I think they are a bit too short so that you buy a cookie for 90cts when you leave unsatisfied.

You guys, 1 inch for millions of people is a pretty big deal. Suing seems fair to me if they don't fix it.

it's n about the inch, it's about honesty in advertising. this is an extreme example, I admit borderline satirical, but it is what it is. you can't advertise one thing and sell another. period. and from what I'm hearing, it sounds as if these are systematically manufactured one inch short. in that sense, it's definitely a scam.

I wasn't referring to Subway

Edit: I do agree though, you should be getting what they said you're getting

Doubt it makes it to court.

That was their response after all this started. Actually, almost verbatim what it was. The issue is that for years they have advertised it as being 12".

Dog meat and beef are not the same product.


I understand what you're saying, but that's a shit example.


It's not a sub with all the things I asked and paid for, it's a sub that's missing an inch of what I asked and paid for.

The whole point is that both are equally cases of false advertising. Neither is a health hazard or the like, but both are false advertising.

Would you really value an 11 inch sandwich at 11/12 of the price? I call bullshit. The $5 price-point would absolutely stick, even if it were a 10 inch sandwich.

They probably stopped when they cut back an inch. As a way of protecting themselves legally.

You paid for a footlong, not a 12" sub. See the difference?

Y'all niggaz is missing the real point. Business and corporations fuck us all the time over fine print and minutia. It's totally fair for us to do the same thing back to them. You think Subway doesn't systematically make their buns 11 inches because 'nobody will notice' and it saves them $500 annually in baking costs? Give them a taste of their own sandwiches

I honestly don't care, I get the same amount of bacon regardless of whether the sandwich is 12 inches or 11 inches. And the bread pretty much sucks anyway, I never eat the ends of it.

So yeah, people are stupid.

Why do the people suing deserve the money and not everyone who's ever bought a subway? But seriously, $5m for that

All companies do this. Have you ever bought a bag of chips and noticed it's only half a bag full?

Or how about soda companies, that slowly shrink the amount of soda in each bottle, so no one notices. Then they reduce the price and people think they're getting some great deal. Meanwhile, Coke just made an extra 100 million dollars because so many people buy their products, and new customers decided to buy because they were won over by the "sale" price.

It's crappy, but all major food companies cut corners, and since they're so big, saving even 10 cents on a product is gonna make them an extra million.

I'm not really complaining. If it's one thing American's don't need it's extra fast food and soda.

But hey, you can't get shorted an inch of an apple. (although we probably do since we farm with the same model that we make fake bread for a fast food chain.)

They fill the bags half full then flush them with Nitrogen, not only to preserve the chips for longer, but also to provide an air buffer so that the chips don't all break during handling.

Literally nobody does this.
