Arby's Presents the $10 Meat Mountain Sandwich - August 27, 2014, 08:31 AM

America!





The 'secret' sandwich is stacked with every cold cut in the chain's arsenal. Is it a good deal?.....Arby's is now offering a $10 "Meat Mountain" sandwich that includes every cold cut the fast food joint has to offer.

Yes, it's gross, but here's what we want to know: Is the Meat Mountain worth its mountainous price?

Probably. A price comparison shows that purchasing all of the sandwich ingredients at a grocery store (we used Peapod by Giant to compare) would cost about $9.13 -- a small savings of 87 cents.

Factor in labor and convenience, and it's hard to argue that Arby's isn't giving customers a decent deal.
Here's the breakdown:
2 chicken tenders ($1.00)
1.5 oz. of roast turkey (75 cents)
1.5 oz. of ham (75 cents)
1 slice of Swiss cheese (34 cents)
1.5 oz. of corned beef (74 cents)
1.5 oz. brisket ($1.31)
1.5 oz. of Angus steak ($1.41)
1 slice of cheddar cheese (34 cents)
1.5 oz. roast beef (96 cents)
3 half-strips of bacon ($1.07)
1 bun (46 cents)
Grand total: $9.13.



“Any man who tries to be good all the time is bound to come to ruin among the great number who are not good. Hence a Prince who wants to keep his authority must learn how not to be good, and use that knowledge, or refrain from using it, as necessity requires”.

- Nicolo Machiavelli 1469-1527

I'm guessing at least 1200 calories.

Oh, I think you're undershooting. I'm thinking more in the 3,000-4,000 range.

Just guesses, but some of it is based on what I read their stand alone sandwiches have

2 chicken tenders (240 calories)
1.5 oz. of roast turkey (180)
1.5 oz. of ham (175)
1 slice of Swiss cheese (100)
1.5 oz. of corned beef (200)
1.5 oz. brisket (200)
1.5 oz. of Angus steak (200)
1 slice of cheddar cheese (100)
1.5 oz. roast beef (180)
3 half-strips of bacon (180)
1 bun (130)

That's about 1885.... so yeah I'd say between 1500-2000 is a good guess.


http://cds.arbys.com/pdfs/nutrition/nutrition-info.pdf
3 chicken strips = 350 so 2 should be 240ish, a reg roast beef (3 oz) 360cal so 1.5oz should be 180....(and that is on the HIGH side since the 360 contains 3oz meat PLUS bun.

The roast beef at Arby's doesn't taste good, or "normal"; it's been infused with some salty juice solution that gives it an off-taste. The bun and cheese are bland and generic. Why does anyone go there?

The same reason people eat at ANY fast food chain. They don't have time to make a meal, it's cheap, it's fast and it's easy. I agree it doesn't taste like real sliced roast beef, but it's the same quality as any prepackaged sandwich roast beef, or maybe even better.

Ate there once.
Meat tasted like salted, chewy plastic and had no resilience as you one would expect animal flesh with protein bonds to have.
The cheese was an inorganic shade of florescent orange and waxy.
