Q: A Subway franchisee in Ireland claimed its sandwiches fell under the category of a “staple food,” which meant they were exempt from the country’s value-added tax. In settling the dispute, what did Ireland’s Supreme Court determine about Subway’s food?

Select your answer:
A. Subway’s bread falls under the “staple food” category, but the sandwich toppings do not
B. Since Subway’s sandwiches are heated, they don’t count under the staple food category
C. Subway’s bread contains too much sugar to be legally defined as bread in Ireland
D. Subway’s sandwiches are too high in calories to fall under the “staple food” category
