Gluten Free Sunday: Jimmy Johns "Unwich"
This afternoon we were out running errands today, and I was complaining that I was hungry but there was no fast food I could eat (not literally true, but I was working the sympathy vote today). Jimmy John's happened to share the parking lot with Staples - and I remarked that if I could eat bread, a Jimmy John's sandwich would be pretty good... [get out the violins]. My smarty pants hubby said, let's just pop our heads in to see if they have gluten-free bread, what's it going to hurt to ask? [yeah, the skeptic in me would've bet $20 they didn't have anything for me]
And yes, I was correct, they don't have gluten-free bread. But they do have the "Un-wich". What's that you ask? It's any one of their sandwiches, minus the bread, wrapped in leaves of iceberg lettuce like a burrito. Ok, I ♥ iceberg lettuce - especially when it isn't cut up in tiny strips - and I could order any of their sandwiches this way? SOLD!
It was pretty good. I got my lunchtime "fuel" fix and I'm pretty excited about doing it again. It was a nice alternative to the not-so-good gluten-free bread that I usually eat sandwiches on. So yay! for my hubby who doesn't treat me like a freak, and yay! for Jimmy John's opening up a new avenue for fast food for me!
* if you guessed because there is cheese on it, you are correct.
