About This Quiz

Subway has long stood out from the rest of the fast-food crowd by being the fresh, fully customizable option you crave when greasy fast food is just not what you want. It's like food you'd make at home if you had a ton of fresh ingredients and a display case full of meat. But you don't, so you go to Subway. And with all those combinations of bread, meat, cheese, vegetables and sauces, you could probably make a few thousand different sandwiches.  

Knowing that there are so many sandwich choices at Subway also means that there are a lot of little ways to gain insight into who you are as a person.  It's true! Not everyone wants a pizza sub with mayo and jalapenos, you know. We're pretty confident that if you build a Subway order for us, we can guess just how old you are. Go through the quiz and pick your sandwich favorites; let us know if turkey is superior to ham and if Italian herb and cheese bread is superior to 9-grain honey oat. Decide if you need lettuce, onion and tomato, or if all you need is extra pickles.  When it's all said and done, we'll make our guess, then probably go have a sandwich.
