Subway Launches Footlong Sidekick Desserts From Cinnabon, Auntie Anne's


Just in time for the big game, Subway has added a new line of desserts to its menu -- and of course they’re all footlongs.

Subway is serving Sidekicks, footlong desserts, available i- store. In addition to the Sidekick footlong version of the chocolate chip cookie (the chain’s longtime lone sweet), Subway has added two offerings that are collaborations with dessert-only QSRs: Cinnabon and Auntie Anne’s pretzels for the new offerings.

The Cinnabon Footlong Churro is now available for $2, and served warm with Cinnabon’s well-known cinnamon and sugar mixture.

For $3, customer can order the Auntie Anne's Footlong Pretzel, which “reimagines Auntie Anne's buttery and salty classic, served with a side of Subway's Honey Mustard,” according to the release.



The Footlong Chocolate Chip Cookie, which made previous appearances for National Cookie day in 2022 and 2023, has returned nationwide for $5.

"The introduction of Sidekicks builds on six decades of equity and expertise in all things footlong," said Douglas Fry, president of Subway North America in the release. "This whole new category on our menu offers Subway fans something they can't get anywhere else and kicks off a year of culinary innovation and … new menu items.”

The new dessert menu follows the chain’s overhaul, which began in 2021 with its ingredients and led to the instillation of meat slicers in over 20,000 locations, at an estimated cost of $80 million.

Focus Foods is the parent company of both Cinnabon and Auntie Anne’s, as well as Carvel, Jamba and Schlotzsky’s, among others.
