Blimpie: Wall Street casualty?
A Hoboken411 reader sent this email in about the shrinking meat content of Blimpie sandwiches:
Wall St. troubles affecting local sub shops?
“Each football season, me and my friends gather for a day of exciting NFL action on Sundays.
Typically, our food delivery of choice are large Blimpie sandwiches. Whether it’s the Blimpie Best, chicken cutlet or roast beef, we’ve always enjoyed a hearty meal during the games. Tasty and satisfying!
However, we’ve noticed a disturbing trend the past two weeks. Every sub we order turns out to be a “bread sandwich.” The amount of cold cuts they’ve put on has been reduced by a significant amount, to the point where we taste more bread than meat. We feel ripped off, and will probably stop ordering from them – and go to places like Vito’s or (hopefully soon) Five Guys Burgers and Fries.
It’s not that we don’t enjoy Blimpie – it’s been our favorite for years. It’s just that we feel it’s now a blatant ripoff to get one or two slices of meat for the money we spend.”
Anyone else notice the diminishing product values in and around Hoboken?
