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.
