The Dr. Seuss classic, Green Eggs and Ham is one of the greatest children’s books ever, written to encourage kids to open their minds and try new things. I love the book but, I’m skeptical about Subway’s new ham ‘n’ cheese sandwich “homage” featuring egg patties with – yep, you knew it was coming – green yolks.
The temporary menu item was created to coincide with the launch of Netflix’s new animated series, Green Eggs and Ham, starring Adam Devine as Sam I Am, Michael Douglas as Guy I Am, and produced by Jared Stern (The LEGO Batman Movie, The Watch). The avocado green yolks have been colored using spinach (and food dye, we suspect). It tops a stack of sliced deli ham, American cheese, guacamole, spinach and tomato on Italian-style bread roll.
Picky eaters may not mind that it’s only available in New York and Los Angeles at Subway shops. For those with a snack attack emergency, The Hambulance will make a series of stops around the country this month, including:
- 11/8 Los Angeles
- 11/9 Phoenix
- 11/12 Austin
- 11/14 Houston
- 11/15 New Orleans
- 11/18 Jacksonville
- 11/19 Atlanta
- 11/20 Charlotte
- 11/22-23 NYC
On the bright side, Subway’s verdant concoction isn’t likely to cause riots like Popeye’s chicken sandwich.
