Taste Test: Domino's Submarine Sandwiches

Taste Test: Domino's Submarine Sandwiches

Last week YumSugar and I got our hands on Domino's recently released hot submarine sandwiches. The sandwiches, which come in four flavors — chicken bacon ranch, Philly cheese steak, Italian, and chicken parm — filled our office with a delicious smell of fresh-baked bread. Each sandwich comes in a neat box that effectively retains the heat. To find out how the sandwiches tasted,

.

The sandwiches tasted strangely like Domino's pizza. With its chewy, soft texture, the "artisan Italian bread" tastes like their pizza dough.

Philly Cheese Steak: This was my least favorite of the sandwiches. The meat was bland and the veggies soggy. The sandwich lacked flavor.

Chicken Parm: The tomato-basil marinara sauce tasted like Domino's regular pizza sauce, making this sandwich, with its chicken and two types of cheese, seem like a pizza roll.

Italian: Loaded with pepperoni, salami, ham, and peppers, this was my favorite. It tasted like a slice of Italian pizza.

Chicken bacon ranch: The combination of bacon and chicken paired perfectly, making this sandwich my second favorite. However, I couldn't taste the ranch and wondered if the person who made the sandwich forgot to include it.

Overall, I don't think I would go out of my way to eat these sandwiches. They were greasy, with too much dough and not enough filling, and afterward I felt a little gross. However, if you like Domino's pizza, you'll like the sandwiches. They're also great if you're in the mood for pizza but don't want to order an entire pie to yourself. The individual portions can easily be consumed at a desk or workplace.

Have you tried Domino's sandwiches? What did you think?

I'm all brand extensions if they work, but I don't think this will do it.

Thanks for the reviews! My husband thought they looked good on the commercials, but he doesn't like their pizza. I'll give him the heads up.

Ugh, my husband and I tried these when they were first announced. I chose to have the philly cheese sandwich (since I liked their Philly cheese pizza) and my husband had the Chicken, Bacon, Ranch. We were both completely unsatisfied, Domino's should just stick to pizza cause these sandwiches were horrible!

I had the chicken bacon ranch one, and my only "complaint" was that it could have used more ranch. My boyfriend said it was there, just... in tiny amounts. Given the state of food these days, I was surprised that it wasn't swimming in ranch. Go figure.

You know what, Domino's is one of my fiance's favorite delivery places so one night I tried the chicken parm sandwich. And it's not that impressive. He had the italian and didn't love it. So I think it best they stick to pizza. We, in the meantime, need to find a local joint with good pizza.

I'm not a huge fan of this... but I get more of an idea of what they are here, rather than the tv ads.

The "real" photos don't look appetizing at all. I think I'll pass.

Bluebellknoll -- I thought the same thing about the photo! I kept thinking "raisins, on a pizza sandwich?" You know, ladies, we probably all dislike because we are not the "target market" for Domino's. Most fast food places go after the male 18-34 category, and I can totally see this appealing to guys.

I remember when I was a kid, my mom did not buy Domino's because of some political disagreement with their corporation. Not sure exactly what her problem with them was at the time but, having lived in a few cities, I view Domino's Pizza same as KFC, Burger King, and the majority of fast food chains, a parasite that feeds poor people expensive garbage and calls it fast "food". I love junk food but I'm fortunate enough to be able to choose what I eat, economically. From Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dominos_Pizza#Controversies Tom Monaghan is one of the founders of Domino's, and while he is no longer involved with the running of the corporation, the company has been singled out for criticism from certain quarters because of Monaghan's financial support of Christian pro-life religious and political organizations, such as Operation Rescue and the Thomas More Law Center.

Not a big fan of Domino's pizza, so something tells me I probably won't like this. I'll stick with Potbelly & their perfect portions.
