Subway Will Serve Footlong Cookies At A Single Location For A Few Hours

"Get 'em while they're hot, folks," says Subway, because the window for its footlong cookies is small — we mean incredibly small.

It's been a tough couple of years for the food service industry, but the sandwich chain is swimming upstream, per a press release. Subway enjoyed a record-high sales year in 2021, with revenue surpassing projections by almost $1.4 billion and a 7.5% increase in same-store sales from 2019. Subway now has more than 37,000 restaurants spanning over 100 countries, and it revamped its menu earlier this year in July. Now, Subway is back with another innovation just in time for December 4: National Cookie Day 2022.

In honor of the holiday, Subway is rolling out its first-ever footlong cookies, via a press release dropped earlier this week. But, don't expect to see these doughy monstrosities at your local Subway store. The foot-long cookies will only be sold at Cookieway, a pop-up restaurant solely dedicated to the brand's confectionary offering. The cookies will only be available first-come first-serve from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. on December 4 at 1575 SW 8th Street in Calle Ocho, Miami — and that's it. Although, per the press release, six and 12-pack Cookie Bundles will be available at Subway locations nationwide for fans who want to celebrate National Cookie Day.

Not only are these cookies a foot long, but they're also going to be loaded with toppings. (Believe it.) Here's what fans can expect.

Hope you're hungry

Subway's loaded footlong cookies will be available in four flavors, according to the press release. The "Subway Cookie Club" is a double chocolate cookie topped with vanilla frosting, white chocolate macadamia chips, classic chocolate chips, raspberry cheesecake cookie chunks, rainbow sprinkles, chocolate sauce, and raspberry sauce. The "MexiCali" is an avant-garde savory option: a vanilla sugar cookie topped with dulce de leche, corn nuts, mole, ground coffee, espresso chips, and Tajín. 

The fittingly named "Monster" is a double chocolate cookie with peanut butter, peanut butter cups, Reese's pieces, butterscotch, and pretzels, then drizzled with chocolate and white chocolate sauce. The "Great Pickle" is a vanilla sugar cookie topped with peanut butter, marshmallow cream, crushed potato chips, bacon, and dill pickles. (Yes, really.)

Subway rolled out Cookieway last year too, per Chew Boom, at 91 Allen Street in Manhattan's Lower East Side. It opened on December 2 and remained in operation until December 5, but it was dramatically more similar to a standard bakery than this year's Cookieway. In 2021, the Allen Street location offered nine different cookie flavors, but they were all standard sizes; Subway is upping the ante with this year's promotion. Unlike the chain's iconic sandwiches, these massive cookies won't be "five-dollar footlongs." The price tag is a donation to the 501c3 Subway Cares Foundation, a nonprofit dedicated to promoting food access.
