Finally - A Toasty Torpedo!

Remember this post? Remember this ad and it's utter brilliance? Please, spend the 32 seconds it takes to watch this - it's worth it!



OK. Laughing are we? Good. Because the real Toasty Torpedo is no laughing matter!

Finally, I got to go to a Quizno's the other day. The nearest location is in Castlegar, which is about a half hour's drive from here. I'd spent the afternoon with my brother & SIL, helping them clean out the garage and making a couple of dump runs. We had to go to Castlegar to return the truck we were borrowing, so we decided on a cheap dinner at Quizno's. I of course wanted a Toasty Torpedo, so I ordered the Turkey Club one. This is it:Sigh...So unlike the picture. Well, nothing ever is, though, right? Anyway, this was puny! And not very satisfying! I came away hungry! Luckily, we went to DQ for a Blizzard afterward, so I wasn't totally starving, but still...The Toasty Torpedo was just flat out disappointing! Boo, hiss!

I still love Quizno's though; I just wouldn't order this again.

Puny? It looks a decent size to me! Actually, the blizzards sound better than the sandwich. Did you know DQ has a blizzard club? They often e-mail me 2-for-1 coupons!

I normally love any kind of turkey club.. so sorry it was dissappointing. A Blizzard would indeed help!

I haven't tried Quiznos yet. I am rather partial to Subway's cold cut trio with everything! The whole footlong of course. :)

yeah, on paper the whole foot long idea is a bargain... But, puny is as puny does.

Shame too, as Quiznos cheapened themselves to compete with Subways $5 footlong. Their "normal" menu is much better than Subway's "normal".

A pity they were disappointing...

Cheers,

I loved the video, especially when the oven says "put it in me" - hysterical!! So sorry that it wasn't what you expected, but it sounds like the blizzard helped to make up for it!

That video is funny! We have a Quizno's about a mile and 1/2 from the house. I never go.

I had one of their $5 foot long subs the other day, maybe a roast beef and cheese. Best value item on the menu, I'd have to say.

No hunger after that!
