We've seen all the mouthwatering ads for the new Flatizzas and the new Chicken Enchilada Melt...both recent additions to Subway's menu. So how do they stack up? It was lunchtime so we decided to try a Flatizza and Chicken Enchilada Melt and tell you what we thought about them.
The Chicken Enchilada Melt
We had this sandwich prepared exactly as the advertisement photo in the store depicts - the already-seasoned meat on flatbread with added Fritos(r), melted cheddar cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, and black olives. And this sandwich didn't disappoint. The meat is seasoned - not too spicy, and the Fritos(r) give the sandwich a fantastic crunch. Pair that up with lettuce, tomatoes, and olives and you have a satisfying lunch with a zesty enchilada twist.
Four of us Dollarstretchers here in the office gave this sandwich a try, and two out of four of us thought it was top notch. The other two didn't dislike it, but probably wouldn't order it again if choosing from the variety of sandwiches that Subway offers. The two of us that liked it, really enjoyed it and would order it again.
According to Subway's website, the 6-inch Chicken Enchilada Melt sandwich is 580 calories, which compared to Subway's other sandwich offerings, is on the higher end of calories. And as for the cost, today our footlong cost $6.00, which could potentially be two six-inch meals at $3.00 per meal. So if you are looking for a tasty sandwich with a zesty twist, give this one a try, and see what you think!

For our second course we tried a pepperoni Flatizza, just to see what the buzz is about. Tomato sauce, pepperoni, and cheese atop a flatbread, all toasted make up the Pepperoni Flatizza, and it was also a tasty meal option. In addition to pepperoni version, Subway also offers a Veggie Flatizza, a Spicy Italian Flatizza, and a Cheese Flatizza.
Four of us tried out the Pepperoni Flatizza, and two out of the four of us again, really liked it. We loved that it was very flavorful and really cheesy! Also, the Flatizza is not too heavy, and just right for a individual-sized lunch entree. Although the other two didn't dislike the Flatizza, they just prefer pizza as a slice, or the deep-dish style pizzas.
According to Subway's website, the Pepperoni Flatizza is 500 calories, which again is a bit on the higher end for calories according to their other offerings. But today, we paid $3.00 for the Flatizza, and that's a great price for decent sized meal. If you're craving pizza, but don't want a whole pie, try out a Flatizza! They are a great option for an individual pizza meal!
