How disappointing — just when Dede & I got thoroughly hooked on Subway tuna wraps, the powers that be foolishly opted to get rid of their chewy, whole-grain, low-carb wraps! Yup, according to Jimmy Moore over at The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Blog, a Subway representative has confirmed that the "Carb Conscious Wraps" have been discontinued earlier this month and replaced with a white flour tortilla wrap at all North American Subway franchises.
What a travesty! The "Carb Conscious Wraps" had only 5 net carbs yet featured 8 grams of fiber & a whopping 14 grams of protein! The crummy replacement wraps have over 20 net carbs but less than 1 gram of fiber — and no flavor! Ack!
What will we do now? Are we without recourse? Well, maybe not. For starters, when visiting your local Subway franchise restaurant, tell the owner you want the old-style Atkins-friendly, low-carb, goodness back! You can also fill in the Subway Customer Service Form to send a signal, loud & clear, that we all want the "Carb Conscious Wraps" back! So get with it, people! Let’s make this happen!
Update: David Turner, owner of the MCH Subway franchise we frequent, added that Subway made this change without franchisee input. He recommends calling Subway at (800) 888-4848 and telling them that you prefer the original "Carb Conscious Wraps."
Update #2: Subway must be listening. Only days after Dede & I sent website feedback and emails, the MCH franchise brought back the chewy, whole-grain, low-carb wraps that we love! Power to the people!
