Return Of Subway's Footlong Cookie Ranks Just Below Puppies In Survey



No one is saying (well, at least not here) that a footlong chocolate chip cookie is a bad thing. But we didn’t expect it to be just edged out by “puppies” as one of the things that “make Americans happiest,” according to a new survey by Subway to commemorate the footlong cookie’s return.

That item, now available again on menus nationwide, was first unveiled in January, as part of the chain’s Subway's Sidekicks menu of footlong snacks. :30 TV ads promoting the Footlong Cookie’s return have begun running nationally.

Subway recently conducted a nationwide survey, where “70% of respondents said that eating a Footlong Cookie will brighten their day, stacking up just behind the 89% that are tail wagging for puppy cuddles,” per the release. Younger Americans enjoy the footlong cookie even more; 75% of millennials and 77% of Gen Z respondents said the return of the Footlong Cookie will “brighten their day.”



The chain touts that to date it has sold over five million Footlong Cookies since it launched the sweet treat alongside the Cinnabon Footlong Churro and Auntie Anne's Footlong Pretzel.

Last March the sandwich chain made its signature sauces available in grocery stores nationwide, and also introduced a new series of wraps in April, including the  Homestyle Chicken Salad, Honey Mustard Chicken, Turkey, Bacon & Avocado and the Cali Caprese, which contains BelGioioso fresh mozzarella.
