FAST FOOD NEWS: Arby’s Smoked Turkey Leg

Arby s Smoked Turkey Leg

It appears there are Games of Throne fans at Arby’s. And as you can tell by the first sentence, I do not follow the show. But I’ve seen enough “Winter is coming” references on social media to know what Arby’s is doing in its Smoked Turkey Leg promo photo above.

The limited time only menu item honoring the HBO show is seasoned with salt and brown sugar, smoked, and then slow-roasted. Not only is it available for a limited time, it’s also obtainable at only nine locations around the country, staring on Sunday, August 27.

Chick fil A Hash Brown Scramble Burrito + Bowl

Chick-fil-A has a new entree to start your day. Oh wow. That rhymed!

The Hash Brown Scramble is the chain’s first breakfast bowl and it features Chick-fil-A’s signature “tot” style hash browns, scrambled eggs, a Monterey Jack and cheddar cheese blend, and your choice of sliced chicken nuggets or sausage. It’s also served with a jalapeño salsa.

If you’re a fan of Chick-fil-A’s current Breakfast Burrito, I have bad news for you. The Hash Brown Scramble is also available as a burrito and is replacing your beloved Breakfast Burrito.

The breakfast menu item has 450 calories and 30 grams of protein when made with nuggets. The bowl and burrito start at $3.49.
