Arby's to Explore New Bizarre Meat Sandwich

Arby's just announced their newest menu item: a venison sandwich, to be tested in six states by the end of the month.

According to the company, the deer meat sandwich will feature "thick-cut venison steak and crispy onions with a berry sauce on a toasted roll."

The venison sandwich is "100% deer meat," with premium cut top and bottom round steaks from the hind quarter of the deer, according to Rob Lynch, Arby’s Brand President & Chief Marketing Officer.

Part of the company's "It's Meat Season" campaign, meant to celebrate the start of hunting season, the sandwich will be tested in select restaurants in Wisconsin, Minnesota, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Tennessee and Georgia.

Lynch said the company sources free-range farmed deer that feed on fresh grass, and he is confident that "deer hunters are going to love this sandwich."
