Now, Create Your Own Arby’s And Red Robin Meals At Home

3023_ 594Do you dream of creating the unlimited-steak-fries experience you get at Red Robin at home without so much as peeling a potato? Is the “Horsey Sauce” you get from Arby’s just the right combination of mayo and horseradish sauce that you simply can’t duplicate at home? Good news: no more stealing handfuls of sauce packets. Well, unless you’re cheap.

Yes, you can make your own roast beef sandwiches at home but still drown them in the fast food chain’s signature sauces. Arby’s sauce is their own version of barbecue sauce. The chain’s “Saucepocalypse” ad campaign encourages customers to slather the sauce on everything for some reason.

Such as Red Robin-branded frozen French fries. Arby’s-branded curly fries, of course, have been available in grocery stores for years. The sauce bottles will retail for a suggested price of $2.49 in stores, and a two-bottle gift pack will cost a bit less.

    Meh. If they’re comparably priced to other horseradish and BBQ sauces then I’ll try them, but there are plenty of good ones out there already if you don’t feel like…wait for it….making your own sauces at home.

    But if they charge more because of the brand name recognition, then I hope they fail. Their sauces were nothing remarkable the last times I’ve had them.

    Honestly, I often cringe when a restaurant chain licenses it’s name to a food manufacturer and allows them to slap the restaurant’s name on all kinds of products that are no where near the quality of what you’d get in the actual establishment. Case and point, the Boston Market frozen meals (I believe made by Heinz) that not only taste nothing like Boston Market food, they come in varieties the restaurants don’t even serve! Sure, these restaurants get licensing fees which are fast money, but the damage they can do to their brand is immeasurable. The sauces they may be able to come close to, but have you tried a “TGI Friday’s” frozen appetizer? You’d never set foot in a TGI Friday’s if you bought one and had never been. Yikes!

    That comma needs to be shipped out and a period brought in.

    I immediately added this to my amazon wishlist, and emailed my mom in regards to whether my dad would want some for christmas. she suggested a couple of bottles of the horsey sauce because he isn’t allowed to actually eat at arby’s anymore for his health but he could add a small amount to home cooked beef and not get in trouble with his cardiologist.
    perhaps that’s something arby’s considered in their production of the bottles: people who miss the taste but aren’t permitted to have all the salt and fat that comes in the sandwich itself.
