Subway freshens up its dessert menu with mint chocolate chip cookies

The Daily Meal

Mint is in this season, and Subway has just introduced new mint chocolate chip cookies, available at participating restaurants for a limited time only. As the name makes clear, the new treat is a rich chocolate cookie with mint chips, loaded with semi-sweet chocolate chips and with a touch of natural peppermint extract.

"Our guests crave our cookies just as much as our sandwiches," Andy Dismore, director of menu management and innovation, said in a statement. "We're sure our guests are going to love the latest cookie flavor to come out of our kitchen."

The cookies were introduced on National Cookie Day, Dec. 4. And since December's a huge gifting month, diners can also pick up a Cookie eGift card, available in increments of $1 for one cookie, $2 for three cookies or $8 for a dozen. You don't have to leave your couch to purchase the gift. Order online and recipients will receive the card via email.

And maybe the breath-freshening mint in the cookie can help diners out after they sample another new Subway menu item: The two new subs that can be ordered on cheesy garlic bread.

Chocolate and mint are always a holiday hit, but the combo is especially popular this year in the restaurant world. Burger King is featuring an Oreo-peppermint milkshake, and Chick-fil-A's peppermint-chocolate chip milkshake is back on the chicken restaurant's menu for a limited time only. Shake things up this holiday season with a look at the world's freakiest milkshakes.
