Olive Garden Releases Breadstick Sandwiches

Olive Garden has capitalized on the popularity of their breadsticks and launched two new Signature Breadstick Sandwiches featuring a shorter but slightly wider breadstick bun.

The Signature Breadstick Sandwiches are offered as part of a lunch combo, which comes with garlic Parmesan fries, unlimited breadsticks (because one breadstick bun is just not enough), and a choice of soup or salad.

Starting at $7.99 for the combo, the Signature Breadstick Chicken Parmigiana Sandwich comes with a fried Parmesan-breaded chicken breast that's topped with Italian cheese and marinara sauce inside the new breadstick bun.
