Because who doesn't love bread?!

No, it isn't exactly good for us...

But who cares when it tastes so damn amazing?

Whether you're tucking into a huge sandwich or wanting something to dip in your winter-warming soup... bread has got your back.

But it's safe to say...

That there is one type of bread that reigns supreme.

The Subway rolls, of course!

Now, we all know and love Subway for being the most trusty sandwich chain in the world.

Founded here in the United States in 1968...

Subway has grown to become one of the most popular fast-food restaurants in the world.

As of October last year, Subway has more than 41,000 locations in more than 100 countries...

Cementing the chain as the go-to for the best sandwiches.

Now, the thing about Subway is that you don't just get an ordinary sandwich.

All of their sandwiches are completely customizable so you can create the most unique snack exactly to your taste.

The choice of fillings and sauces are endless...

But the choices of bread? Well, this is when things get interesting!

Here in the U.S, there is a wide range of bread rolls to pick from...

Including 9-grain wheat, Italian, Italian herbs and cheese, hearty Italian, rye bread, gluten-free bread, 9-grain honey oat, rosemary and sea salt roll, and so many more.

They're all equally as delicious...

But it turns out, the iconic bread rolls of Subway aren't exactly what they seem.

According to Ireland’s highest court, subway rolls aren't considered as bread...

And they have set this in as a law.

Okay, so people aren't exactly shocked...

Because we all know that despite its irresistibility, Subway isn't exactly good for you!

Ireland is a country that is not only known for it's Guinness...

But it's also known for its bread, which is often dubbed as the best bread in the world. So are we really surprised that Ireland has kicked the Subway rolls out of their bread category?

Anyway, the country's Supreme Court has ruled that the starch used in Subway sandwiches is too sugary to meet the definition of "bread."

In deciding whether to give the fast-food chain a tax break for serving a "staple" food item, the 5-judge panel ruled that the bread’s sugar-to-flour content is roughly 5 times too high to qualify, according to the Irish Independent.

It just wouldn't be possible for Subway to not be taxed for their bread.

For a company to be taxed zero percent, under the Value-Added Tax Act of 1972, the weight of sugar and fat in a bread product must not be more than 2 percent of the total weight of flour in the dough.

The dough baked for Subway sandwiches has a sugar content of roughly 10 percent the weight of its flour content...

Which is extremely eye-opening, we must say.

A Subway franchise owner, Bookfinders in Galway, decided to argue the decision, however.

They argued that the restaurant was not required to meet the standard on to-go items such as heated sandwiches, teas and coffees. Bookfinders had demanded a refund for past years’ taxes in an appeal of a 2006 case.

But according to nutrition facts posted by Subway...

A 6-inch white bread roll has 5 grams of sugar — similar to that of an Oreo cookie. Now, that's a lot of sugar!
