At the end of last year, we asked our readers to vote for the worst-looking product from Takeaway Truth in 2014: that is, the fast food item that least resembled its advertised likeness. There were several strong contenders but in the end there could only be one “winner”. Drum roll, please…

Subway Bacon, Poached Egg and Cheese Breakfast Sub

Yeah, we can’t really argue with the people on this one. The above abomination garnered over 30 per cent of the total vote. Click here for the original article.

The KFC Mighty Burger was only two per cent behind (it was a neck-to-neck race to the finish). KFC’s Nacho Box also walked away with a hefty chunk of the vote. You can see how the rest of the finalists fared in the below list:

Which fast food franchise or menu item would you like us to tackle this year? Let us know in the comments section below.


  • Subway’s brekky stuff has been pretty yuck whenever I’ve had it. Never looked like that but the first time I had it, the eggs were pre-poached and just warmed up (a little bit) and the ham/bacon was warm at best, to the point where I got half way and wasn’t sure if finishing it was a healthy idea.

  • The good thing about Subway is that they don’t FORCE you to have their horribad breakfast crap during breakfast hours. You can still grab an infinitely better regular sub.
