    Subway is one of the few fast-food places I sometimes go by myself, when not on the road. Not the sandwiches, though: The nice big salad (everything but jalapenos, plus cheese & sometimes egg), with guac and vinegar, for which I need do no work at all, just order and pay. I'm in favor of Subway.

    I was going to comment about how awesome the salads are at subway. I like to get them when traveling or when I am too lazy to pack a salad for lunch. Love to get the veggie with cucumbers, tomatoes, onions, olives, banana peppers, green peppers with the fat free italian dressing packet.

    I do like subway subs, but only occasionally. A few times a year I just get a craving for a subway sub. They have a unique taste that only subway subs have, lol.

    They have a unique smell too. I had a friend who knew I had gone to Subway before meeting up with her because she could SMELL it on me.

    I does have a unique smell lol!
    I've always found the produce subpar - just tastes/looks like typical fast food bagged/pale/flavorless roughage.
    I do, however, remember having and liking a cookie I had there many, many years ago.

    The Subway hype and smell and addiction (lol) comes from the bread. don't look at the ingredients. toxic!

    I do liek their cookies...

    Since most bread really isn't even good**, except maybe as a useful device to make sandwiches more portable, I can't say that I care.

    Chemikillz aren't inherently scary just because big words or what else they're ingredients in, though. Consider Dihydrogen Monoxide. Kills many people every year, including some by simple ingestion, but I chose to consume lots of the stuff. (For full factual warnings, see http://dhmo.org)

    ** In my own personal very biased opinion. ;) Y'all who think it's great can have my share, except the one local farmers market guy's focaccia, and maybe a few other select cases.

    I think what is scarier is the soybean oil! haha

    The fruits I don’t like are peaches and blueberries. I don’t even like peach flavored things, and the actual fruit texture bothers me. Blueberries taste metallic to me, but I can tolerate them if mixed with other fruit.

    I like most fruit, but mostly on their own. I'm not generally fond of things like blueberry muffins, and I have to be in the mood for a fruit-filled pie.

    Hate Mayo, seafood especially sushi and cod fish that’s gross.

    I actually like blueberry muffins, I think cooking them helps cut the metallic taste for me. Generally, though, I'm the same, and prefer fruit on its own. I generally don't like pieces of things in my baked goods, I prefer a smooth texture. Nuts are okay, but fruit (and especially raisins) create a weird texture unless they "melt" enough to better match the texture of the rest of the food. Texture is a big part of my food dislikes, and even the context of the texture - raisins are fine on their own, but I can't stand them in cakes or cookies.

    Cantaloupe is gross, strawberries ( most berries) are only good with something on them, bananas taste awesome but banana flavored anything is a disappointment.

    I'm picky about cantaloupe, it has to be good ripe cantaloupe. I hate it when I get bits that are hard. I could eat strawberries for an eternity, though. Same with bananas, and I do like banana flavored things, although they don't taste like banana (which I've heard is due to it being based off of a mostly-extinct strain of banana).
