$2 Sandwiches at 7-11 are back, now including Salads for all you worried about putting in weight after easter. Excludes WA stores
Great! It's time for healthy food. I am going to have the salad and a pack of krispy kreme there.
You read my mind. Have you tried the limited edition Easter Chicken krispy kreme? Its their best yet.
It just too cute to bite…
but filled with gooey creme, though I wish they would not get rid of the chocolate mud cake donuts everytime there's a promotional donut. They're my staple breakfast
Sweet 3 of these sandwiches make for a tasty lunch for six bucks.
Last time they had this promo, my local 7/11 put out all of the cheapest egg sandwiches and didn't put any of the more expensive sandwiches out.
*caged egg sandwiches lol
Who makes the sandwiches ?
I make them jv. ALL of them. What of it?
Do you use gluten free bread ?
Hell no. And you'll find no damn tofu in there neither.
Are 7-11 sandwiches half decent? I just moved into a new place and the kitchen is infested with roaches (as in I kill 40-50 a day despite cleaning the kitchen morning and night with eucalyptus oil) - tempted to buy a whole stack of these and throw them in the freezer until I can prepare food.
The sangers are fine, but very 'vanilla'; so you may wish to customise them a touch prior to eating, i.e. with a sprinkle of your favourite herb, or some freshly cracked pepper, a dash of tobasco sauce, or whatever.
But as for freeze-thawing them; I cannae vouch for the quality of the results of that. I reckon the bread would be OK, but fillings like egg, lettuce, tomato etc.? They're not going to taste nice/ will 'thaw to mush', methinks…
Just thinkin' Passa, your idea of having a stash of sangers in the freezer because there they'll be immune to attack from your unfortunate roach infestation is genius. So building on that awesome idea, you just need to pick the right ingredients (those that freeze-thaw with palatable results), buy a loaf or two of whatever type of bread you really like that also freeze-thaws well, and if you like toasted sandwiches, consider doing that each time as a final step, to render the sanger even nicer. If it's an option.
Some fillings I can think of that would probably freeze-thaw OK, particularly if they were subsequently heated/toasted in a sanger, are almost any type of cheese, canned tuna, 'purees' of stuff like avacado/tomato/etc., pre-cooked (to almost-burnt) diced bacon…
Good luck, that roach problem sounds like a nightmare, but I reckon your 'frozen sanger' idea is a winner, re maintaining some sanity until you can sort the problem out.
A very thoughtful suggestion Knuckles! And great idea.
Not a bad idea to make my own, my problem is I have nowhere for food preparation at the moment (sewage has now entered the kitchen), but I could probably ask a mate if I can prepare a bunch of sandwiches at their place each week. Either way it seems like my best option, from 7-11 or not - I've got access to microwaves at work and uni to defrost.
Holy moly… May I ask why you moved there if it was so disgusting?
@DrStinge: It's a tastefully renovated terrace house - on inspection none of these problems were apparent. Unlike when you're buying a house, renters aren't really able to get building inspections done before signing a contract.
I could go through my legal avenues for recourse, but I run the risk of being forced out when my lease is up after upsetting my agent (if the problems are fixed I may not want to have the disruption of looking for a new place) and they'd certainly decline to provide a reference to me when looking for another place. In Sydney, positive references from old agents are super useful and how I've never had problems finding places. You also have to disclose in applications if you had a dispute with a previous agent/landlord.
Renting just sucks arse in Australia - you have few rights, and the market is stacked against you in a way that you won't really want to use your rights.
@Passa: REA don't care about renters, only the landlords. My advice, document everything, and when they try to evict you after you have complained about the state of the premises, take them to the tribunal. I recently did with my REA for serving an illegal retalitory eviction notice because I requested them to fix an ant infestation in the house, and the tribunal magistrate smashed them!
Surprisingly good……for $2. I wouldn't be paying full price.
Believe me this works.
I'll give that a shot! The roaches have taken control of all my appliances now. I can see them dancing around in my microwave's LED screen as the numbers change. Never seen anything like it.
Though last night the toilet started regurgitating sewage into the kitchen, so the cockie colony has dropped a little in my priority stakes.
