I know Morningstar Farms makes the Subway patty. It's been so long since I've had Blimpies, I don't remember if they're the same or not.
Thanks for posting. Don't be a stranger!

|GhostUser||OMG...someone mentioned they paid $8 (USA) for a foot long Veggie Patty? I paid $4.99 yesterday for a footlong. I would have complained! It was slightly more expensive them some of the other subs, but basically fell in the middle pricewise. I have paid about the same at Blimpies.|

Howdy folks...I have avoided Subway for many years for a number of reasons:
1) Those "Veggie Delites" were boring, not very nutritious, and simply not enough food for me.
2) I hated the bread (I'm from NY and like harder bread, not mushy, soft bread).
3) I had heard, many years back, that the wheat bread actually had lard in it (I don't know if this is still true). The recommendation was to actually eat the white bread, which was vegetarian.
4) I hate the commercials.
However, yesterday, I went to a Subway b/c all the other places around it had an hour wait (I've never seen a Subway with more than a few people in it!!!). They had a "Veggie Patty" (wasn't called VeggieMax) on the menu. Was surprised. Had never seen it there before.
Now, if you live on the East Coast (don't know if this is true elsewhere), many of the Blimpies have a "Veggie Max" on the menu. They've had it for at least 5 years, since I have been eating them there for that long. At least they had that going for them (they don't have harder bread though...).
Both the Veggie Max and Veggie Patty appear identical. In the early 90s I used to buy the same exact thing in a round patty (I believe from Morningstar Farms). I even recognize the ingredients someone posted. I don't know if they still make it for public sale.
I'm not a regular to this board, I just wanted to post this little bit of info if you didn't know it already!

I recall having a veggie thing at a Subway here in Australia years ago, and while looking for ingredients (a bit late, huh... although I am sure it was vegan) found this:
Anyway, on their web site I can't find much information about their Aussie product ingredients (that honey in whole wheat bread thing is bizarre to Aussies), so I've contacted them to find out (from here there's a small Subway about 50 minutes walk away, a larger one about 2 hours walk away; I am considering them as possible options for somewhere to get something to eat if need be).

|natalie||hmm bit late off the mark but i just went into Subways here in Manchester, UK for the first time ever and just got the roll with salad (veggiedelite) - yummy (and only a short walk from work!). Interestingly the woman who served me said that the veggieMax is vegan (she says it says 'vegan' on the box).|

|DirtDiva||FYI - Subways are going to have salads now. By the end of August here in Cali anyways.. they have different kinds of lettuce, grape tomatoes, carrots, broccoli and there's supposed to be some new dressings too.|

|PunkRockRapunzL||I tried the 6 inch veggimax patty, it was really filling but very good. It tasted similar to Lightlife Veggie Round patties. Also, some Subways carry a soy turkey choice, but I have never tried it.|

I love the Veggie Delite - have one probably once a week or so. Since I'm not Vegan, I vary it by getting different breads, dressings, and combinations of condiments.
Once, about a year ago I think, they offered me the veggiemax, so I tried it. I liked it OK, but it was a little too heavy for me, and I was surprised that it was more expensive than any other sandwich on the menu! (The Veggie Delite was about $4, the veggiemax was more than $8!). A few months later, I got a craving for it and asked for it. They looked like I was completely insane - told me they never heard of such a thing.

|majake||the veggie delite is one of my favourite subs.|

|AuroraLily||I'll have to ask about the burger next time I am at Subway since I'm vegetarian. On the plus side about Subway, I was in there last week and had requested that before they made my veggie delight that they change their gloves. I got a nice smile instead of a scowl!!|

|GhostUser||Last time I was there I ordered the VeggieBurger. The girl started fixing the Veggie DeLite. I stopped her to correct her and she got all in a tissy. Same thing happened the following week with the same girl. They always have attitudes and the Subway Downtown at 9th and Superior (Cleveland). Don't go there.... I refuse to go in anymore.|

|CaptainSwab||Yummy. Subway veggie delight. Subway is one of my favorite places to eat out.|
|08-02-2003 10:06 PM|
Sorry to let you guys down about the veggiemax.. but it is yummy to get if you're not vegan. My boyfriend is the general manager for 4 different Subways, so I already have read most of the ingredients on the food I eat from there.. and yes I always end up getting a veggie delite with just mustard.
Any other questions about Subway you guys can PM me and I'll bug my bf about it..

