Arby's are secretly testing a Beer Can chicken sandwich made with a can of Miller High Life
Oh wow, Arby's are really on a roll, aren't they?
For the longest time, Arby's were pretty much only known for their roast beef sandwiches, for their weird product placement in the 2017 Chips movie (don't see it, it's terrible), and for Jon Stewart constantly (and hilariously) mocking them on his version of the Daily Show.
But recently, Arby's are slowly making their way back to the fast food map, and although they're not going to overtake Big Mac sales any time soon, they might pick up some new favourites from people who are looking for something different from their fast food sales.
First, we had the duck meat burger, and then the Arbynator was half a pound of beef with some curly fries, with one serving increasing your risk factor for cardiovascular disease by around 40 percent. But check it out, food fans, there's another Arby's sandwich in the works, and like the Arby's burgers before it, there's something rather interesting at play.
This is the Beer Can Chicken sandwich, which has chicken marinated in beer to give it quite an interesting flavour, don't you think? Along with the Chicken Tall Boy, these new Arby's sandwiches are marinated in Miller High Life, but the alcohol is cooked off, so you can drive home afterward without picking up a DUI.
Reportedly from an Arby's spokesperson, the Beer Can Chicken sandwich has "beer-marinated smoked chicken with melted cheddar cheese, crispy onions, pepper bacon, lettuce, tomato and garlic aioli on a toasted specialty roll", which sounds absolutely delicious. But if you want, you can opt for the Tall Boy, which has all of that, plus extra ham!
"Extra ham" are my two favourite words in the dictionary, so I'm all there for it. But if you'd like to sink your teeth into this fast food tag team, then I've got some information you might find rather useful. This is only just a test, much like their Arbynators last year, so it'll only be out in a few specific states.
So where can you find this sandwich? Arby's is currently rolling out these sandwiches in three cities - Minneapolis, Augusta, and Tulsa - where you can pick up one of these sandwiches for $5.49 on its own, while you can get it for $7.49 as part of a meal deal.
If you're in one of those places, then you can head to Arby's for a taste of beer chicken, but you can only do so until December 23 - much like the Arbynator sandwich, so you probably don't have the room for both sandwiches before Christmas. They're pretty hefty, after all.
So there you have it, you guys! December is looking like a month full of delicious treats, but who would have thought back in January that we'd be talking about Arby's burgers at Christmas? I can't wait to enjoy the taste of beer and chicken, which sounds really interesting, don't you think?
