As for Subway, I can identify the restaurants by smell alone from almost a block away, 100% of the time. There's no other smell on this earth quite like it (although I think it's the bread baking, not the pizza). Does anyone else know what I'm taking about here? I have a keen sense of smell, but it's not *that* sensitive.


With no evidence to back it up, I've always believed it's an artificial smell meant to evoke bread baking, not actual bread baking. Something "cooked up" (ha ha) in a lab somewhere off the New Jersey Turnpike.

Well I am!

Picture how disgusting and greasy the video game control sticks are. And how slippery the bathroom doorknobs are because of all the grease on them.

Now, think where all that grease comes from. Eeeeww-whee!

It is the bread baking, but it doesn't smell like good bread baking. It gives off a vaguely chemical odor.

It's the bread.

We were actually talking about this last night, when a Subway commercial came on tv. I think it smells like 7-11.
