Subway Reportedly Hitching Its Wagon To Sriracha’s Star With Test Of “Creamy Sauce”

Everybody loves Sriracha, and by that I of course mean that at least like 37 people in my life have professed an undying, almost unholy affection for the stuff. Which is why it’s kinda surprising that it’s taken a fast food joint this long to introduce the beloved substance to its menu: Subway is reportedly testing a “Creamy Sriracha Sauce” at select locations in California. To the jet! Quickly!

We don’t need the jet just yet (it’s being serviced anyway, soo annoying), as Foodbeast got there first and snapped photographic evidence of the sauce’s arrival. So how does it taste? From the Foodbeast crew:

I ordered a Turkey & Bacon Avocado with Spinach, iceberg lettuce, tomatoes, mustard and the “Creamy Sriracha Sauce.” The latter took on a more subdued color from the original’s bright red, it had a mayo-like consistency and was less sweet and much more spicy. The mayo-ish Sriracha blended exquisitely with the mustard, adding a delightful kick to my so-so Subway sandwich.

For those unfamiliar with the taste sensation that is Sriracha, we can’t quite explain why it’s so massively appealing — it’s smoky yet sweet, hot yet not a fiery explosion of heat on your tongue — but we do know that no one really knows how to pronounce it.

It might also go well with a Cool Ranch Doritos Loco taco. Just sayin’.
