Subway is taking its signature footlong sub sandwiches to a new level with the debut of the footlong cookie in celebration of National Cookie Day on Dec. 4., 2022. The footlong cookies range from sweet to savory, and one of them has a completely unexpected ingredient (pickles!). Footlong cookies will be available for one day and in one location only.

Inspired by the Subway Series signature subs, cookie lovers can sink their teeth into four limited-edition footlong flavors exclusively at Cookieway, the brand’s pop-up restaurant that only serves cookies.
Fun fact: Subway sells more freshly-baked cookies than any other restaurant company in the United States.
On Sunday, Dec. 4, the Subway restaurant in Calle Ocho in Miami’s Little Havana neighborhood will become a cookie-only pop-up. Cookieway will be open to guests from 1-5 p.m. at 1575 SW 8th Street, with a footlong cookie menu that includes:
The Subway Cookie Club
Inspired by the use of proteins on Subway’s #11, the Subway Cookie Club is a stack of cookies, starting with a Double Chocolate cookie base and vanilla frosting. Next comes Chocolate Chip, White Chocolate Macadamia, and Raspberry Cheesecake cookie chunks, rainbow sprinkles, and chocolate and raspberry sauce.
Taking its cue from south-of-the-border flavors of the #7 Subway sub, the MexiCali cookie is an assemblage of a vanilla sugar cookie, dulce de leche, mole, and corn nuts, all drizzled with white chocolate sauce. Ground coffee, Tajín, and espresso chips are added as a final flourish.
Modeled after Subway’s The Monster #3, the beastly Double Chocolate cookie includes a mountain of peanut butter, the indulgence of chopped peanut butter cups, Reese’s pieces, butterscotch chips, and the crunch of pretzels decorated liberally with chocolate and white chocolate sauce.
The Great Pickle
Adventurous? Go for the sweet-and-savory cookie that is based on The Great Garlic #8 sub. It all starts with a vanilla sugar cookie mounded with peanut butter, then topped it with marshmallow crème, potato chips, crumbled bacon, and (here’s the kicker) dill pickles.
“Bringing together two of Subway’s most iconic menu items — footlong subs and Subway cookies – was the only way we could top our celebration of National Cookie Day last year when we opened the first Cookieway,” said Paul Fabre, senior vice president of Culinary and Innovation at Subway. “We wanted to give Subway fans even more cookie to love, with flavors and ingredients that are just as craveable as the sandwiches they’re inspired by.”
Footlong cookies will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis in exchange for a donation to the Subway Cares Foundation, a non-profit organization which provides grants to organizations around the world that align with its mission to provide youth greater access to nutritious food, tuition assistance for university and vocational education, and growth and leadership opportunities.
If you can’t make it to Cookieway in person, Subway also announced its six- and 12-pack Cookie Bundles will be available at Subways nationwide. They will also offer a special cookie deal of $2 off a footlong sub when adding a cookie to orders placed on the Subway app or Subway.com. The offer is available exclusively to guests with a Subway account who have opted into email. New accounts must opt into email 72 hours in advance to receive the offer.
