Jalepeno Shortage hits Subway!

By PM - 10 March 2009 32

A while ago I posted news of a supposed pineapple juice shortage and, miraculously, almost immediately the pineapple juice started to flow once more.

Envoking Murphy’s Law, I’m now alerting Rioters to the absence of jalepenos in Canberra Subways (the sandwich chain), apparently due to an American supply shortage.

What’s Your opinion?

When I get a sub with Jalapenos they never give me very many, so I ask for more and they put more on because they are all out of bad puns.

Ask them to put more on.

It’s what I always do. They seem to take it as a personal challenge to see how many they can shove on.

Last week I went into Subway and asked for a Turkey footlong.

When we got to the salads bit, I said, “I’ll have it without Jalapenos”. The young lass behind the counter said, “we’re out of Jalapenos”. And then I said, “Oh OK, well I’ll have it without olives then”.

She just look at me.

Ask for extra jalapenos, I do and they always put more on. Maybe it’s my fault?
BTW the olives at Subway are crap, kind of metallic taste.

It’s all good, I’ll give them some of my habaneros that they can use instead… tee hee hee.

About this time last year Subway at Belco lake had a sign saying something along the lines of “due to a nationwide lettuce shortage we are only able to provide minimal lettuce on your sandwich. We hope this doesn’t cause any inconvenience”.

I thought it was strange as McDonalds and the other fast food chains didn’t seem to be having the same problem.

Well there were plenty of pickled and fresh jalapenos in the US during Feb. I’d love to buy a giant jar of them at Walmart, the thing is like a gallon and you need two hands to lift it, cost under $5, but I cannot work out how to bring it home.

So plan B is to pickle my own, I have found some recipes that look like they get the same result.

They didn’t use mice then? KFM?

I doubt jalepenos are fattening…in fact, hot food speeds up your metabolism & aids in losing weight (not that japapenos are actually very hot).

I doubt you’ll get jalapenos unless I go looking for ’em, PM … however, I did have jalapenos on my Subway just last week!

But I’m on a diet now.

*sigh*

I bought a KFC Tower Burger the other week at KFC Hawker and their supplier didn’t supply the bread for it, so I had to get it in an alternative bread roll. Very disappointing…

Pfft.
