UPDATE: We’ve got photographic evidence of the Meat Mountain in the wild from one of our intrepid readers. Check it out here.
Like my Uncle Kevin used to say, “if you build it, they will come.” And if you build a mountain out of meat and show people pictures of it, some people are probably going to want to eat it. Hence, the birth of Arby’s new off-menu Meat Mountain offering.
Arby’s wanted to make sure everyone knew it didn’t only sell those roast beef sandwiches slathered in cheese, so it made a poster showcasing a stacked tower of all the other meats on the menu, reports the Washington Post.
Once they built it, the calls started to come.
“People started coming in and asking, ‘Can I have that?’” Christopher Fuller, the company’s vice president of brand and corporate communications told the Post.
The answer is now yes; yes, you can have a $10 pile of meat between two buns, but you’ll have to know to ask for it as it won’t be on the menu.
That mound includes: 2 chicken tenders; 1.5 oz. of roast turkey; 1.5 oz. of ham; 1 slice of Swiss cheese; 1.5 oz. of corned beef; 1.5 oz. brisket; 1.5 oz. of Angus steak; 1 slice of cheddar cheese; 1.5 oz. roast beef and 3 half-strips of bacon.
If any of you strong-hearted readers decides to take on the Meat Mountain, please feel free to send pics to firstname.lastname@example.org, post them on our Facebook page or tweet them to us at @consumerist on Twitter.
