain “worked diligently to rush” additional supply to restaurants.

Effective immediately, the cookie is available to order again. You can get it on Subway’s website, app, and third-party services like DoorDash and Uber Eats. They are also available in person.

Subway could use a boost: it continues to close locations, with over 400 restaurants shut in the US last year. Subway ended the year with its smallest number of US restaurants since 2005, totaling 20,133.
