So I stopped into a Subway in San Marcos to get a $5 sub. They asked if I wanted it toasted to which I replied the same way I always do “Yes.” When they went to ring up my sub they said the total was $5.44. Now I have been buying subs at Subway for a while and wondered where the 44¢ came from. When I asked they said it was because I got my sub toasted. Apparently in California if you get your sub toasted they consider it a ‘hot food’ item which is subject to taxation. When I complained they took off the toasting tax and I paid my $5 and left. Needless to say I will not be having my subs toasted without asking first if there is a tax on it!
