Breaking News – Subway running short of cucumber

Food RationingFans of the Subway sandwich have been frowning this week with the news the winter cucumber shortage has led to rationing the vegetable.

At Subway Metro on Devon St West, a notice was put in the service window, stating only two cucumber slices will go on six-inch subs instead of three, with five instead of six for foot-longs.

David Herrick, of Subway Restaurant marketing, said all cucumbers used by Subway were grown in New Zealand hot houses.

As there was often a smaller crop in the middle of winter, traditionally the organisation then sourced extra stock from Australia.

“Australia had very heavy rain, so they’ve got no telegraph cucumbers for us,” Mr Herrick said.

And how is this news exactly?

A friend of mine from Henderson went to his local Bond and Bond the other day, but couldn’t buy a new TV because they were out of stock in the model he wanted.