Far out Passa, that joint sounds like something out of a horror movie; how did you find yourself there/ can't you move on? I certainly hope you're not actually paying to stay there.
Passa inherited "Joe's Apartment' o_O
I would move out if I were you. Wow.
I think it's a hit and miss. With the ones that contain lettuce, I always check it before I eat it and 100% of the time it looks as though they do not wash it, because there are tiny bugs. This is my experience from the last time they had the $2 specials.
Hmm.. well that just put me off.
How are you killing the 40/50? Not by hand I hope?
Consider paying to have it done by a company that guarantees results, pay once and have them back every week til it sticks~
why the hell do u think eucalyptus oil will get rid of roaches? lol
They are probably gorging themselves on the oil and swimming around in it like pigs in mud. lol
Got laughed at for eating this stuff. Screw them, I say!
I would laugh at you for buying them at full price (only quietly, behind your back, because I have good manners), but at this price I would openly applaud you for buying them.
Accidentally read OP as "Subway". That's disappointing.
Erm… you mistook the word "greenlantern" for the word "Subway"?!?
I read 7-11 as Subway. I read the original post, not the original poster.
WD man can read a blackbaze report but cannot read 'green lantern' correctly. Apart from 'a' they share no letters in common!
Words =/= numbers just like 3.5"=/=2.5"
Hence why I said accidentally.
7/11 deals these past few months have been pretty decent. Buy 1 get 2 free and now this. Good on em!
For real C-bags, and those (essentially) free slurpees 7/11 turned on a couple of months ago were fun for the kids too!
Good on 'em I say also.
Just remember that episode of Futurama where Fry bought a sandwich from a truck stop toilet.
he became really smart and got the girl?
Bread makes you fat.
Depends on the type of bread. Depends on your energy output.
Anything can make you fat.
Fruit can make you fat. Vegetables can make you fat.
Eat too much of anything and you'll be fat.
Not celery. It actually contains less calories than are required to chew/digest it. ERGO, celery cannot make you fat. Pity it's like eating a piece of grass-flavoured chalk.
But no sane person eats celery stalks without peanut butter.
Ah yes, those would "ants on a log" plus the raisins :)
Interesting how you allude specifically to the celery stalks… When my wife first bought celery to cook with here in Oz, I watched in amazement as she carefully chopped off the leaves and washed them, then chucked all the stalks out!
In her country, the only bit considered edible is the leaves; which are used to flavour various concoctions, in the same way as kaffir lime leaves etc. I suppose in countries where there's not plenty of food for all/ there's no welfare etc., the idea of eating sommat that will actually deprive you of more energy than it will give you never made sense…
@GnarlyKnuckles: I'd personally never ate (or considered eating) the leaves until the past year when I was served a salad containing the leaves. They tasted quite nice! Like celery flavoured leaves. I'm not sure what the norm is to be honest.. do people use or throw them out?
My leaves are given to my bunny rabbits. Stalks are of no value to them nutritionally, but they LOVE the leaves. Hence I'm left with all the stalks, which aren't actually too bad. Juicy crisp snacks. Chop them up for salads, chop them into chunks for soups… they're still quite versatile. Love them.
I honestly give no notice to that negative calorie stuff. Unless you're strictly eating celery only and nothing else at all.. then your diet can't be a negative-calorie diet, can it? But if you are quirky enough to try an all-and-only celery diet… you're probably going to feel weak and ill and possibly near death (depending on how determined you are to lose much weight on this celery-only quest) before any major weight loss success story that ends happily can be made of you…
@waterlogged turnip: I thought you were pointing out in the Wiki link that negative calorie foods are a myth. Which they are.
@catbrain: Apparently an ice cold can of diet drink consumes more energy to heat up to body temperature than it contains in joules/calories. But of course that's not a food and certainly not a diet.
@greenpossum: and it's only about 10cals/day. I guess every little bit helps!
They don't taste to fresh, it's still cheaper to make it! Their bred ain't even helgas!
Good on ya Mum!
I don't mean to parrot jv, but what do these normally cost? I don't shop at 7/11 and these things are normally overpriced everywhere else.
