At long last, a sandwich that will give you an entire day's worth of calories all by itself. 

Jimmy John's has gone from "freaky fast" to flat out freaky by unveiling this week a new menu item that is 16 inches long and packs a serious caloric punch. 

The GIANT is now available in all Jimmy John's French bread sandwich options, but not only is it twice the length of a regular eight-inch sub, it also has double the meat and toppings, according to Thrillist
