RE: When K-mart sold sub's
Yup, that describes the taste I remember. Meat cut so thin it had one side, with a smathering of wilted,shreadded lettuce,overrripe and impossibly thin slices of tomato stuck together with processed, American cheese slices that had melted slightly at room temperature to a goo. All marinating together in a condensation filled plastic bag at room temperature. Once the marinading process was complete by the evening, they turned on the blue(Goo?) light and sold them 3 for a dollar to get rid of them. "Hello Shoppers..."
Geesh,I could hardly wait to find one waiting for me in the morning for my lunch. Down here, they must have been shorting us. Ours only had pickles. Anyone remember the equally disgusting thing they called a ham sandwich also packed in bags using a small,sweaty,round roll with the same ingredients except the tomato? Those went 5/$1 in the late evening. They used to have these clips like you typically see holding potato chip bags that they clipped these cloudy bags of mush to. Maybe it was different during the day, but when our family went there in the evening, this is what was there and they sold them out in the latter evening.
If you're reading this Tara, then you have to remember this from the K-mart at Bird and Galloway behind and accross the isle from the service desk where they sold the Icee's and Popcorn.
