$100 Question: Favorite Wacky Sandwich?

After challenging our chefs to come up with the ultimate sandwich and then introducing our new artisan sandwich menu, we’ve certainly been doing a lot of thinking about sandwiches. So, for our February giveaway, we want to ask, what’s your favorite wacky sandwich? Whether you mix peanut butter and onions, mayonnaise and strawberry jam or tuna fish and ketchup, we’d love to hear about it!

Then leave your answer to this month’s question in the comment section on our blog page. ONE winner will be picked at random on March 1st 2012. Good luck!

Look for great savings and everyday low prices on your favorite products throughout our February circular.

An Extreme Tuna Makeover: Our Ahi Tuna Melt

Friday (February 3rd), we’ll be introducing our Ahi Tuna Melt:

Swimmingly Fresh

Tuna salad gets a delicious upgrade with garlic-crusted, seared ahi tuna, melted cheddar, tomato, red onion, and garlic aioli. Our Ahi Tuna Melt will change the way you think about this classic deli sandwich.

Enjoy the Ahi Tuna Melt for $7.99*

*Includes side of Native Sun Macaroni Salad

Note: The Ahi Tuna Melt will be served on ciabatta bread instead of focaccia bread because the focaccia bread previously used on this sandwich no longer meets our standards. We will be replacing the ciabatta bread with a new focaccia recipe as we begin the full menu roll out during the week of February 6, 2012.
