The latest offering from BK is an extension of that idea with the introduction of new Flamin’ Hot Mac n’ Cheetos.Burger King describes new Flamin’ Hot Mac n’ Cheetos like this:

Thanks to GrubGrade reader Bryce who sent over a picture of new Arbynator sandwiches from Arby’s. The new menu item was spotted at an Arby’s in Holland, Michigan. From what I can tell from the menu board pic, the Arbynator is a roast beef sandwich topped with Curly Fries, cheddar cheese sauce, Red Ranch, and possibly mayo? on a sesame seed bun. Just like the original Roast Beef sandwich, the Arbynator comes in three sizes… the Classic, the Double, and the Half Pound. We’ll keep you posted when this sandwich gets a wide release.Update 12/7/17:
Here’s the official ingredients rundown for the Arbynator
- Roast Beef
- Curly Fries
- Cheddar Sauce
- Arby’s Sauce
- Horsey Sauce
