GG Video: Where did you go Arby’s Chicken Salad Sandwich?

One of the best chicken salad sandwiches has gone missing.  The Pecan Chicken Salad Sandwich, from the Market Fresh line of sandwiches at Arby’s, is no longer on the menu.  I guess this was done to make room for more roast beef with the Roastburgers.  I’m sure this pains maybe 3% of the GrubGrade audience but it’s a sad day for me.  It’s no longer on the Arby’s website menu and I tried 3 locations recently and they are no longer carrying it.  This is terrible news.

    Aw man, that is a shame. That was my fav thing on their menu as well, I loved that it had red grapes in it.

    This is a sad day. The Pecan Chicken Salad Sandwich along with a Jamocha Shake was my favorite meal at Arby’s. I may have to start a petition…

    A true classic. Excellent production value. I am so glad you used 16:9 format. I don’t think you could of captured the essence of the Pecan Chicken Salad sandwich in 4:3.

    I shed a tear.

    Sorry…”could have”

  6. Hilarious video. Ryan, you should have enough pull by now that they will automatically add it back? Arby’s needs to show some respect.

    bummer. i feel your pain man, they got rid of my wraps too. combined with them forgetting my fries last time i got drive thru, i might just quit going there… except i really like the jalapeno poppers, dammit.

  8. Chaz says:

    Too bad. Arby’s used to have Onion Petals too but they aren’t on the menu anymore either. Great video. 🙂

    I think I cried a little.

    That’s too bad. My mom’s favorite meal from Arby’s was the same as Heather’s above.

    I am in Southern California and my local arbys still has this sandwhich.

    At least it did as of 4/2/2009. That was the last time i got the infamous chicken salad and mozzerella sticks w/ ranch.

    I would say that it has been on their menu for at least 3-4 weeks now. I remember when i first saw it i kinda freaked out.

    The next time i went to arbys i was planning on going with the Beef n Cheddar, seeing as though i thought the chicken salad was gone.

    then booooom, there it was.

    I am so so so sorry. I know how much the chicken salad meant to you, because it meant that much to me too. I know you are sad right now Ryan, but you need to take that sadness, wrap it up tightly in pain and betrayal and give birth to a rage baby. You need to nurture and coddle that rage baby until it turns into an unstoppable thing of pure evil. Then you must DEMAND they bring it back! CODDLE YOUR RAGE BABY!!

  13. Kimmie says:

    We still have the chicken salad in the south. As far as I know there are no plans of getting rid of it.

  14. Joff says:

    Just be thankful you have an Arby’s full stop. We don’t in the UK, not even a Taco Bell!

    • Ryan says:

      @ Joff…hehe, yeah I’m thankful…spoiled by all the options here too. The UK would probably be like being on Survivor for me. I plan to visit some day and tough it out though.

  15. brad says:

    fucking love that video, and love your hat at the end even more lol

  16. Juana says:

    we still have the pecan sandwich
    at least in california

  17. DAF says:

    I agree with Heather…it’s also good with a cool glass of pino grigio

  18. Sheila says:

    I have not been back to Arby’s since they dropped the chicken salad sandwich. Boycott!!!

    ‘Twas a sad sad moment… Late summer evening…I was lying in bed with my fellow CSS Lover. He was so tired he couldn’t keep his eyes open, he remembered he had yet to eat that day. I, too, was ravenous. I ran thru a list of a number of places I could go. Suddenly, he mentioned the Arby’s MarketFresh Chicken Salad Sandwich…cool, big white chucks of chicken, huge juicy grapes, crunchy pecans, greengreen lettuce, fresh soft honeywheatberry bread… Ambrosia! We would be greek lovers feeding each other grapes as the fan turned slowly overhead. A kiss, the car starting, the Arby’s drivethru….”Uh, they don’t have that anymore. Sorry.” What!!! Why??? Are you sure? They were sure. Discontinued. Gone. Forever. Farewell. . .

    I am so bummed, this was the best sandwich out there for fast food. Guess it is time to brown bag it again.

  21. susanna says:

    that music..nice editing! farewell to that sammich…kinda like their home style fries 🙁

  22. Dan says:

    They still have it here. I’ll mail you one. 😛

  23. Keenius says:

    Wish they bring back the cheesecake bites 🙁 tried the jalapeno bites is so nasty and wish they have the price down again

  24. Just came back to the states to find this out but had to check the internet to confirm it. It is a sad day! 🙁

  25. Sarah Latschkowski says:

    Worst day ever I just found oit that the chicken ad sandwhich from Arby’s is discontinued. I feel empty. Because I’m craving a damn arbys chicken salad sandwhich. I will have to attempt this on my own. Pray for me.

  26. Don says:

    The only new thing worth eating at Arby’s in years and they already dropped it. Best sandwhich of any fast food place. Now I have no reason to ever go back.
