Quiznos is launching the new Toasty Torpedoes. Inspired by the famous slim and tasty Italian and French baguette sandwiches served in Europe, the sandwiches are prepared on extra-long and extra-slim ciabatta bread and come in a sleeve to make them easy to eat. With more than a foot of flavor and priced at only $4 at participating locations, these new sandwiches aim to set the standard for value, convenience, and taste.

The long, slender Toasty Torpedo sub comes in a specially designed paper sleeve that makes it compact and easy to eat on the go. The original packaging was created to fit the extended sandwich and give consumers a more manageable way to enjoy a sub.

"At over a foot in length, Toasty Torpedoes are truly a culinary innovation," says Chef Zach Calkins, executive chef for Quiznos.

Toasty Torpedoes are available in five varieties, each made individually to order, including:

-- Italian: Pepperoni, spicy capicola, ham, mozzarella cheese, and red wine vinaigrette topped with crisp lettuce and chopped tomatoes

-- Big Kahuna Tuna: Tuna salad, cheddar cheese, sliced banana peppers topped with crisp lettuce, and chopped tomatoes

-- Pesto Turkey: Thinly-sliced oven-roasted turkey, red wine vinaigrette, mozzarella cheese, and basil pesto topped with crisp lettuce and chopped tomatoes

-- Turkey Club: Thinly-sliced oven-roasted turkey, crisp bacon, red wine vinaigrette, mozzarella cheese, and mayo topped with crisp lettuce and chopped tomatoes

-- Beef, Bacon & Cheddar: Thinly-sliced roast beef, crisp bacon, mayo, cheddar cheese, and mustard topped with crisp lettuce and chopped tomatoes
