FAST FOOD NEWS: Arby’s 5 Mega Meat Stack and Cajun Fish Sandwich

Arby's 5 Mega Meat Stack

Arby’s has two new sandwiches.

One is the culinary white flag you’ll wave when you say screw it to your New Year’s resolution to eat healthy. The other is a fish sandwich.

Arby’s new 5 Mega Meat Stack is more like a molehill when one compares it with the chain’s Meat Mountain. The five meats in the stack are: pepper bacon, a buttermilk chicken fillet, pit smoked ham, roast beef, and roast turkey. It also comes with cheddar cheese, shredded iceberg lettuce, tomatoes, mayonnaise, and a star-cut bun.

The stack of meat, cheese, and bread has 900 calories, 47 grams of fat, 15 grams of saturated fat, 1 gram of trans fat, 175 milligrams of cholesterol, 3160 milligrams of sodium, 53 grams of carbohydrates, 4 grams of fiber, 11 grams of sugar, and 65 grams of protein.

Arby's Cajun Fish

Arby’s Cajun Fish Sandwich comes with only one type of meat — a crispy, fried Alaskan Pollock filet. It also comes with shredded lettuce and a zesty Cajun remoulade on a sesame seed bun. The sandwich takes the places of last year’s Nashville Hot Fish Sandwich.

The menu item has 590 calories, 29 grams of fat, 4.5 grams of saturated fat, 0 gram of trans fat, 45 milligrams of cholesterol, 1060 milligrams of sodium, 63 grams of carbohydrates, 3 grams of fiber, 7 grams of sugar, and 20 grams of protein.

Both sandwiches are available for a limited time at participating locations.

One thought to “FAST FOOD NEWS: Arby’s 5 Mega Meat Stack and Cajun Fish Sandwich”

  1. While that sandwich doesn’t altogether bad, it’s a big fat no from me. But the Cajun fish sounds like it could be a great improvement over last year’s. Is it in the 2 for $5?
