This month’s Style in the City features a special treat. One of my personal favorite sandwich shops : Potbelly is introducing a fun new style of sandwiches called the ‘FLATS’. I was recently invited to it’s ‘First Taste’ event and it was a delectable evening. It was a whole new way to Potbelly. This was a radical event. I mean these FLATS are 90 calories less than Potbelly Originals. You can taste the flavorful ingredients more with their deliciously thin multi-grain bread and also cut down the carbs. It requires an outfit that is equally fun and comfortable enough to allow you to feast on all the flavorful FLATS. I opted for some cool boyfriend jeans paired with a classic white tee and topped the look with a trendy sequin jacket.Upon arriving, everybody was greeted with yummy and refreshing Raspeberry Lemonade (coming this Summer!!). Followed by a wide variety of scrumptious FLATS for everybody to sample in flavors like Mediterranean, Wreck, Italian, Grilled Chicken and Cheddar or Turkey. I devoured the Mediterranean while munching on some crunchy barbeque flavored PopChips. If you have never had PopChips, I recommend you check them out. They have no preservatives like hydrogenated oils or MSG. They were a perfect complement to the FLATs. All the guests were also asked to participate in a fun contest of taking a ‘Sandwich selfie’ and sharing it on Twitter with the #FlattenedByFlavor for a chance to win a $50 gift card to Potbelly. Here is mine – sad that my yummy FLAT Mediterranean sandwich was all done (Being a vegetarian, my options were limited). But, the good folks at Potbelly specially made me a hot and fresh vegetarian Mushroom Melt FLATS right away. That made my already full belly even happier.My talented blogger friend Laura turned out to be the lucky winner and we celebrated her win by enjoying even more tasty FLATS and PopChips. Be sure to check out her recap of the fun event on her blog : Wits and Pieces.
We left the fun evening with huge gift bags generously filled with a dozen mini chocolate chip oatmeal cookies, hot peppers, a t-shirt, a button and other fun things. Thank-you Potbelly & PopChips.Flats will be available here at your neighborhood Potbelly from Tuesday, May 6th onwards. Go on and try your favorite sandwich on the new Flats. Till then check out the Potbelly menu and let me know which sandwich you are looking forward to getting #FlattenedByFlavor!
