Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: KFC Subs Confirmed sighting: KFC Subs
Posted: 21:54 Wed 05-Oct-2005. Price: 2.99 per sandwich; slightly more for meal deal. Location: Leicester Square, London. Sub-flavours: Salsa, BBQ, or Seasoned Mayo. Nutritional unusualness: Unknown.
Snackspot reports: Possibly a reaction to the currently-promoted McDonald's Toasted Deli Sandwiches (and of course Burger King Oven Baked Baguettes), but I actually prefer these to Mickey D's - you get a lot of chicken, a fair amount of salad, an option of the same old BBQ sauce (or two slightly subtler seasonings), all in a soft bread roll which (crucially) doesn't take ages to put together. They may even be part of a new 99p-ish KFC menu that features something that looks like a "Mini Twister" and a Strawberry Shortcake version of their Ice-cream Avalanche.

...While, in other sandwich-style savouries, "KerryMaid" seems almost suspiciously well-informed about the launch of Kraft Philadelphia Splendips, announcing: Developed to provide consumers with a tasty all-in-one dipping snack that's a little more virtuous than many traditional snacking options, Philadelphia Splendips snacks are available in three flavours: Philadelphia Splendips Chives - crunchy chive crackers with reduced fat chive Philadelphia and tomato chutney dip, containing 160 calories and 4.4gm of fat; Philadelphia Splendips Nachos - crispy nachos, reduced fat Philadelphia and mild salsa dip, containing 150 calories and 6.5gm of fat; and Philadelphia Splendips Cheesecake - crunchy mini digestive biscuits, reduced fat cheesecake flavour Philadelphia and raspberry coulis, containing 196 calories and [that's enough Philadelphia Splendips info - Ed].

Comment: maybe it's like that movie "The Philadelphia Experiment", where they smear all the surfaces of a US Navy battleship with soft cream cheese - in an attempt to make it invisible to radar, but it actually makes them travel back in time!

Comment: If that was a real movie I'd go watch it. Your talents are wasted on this site. You need to start pitching this to studios.

Comment: i think the best subs has to be subway, the differant fresh breads you can choose, and you can watch and add differant fillings as you go, and choose whether to have dressing or not,they were the first to bring over the subs and they are truly yum.you can also have the specials oif the day,which is usually a meat and veg option (at!) 1.99, thats a real bargain, failing that trusted pie mash and eels are a good option!!!good old cockney grub, hot filing and cheap, i have the recipe if anyone wants it, contact me at sarahknight2010 (at!) hotmail.com

Comment: Philadelphia splendips are a rip off, 99p and you get hardly any biscuits or philadelphia or raspberry coulis, and the packet is twice as big as it should be, I think these should be priced 30-40p, because as they are, they are way overpriced

Comment: The new (or not so new anymore) "brunchettas" (http://www.goldenvale.com/products/brunchettas.php)are much nicer than the splendips! They are slightly over priced, but at least you get proper chunky slices of cheddar cheese. Its like having your own ploughmans. Just had the new one (a cranberry and soft cheese), and im so addicted.... less than 5% fat too (the nutritional on the website is wrong). Totally recommend the cranberry one!!

Comment: Yes these Brunchettas really appeal to me but i've never tried them because they have always been so expensive, how much do you get in the packet to justify a price of something like £1.60ish 66054 7 96
