Tasty Thursday-Schlotzsky's Bunker Hill

Disclosure-I was invited to a preview event to sample menu.  All opinions are my own based on my experience.
Believe it or not, I had never been into a Schlotzsky's.  I thought they made Italian poyboys/sandwiches or that it was a high end Subway.  But today I found out that it is neither. 
There were so many choices to choose from: sandwiches, muffalotza, pizza, and salads.  I ended up picking the #2-Smoked Turkey Sandwich that came with a pickle, chips, and a drink.

(Smoked Turkey Breast Sandwich - Smoked turkey breast and light mayonnaise with lettuce and tomato on toasted Sourdough bread. Contains egg, milk, soybeans and wheat.)

The sandwich was really good.  The bread was amazing.  They have a bakery and bake their bread fresh, everyday!  For those that are asking do they have GLUTEN free options, headquarters is working on a bread formula now, release date is not final as it is in the testing phase.  But you can always ask for no bread, make it a wrap, or any way you want-customize.  Online you can also find a Schlotzsky's Allergen Scorecard that tells you what ingredients each menu item has or just ask your cashier.

But what makes this Schlotzsky's different, is that they have Carvel ice cream!!!!!!

The ice cream is to die for.  Soft serve ice cream.  You can get Vanilla, Chocolate, or twist.  Then you get to top it at the topping station with sprinkles, m&m's, oreos, fudge and/or caramel. They also have cookies, Cinnabon...mmmmmm, and shakes.

Kids menu is available for only $3.99 with different selections like sandwiches and pizza, a side item and a drink.

Today, May 9 is this store's GRAND OPENING and they will be having a Spin the Wheel.
