A gimmicky — but strangely tempting — promotion is rolling out at Subways in Chicago before it debuts nationally on Jan. 18: footlong churros, pretzels and cookies.

  • So, naturally, Monica zipped over to her nearest franchise to try them all:

👍 Churro: A crispy cinnamony delight ($2).

👍 Pretzel: Fresh and pillowy, served with honey mustard ($3).

🏆 Cookie: Like a warm, chewy, chocolate chip cake — big enough for four people ($5).

Pro tip: Dip the churro in the honey mustard! Surprisingly delicious.
