  • The Irish tax law is not undermined by health regulation definitions as they are talking about different things. The tax definition is to differentiate between luxury and staple commodities (the UK has a sugar tax) but you do not mention this when comparing laws. The tax law in Eire is defining staple bread, and non-staple bread, not defining bread.

  • For profit food chains like Subway aren't staple foods that shpuld be tax exempt. Subways bread being legally bread elsewhere than Ireland aside, they are objectively not a staple food, they are a fast-food outlet. A luxury. Why does law ignore basic sense so often? So what if their sandwhiches are bread, and could, maybe considered a staple meal? They are a for-profit, fast food outlet. Not a luxury, should not be exempt. Digusting that subways attempt to skip out on laws cos "its bread" wasn't laughed out of the courts immediately.

  • here in germany, we indeed use a strict definition: "brot" (bread) - "stuten" (sweet yeast bread) - "kuchen" (cake). and sweet yeast bread would never be used in our fast food restaurants for sandwiches, including subway.

  • Big argument with my sons years ago when i suggested that Subway bread was rehydrated dust. I don't like to hold a grudge, but I will make an exception for Subway - I 've given them two extra chances: one store refused to give me more than 2 salad additions - BOYCOTTED; and another store wasn't clear that their bacon was hal'al, minging turkey bacon - BOYCOTTED. I did use to like their jalapeno, surprisingly spicily strong - but you don't get to get jalapeno if you've already got tomato and lettuce in your roll (in some stingy shops). I can only think that Subway is so popular because a lot of people don't like food.
