Arby’s Introduces Sliders That We Will Call Meat Molehills

sliders_arbysSure, you can go to Arby’s and order the off-menu Meat Mountain, which comes in at an estimated 1,275 calories and will probably attract some attention wherever you eat it. Or you could sample the meats available from Arby’s in a more modest way: by trying the chain’s new selection of petite “sliders,” or mini sandwiches that max out at 290 calories.

They are probably not meant to be served as they are in the picture, on a tray as a sort of meat tasting for only one person. In the real world outside of fast food menus, one sandwich would probably make a fine meal. Maybe with a small side of fries.

All of the sandwiches are on mini soft buns, and all of the sliders feature melted Swiss cheese slices, unless you aren’t into that. The varieties include:

  • Chicken ‘n Cheese Slider (the “chicken” here is a breaded chicken tender)
  • Corned Beef ‘n Cheese Slider
  • Jalapeño Roast Beef Slider
  • Roast Beef ‘n Cheese Slider
  • Ham ‘n Cheese Slider

Also, we learned something important when looking up these sandwich varieties: Arby’s calls their side items “friends of meat.”


Why is there not a promotional comic book for kids called Captain Arby and the Friends of Meat yet?
