    I always get the Turkey Tom, no cheese, on whole wheat, and I get diarrhea every time I don’t take a Lactaid pill. Just a FYI for the lactose intolerant folks reading this. So beware if you’re lactose sensitive/intolerant. But it IS a tasty sandwich!

    • Wow, not good. I wonder what could be causing that – there is definitely risk for cross-contamination in these environments, but sandwich shops often have allergen protocols that they can easily use. Thanks for the heads up Chelsea!
