When can I get a footlong cookie at Subway?

Well, if you want to make a road trip to Chicago, you could get it Monday December 4th. Or three other giant cities.

Michigan and the rest of the country will get it "sometime next month." Meaning sometime in December.

How many calories are in the footlong cookie at Subway?

According to their nutritional information, the company hasn't released that information yet. So, we'll consider the calories and fat another way.

A standard chocolate chip or double chocolate cookie at Subway restaurants is 210 calories with 9-10 grams of fat.

We'd imagine you'd have approximately four regular cookies within a footlong, right? That would be around 800+ calories and 40-ish grams of fat.

Oh well... Treat yourself and worry about calories after the holidays.
