Arby’s has been consistently pretty good in recent years with their limited time only offerings. Ever since the King’s Hawaiian bun was introduced to the menu back in 2013, there has been a steady flow of more hits than misses. The latest new sandwiches feature the aforementioned King’s Hawaiian bun, but the newest x-factor ingredient is brown sugar bacon. There’s a trio of sandwiches to kick off the new bacon… the Brown Sugar Bacon BLT, the Brown Sugar Bacon & Roast Beef, and the Brown Sugar Bacon & Pit Smoked Ham. I haven’t tackled ham at Arby’s in a while so I decided to grab the Brown Sugar Bacon & Pit Smoked Ham Sandwich for a GrubGrade review.
Arby’s describes their new Brown Sugar Bacon & Pit Smoked Ham Sandwich like this:
We glazed our thick-cut bacon with brown sugar and paired it with pit-smoked ham on a King’s Hawaiian® bun to create this smoky and sweet sandwich.
McDonald’s is currently promoting a summer long Double Cheeseburger and small fries deal for $2.50. If you’re lucky enough to be at a participating location, you might come across the new OREO Frappé. I stumbled upon the OREO Frappé at my local McDonald’s in Maryland and it was priced at $2.89.
Described by McDonald’s like this… “A refreshing sweet treat made from mocha, a hint of coffee and Oreo cookie pieces. Blended with ice then hand topped with whipped cream and a few more Oreo cookie pieces for good measure.” The 690-calorie (medium) drink can be found on the national McDonald’s website menu so it looks like the national roll-out is starting.

These trio of sandwiches are highlighted by King’s Hawaiian buns and thick-cut bacon sprinkled with brown sugar to give it a sweet and savory glaze. Here’s the lineup:
Brown Sugar Bacon BLT: The BLT called; it wants more bacon. Three strips of brown sugar bacon layered with three more strips of pepper bacon? That’s six strips of bacon. We did the math.

We’ll put all y’all on a sweet King’s Hawaiian® bun. 600 calories, 28 grams of fat, 10 grams of saturated fat, 860 milligrams of sodium, 22 grams of protein