|GhostUser||does putting milk and/or eggs in veggie meat really make it taste better? i don't get it|

|avocado73||Yikes, Michael I just sent you a private message about this, didn't see that you had already contacted them! Sorry!|

|Fenguin||Blimpie's also has VeggieMax, and also a new spicier MexiMax, which they can either put into a wrap or use on a sandwich. And unlike Subway, they actually go out of their way to let you know it exists.|

|oneness||oh i have had that dressing and i love it!|
|05-18-2003 03:05 PM|
They have a new vegan sauce to put on the veggie delite....I wasn't too thrilled with it, but if you're tired of oil & vinegar, at least it's a change. I also tried the new fat free red wine vinagrette, assuming it was vegan, but just learned otherwise from their website (why do they need parmesan cheese in it???). Here's the ingredients of the vegan one:
FAT FREE SWEET ONION Sugar, water, corn vinegar, corn starch, modified food starch, spices, salt, toasted onion, dehydrated onion, poppy seeds, onion juice, sodium benzoate and potassium sorbate (as preservatives), dehydrated red bell pepper, caramel color, cucumber juice, calcium disodium EDTA added to protect flavor.

|Michael||I like the Veggie Delite too but they're right, it would be nice to have a vegan option. It's kind of embarrassing when you go to Subway with a friend and all you can get is a sub without meat. It kind of reinforces the myth that veg*ns can only eat salad, bread, and french fries when they go out to eat.|

You should come to the Subways here where I live, then! I looooove the Veggie Delite with all the veggies except onions and pickles, with oil and vinegar all over it...

|epski||Yeah, Morningstar uses egg whites in practically everything.|

I really like the vegimax. It was a nice surprise to their menu, as I also get sick of veggie sandwiches. I think that's one of the things I miss most about being a vegetarian--getting to make (or get) a great sandwich in no time. Don't get me wrong, I do like tofurkey, but have had bad luck with the other veggie cold cuts--just didn't care for the "fake" taste. Cutting all sorts of veggies and such does make a great sandiwich, but takes a bit of time. It's convenient and yummy to get a sandwich packed full of goodness for not a bad price. I can't usually finish them, if I get it packed with extra veggies. You do have to get them to change thier gloves if they've been wearing them when you approached.
I still eat the eggs and dairy, so am a bit more flexible with my menu choices. The patty is almost itentical to Morningstar Farms veggie patty. The ones that have water chesnuts, red pepper, shrooms, with a tvp background.

Oh crap. Sorry guys.
I really wish I knew where I got that from.
|05-15-2003 11:31 PM|
I asked the store manager at the franchise near my office to show me the package that the veggie patties came in, and I read the ingredients myself. It said nonfat dry milk.
Since Subway does have franchises under different managers, there might be variations, I guess, but the one closest to my office building (and therefore, the one I'm most likely to go to) has patties with milk in them.
|05-15-2003 11:04 PM|
|Michael||If it's made by Morningstar Farms (and most of these seam to be) it's probably not. I'm not sure where that info came from but I wouldn't have included it if I didn't think it was from a reputable source. So if it turns out to not be vegan I apologize. But I'll let you know when I hear from them.|

|WonderRandy||I Love Love LOVE the vegimax patty!! I know it's not vegan, but I'm not entirely vegan myself... yum yum yummy!|

|GhostUser||Sorry I don't remember exactly what was in it. I just remember reading the ingredients on the box and thinking that it was pretty misleading considering it was supposed to be a healthier non meat alternative.|
