  • I knew it

  • but hey thats just a theory a foooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooood theory

  • I work at a subway lol

  • Woah. Why aren't you a lawyer?

  • The opposite of unleavened bread is raisin bread

  • They add sugar to mask the weird after taste from the bread, and it didn't work. I don't know what kind of preservatives they use, but Subway probably has the worst bread ever.

  • Why is the whole grain stamp Aprooving this as 100% whole grain in the first place.

  • Watching this knowing you reacted to gamer from mars content vid like a lame

  • We thneed answers

  • Well.......I'm going to Subway for my hibernation this year with all of that sugar!!

  • The Irish tax law is not undermined by health regulation definitions as they are talking about different things. The tax definition is to differentiate between luxury and staple commodities (the UK has a sugar tax) but you do not mention this when comparing laws. The tax law in Eire is defining staple bread, and non-staple bread, not defining bread.

  • Actual video starts at min 8:00 prior to that is only gibberish

  • I know what it is Cake, it’s cake.

  • Phoenix would never eat the subway sandwich, in japanifornia they only eat b u r g e r s

  • While the graphics are slightly obnoxious to me and the high pitch comedic punch lines are unnerving, the information was presented masterfully. Very well written, and I see and recognize your work. Well done.... and I'm just an old media guy. Keep it up,

  • to be fair, most bread from america has more sugar than most sweet pastries in other countries and people from foreign countries have commented on it

  • Why does he show his face over a million times ? Ego much ?

  • 7:05 bruh you just go home and put it in the microwave.

  • I worked at a Subway - honestly, you REALLY don't want to eat there. The stuff that I could tell you would turn your stomach.

  • Fun fact, mc Donald’s buns are also cakes

  • Just an idea, is a dilemma in Mexico, quesadillas con queso o sin queso/ queso = cheess, in mexico is a big deal this topic

  • As an Irish person that very very very annoying because it love subway

  • America! known for having sandwich crisis! or at least i wish..

  • I didn't understand a single thing during this entire video, but I still enjoyed! 👍

  • Is cereal a soup?

  • OwO

  • Once I got a foot long but instead I got the best day of my life and came home with a 14 inch sandwich

  • Why should Ireland care about Bread in other countries? That is their definition of a Bread, so it shall be.

  • Last year i measured a footlong and i swear it was 11 inches

  • I don’t care if it’s cake

  • This whole theory is just applying prescriptivism instead of descriptivism

  • Subway 11 inch Cake wait isn't 11 inches a French Foot

  • "Hey judge, what's your educational background?" "I have a law degree, obviously." "And do you bake? Or study nutrition regularly?" "I do not." "Then why are we letting you decide what's bread and what's cake?" "Because taxes."

  • Yes its bread i used to work there

  • I love the taste of hole grande bread

  • That why subway subs all taste the same no matter what meats you get it all taste like bread no favor 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

  • What about sweet bread? Is that bread

  • 1970: Oh boy! I can't wait for all the scientific discoveries we will make in 50 years. 2020: Subway bread is not bread.

  • Me eating subway like: 👁👄👁

  • by watching this video it`s kinda make me want to eat subway sandwich

  • Dessert misspelled as desert at 9:55

  • It's pronounced soobway

  • why aren't my cookies delicious, I'm being cheated by cookie

  • Whats next? Life theory?????

  • If it smells like bread,looks like bread and tastes like bread then what is it? Bred.

  • For profit food chains like Subway aren't staple foods that shpuld be tax exempt. Subways bread being legally bread elsewhere than Ireland aside, they are objectively not a staple food, they are a fast-food outlet. A luxury. Why does law ignore basic sense so often? So what if their sandwhiches are bread, and could, maybe considered a staple meal? They are a for-profit, fast food outlet. Not a luxury, should not be exempt. Digusting that subways attempt to skip out on laws cos "its bread" wasn't laughed out of the courts immediately.

  • Wait it’s all cake? Always have been

  • -carries my foot long sub- me: uhhhhh this is nothing also me: -carries sandwhich and eats it-

  • I am eating subway right now ... I hope I'm eating a sandwich

  • I'm waiting for "subway meat is actually a laxative"

  • Is there no VAT in the USA?

  • i also love food theory.

  • oh you knew thats not bread.

  • OH MY FREAKING GOD IT"S THE ODD1S OUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! IM YOUR GREATEST FREAKING FAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • everything is cake

  • making bread as I watch this

  • here in germany, we indeed use a strict definition: "brot" (bread) - "stuten" (sweet yeast bread) - "kuchen" (cake). and sweet yeast bread would never be used in our fast food restaurants for sandwiches, including subway.

  • Big argument with my sons years ago when i suggested that Subway bread was rehydrated dust. I don't like to hold a grudge, but I will make an exception for Subway - I 've given them two extra chances: one store refused to give me more than 2 salad additions - BOYCOTTED; and another store wasn't clear that their bacon was hal'al, minging turkey bacon - BOYCOTTED. I did use to like their jalapeno, surprisingly spicily strong - but you don't get to get jalapeno if you've already got tomato and lettuce in your roll (in some stingy shops). I can only think that Subway is so popular because a lot of people don't like food.

  • You should try a torta if you haven’t,that would make it to at least top 10 sandwiches

  • Subway is not cake 100% its not sweet at all maybe in other places what where i live its normal bread

  • This might be a surprise I boycotted Subway earlier this year. Hope you don't actually think that's all that much of a surprise though. Somehow I knew Subway wasn't a hundred percent healthy anyway.

  • Tecnically all subway sandwiches are actually side hotdogs

  • Most american bread is a cake for Europeans ....

  • I ate plenty of whole grain in the barn Lolol Also fvck gov't and taxes especially when they give billions to many countries

  • Word of the day : *Bread*

  • Did Sean give you permission to use his likeness?

  • Me literally eating subway right now LMAO

  • I’m Irish and didn’t know this, I didn’t even know vat wasn’t common. While mat is is American and knows this

  • Watching how Subway and other companies put fillers in their "bread", I frustratingly realized that the video is likewise made up of mainly fillers. It took almost 8 minutes to even touch on the subject of why Subway bread may not be bread.

  • TFW you accidently spell dessert wrong.

  • I'm Irish