Out of the top of my head, anywhere between $4 and $7
^^^ is chuckling at the thought of buying a sandwich "Out of the top of GL's head"…
[I believe you meant "Off the…" GL? ;P]
Lol, yes… busy day with the kids, mentally exhausted by the time I wrote that :)
I have the same issue with egg sandwiches as the only option at local 7/11 - nothing wrong with that but wish there was more variety..
Is this on ?
Been to two and they have no idea about it at all…
Nothing on 7-11 page or their Fb to show them…
yep its on http://www.7eleven.com.au/
yep its there now :)
Got one today (ham cheese tomato) as all the other ones had lettuce so I avoided those.
2 local 7/11's. Both had zero sandwiches delivered today (as at ~ 8:30am).
Well played 7/11. Way to bait me into visiting your store.
I got some, includes the wraps and fruit salad as well.
Weekly clearing out of old sandwiches?
sandwiches are pretty good!
Are the sandwiches 'healthy'?
Just had the chicken and avocado sandwich. Use by was 09/04/15, so I assume it was made yesterday.
It was tasty but extremely salty. My tongue is still zingy from the salt. 25g of fat and 685mg of sodium. About the same as a large packet of chips (150g packet). Hence three sandwiches would get you to your daily recommended sodium limit.
So not healthy.
Thanks! May pass then
Two slices of bread has 200mg sodium, a tablespoon of mayonnaise is another 100mg, the chicken would be another 50+. I'm assuming this sandwich had no cheese or only a very small amount as that would already bump it over the 700 mark? Unless you have high blood pressure, there is nothing wrong with sodium. 700mg of sodium is not a huge amount for a meal either.
No 7-11 in Gladstone, the nearest one is 250km away…
Well sir you've got a long drive ahead!
Thanks OP, $5 for the chicken caesar salad and a 600ml vanilla coke. My nearby 7-11 does a 600ml for $3 with any sandwich / salad.
I like how you pair your salad with a soft drink.
Now you've got me craving for vanilla coke. ;)
Ah forgot the cool bit, it was a Diet vanilla coke!
Can confirm chicken and avo sangga, way too much salt.
Sushi also $2 a roll.
The portions of the salads are minuscule. Wouldn't pay more than $2.
it reminded me of a free sandwiches you get on VA flights, except less soggy.
for $2, its pretty decent
As usual a lot of egg sandwiches but picked up a chicken sandwich and a noodle salad. Thanks for the heads up OP
I went to the Perth CBD store….The counter staff had no idea that the deal even existed. Scanned a Sandwich and it was full price.
Report them !!
Yep, the counter (in Subi) told me that this deal is not for WA :(
Of course not… We're in WA, the only thing you can get here for $2 that is edible is a fredo frog and even then it's gotta be on special :(
Got a few from the Revesby(NSW) store. They had plenty of range to choose from.
The Egg & Lettuce wasnt bad for 2 bucks. Ill grab some each wednesday for sure.
Just got a couple then from North Ryde. The guys were there refilling the shelves with every flavour - lots of stock - sandwiches and salad.
Expiry 9/4, so probably made yesterday. Being refrigerated, the bread doesn't taste that fresh - but the ham&cheese sandwiches were fine value.
Salads looked a bit small for my liking. I can't imagine paying the regular $5 price for them!
I got 3 sandwiches and a salad. Thanks!
Thanks OP, grabbed a Chicken/Avo, Egg&Mayo sandwich, plus a coffee for $5.
Btw, this is at the 7-11 in Brisbane (Cnr of Adelaide and Edward Sts) - had quite a few left!
The one on George St, top of Queen St mall has plenty of salads but less variety of sandwiches than the one on Albert St, middle of Queen St mall.
Just went for a second round, they've restocked at Adelaide St.
Egg & Mayo seems to be my fave so far, like the others have said - the chicken and avocado one is pretty salty!
So the promo is valid for all stores in Australia except WA? So Western Australia is not part of Australia now, eh? No wonder they're talking about secession.
Well it's on again ladies and gentlemen. I saw a new one today, BBQ chicken!
Argh, lucky for you. Shops in Melbourne CBD only have those basic $5 ones on Wednesday.
I've only seen the egg, avacodo and or lettuce. All the other types are not available on Wednesday.
