Arby’s Just Brought Back Brown Sugar Bacon And Made It 3x Thicker

A while back Arby’s introduced brown sugar bacon to their sandwiches. Essentially candied bacon, the limited-time ingredient feature crispy strips of bacon covered in brown sugar and cooked until sweet and salty come together in the ultimate meet cute.

Now, the fast food sandwich chain is bringing back the sugar-covered bacon, albeit with a slight change. The new candied bacon strips will be three times thicker than before.

Boasting a quarter of an inch in girth, the slabs of pork are featured on four Arby’s sandwiches that form the Triple Thick Lineup: Triple Thick Brown Sugar Bacon Roast Beef, Triple Thick Brown Sugar Bacon Turkey, Triple Thick Brown Sugar Bacon BLT, Triple Thick Brown Sugar Bacon Club.

What a sweet and salty mouthful, right?

The Triple Thick Brown Sugar Bacon BLT itself boasts five slices of the limited time bacon. Expect to only see the sweet and thick bacon to grace participating Arby’s locations for a limited time, most likely through the end of July.

Arby’s also couldn’t help but troll vegetarians by reopening their Vegetarian Support Hotline.

Wendy’s $4 Value Meal Gets A New Chicken Sandwich

A while back, Wendy’s introduced the 4 for $4 value meal. For diners looking for something filling, this $4 meal gets you fries, a Jr. Bacon Cheeseburger, chicken nuggets and a drink.

Now, the fast food chain is adding a new option to the menu: a Crispy Chicken BLT sandwich. Patrons can choose to get the sandwich instead of the regular cheeseburger.

Wendy’s chicken sandwich is made with a crispy patty of all-white meat chicken. It’s also stacked with two pieces of Applewood smoked bacon, lettuce, tomato, a slice of American cheese and mayo.

The only catch is you’ll have to get commit to all four items to get the value. Still, not bad for under $5.

Taco Bell Uses Shrink Ray to Test $1 Crunchwrap Sliders


Before the gimmicks, before Doritos, before taco waffles, there was Taco Bell’s Crunchwrap: a humble bit of fast food ingenuity, that combined everything decent about fake Mexican food into one neat, catchily named package. So, yes, you can say we’re a little excited about this.

Out in Ohio, Taco Bell is currently testing — has been testing for a least a month now — a new line of mini Crunchwraps they’re calling Crunchwrap Sliders, because screw real food categories, right? Like the original Crunchwrap, these guys take a firm, folded tortilla and stuffed it with your choice of beef and cheddar, barbecue chipotle chicken, or bacon, lettuce, and tomato fillings, but in a size barely larger than an open adult palm. Instead of the original taco shell round, the sliders also get their crunch from a nice helping of Fritos chips, presumably for size reasons, but maybe also because the tiny corn curls were feeling left out of big brother Doritos’ party.

Either way, if you’re in the area, you can grab yours for just $1, or all three for less than a cost of a regular Crunchwrap (about $3.29).
