This might be the first pumpkin-flavor spotting of the coming fall season. Breadsmith is having a customer appreciation event Saturday that will feature its pumpkin dessert bread.

Jimmy John’s has introduced a 16-inch sandwich. That’s twice the size of its original ones. The 16-inch giant uses French bread to hold any of the favorite or classic choices. The Gargantuan, which features five meats, cheese and veggies, also can be ordered as a 16-incher and comes in at 2,190 calories – your entire daily limit.
