You know a sandwich from Arby’s is hot when it comes with a free drink to cool you down!

Now, we understand that spicy food isn’t for everyone. Sometimes, there’s only so much milk or water a person can drink to cease burning. But for some, painfully hot food brings a smile to their face! So Outsiders, which one are you?

If you happen to enjoy burning your tongue off for a meal, then Arby’s invented a few new sandwiches just for you. On Monday, the fast-food restaurant announced the arrival of the “Diablo Dare.” This is a spicy sandwich (as well as a brisket option) that is bound to make its challenger crave something cold. The new options feature five blazing elements. These include Pepper Jack cheese made with ghost peppers, a bun infused with chili flakes, and the signature Diablo BBQ sauce with a quartet of spicy chiles. Too much? Because Arby’s has it all!

Many know that the best way to fight off blazing hot food is by washing it down with something dairy. Thankfully, Arby’s is offering a free vanilla milkshake with every Diablo order.

Sounds like a smart marketing move. If someone decides the sandwich isn’t for them, they can come back for just a milkshake.

So, what do you think, Outsiders? Any plans to accept the challenge?

Arby’s Temporarily Releases Own Alcohol

Whether you just came from a night of drinking or need a place to pre-game, now you can at Arby’s. Well, you can order it ahead and then pre-game or enjoy a night out. Or be glad you didn’t.

Now, you can enjoy some delicious curly or crinkly fries with Arby’s French fry-flavored vodka. We aren’t kidding. Late last year, the fast-food restaurant released two liquors for a limited time. The drinks first went out on November 18th. The second round was released on November 22nd. Sounds like an interesting addition to the Thanksgiving table.

The Crinkly and Curly Fry Vodkas came from potatoes and are 80 proof. They are available to purchase at and run at a decent price of $59.99.

Patrick Schwing, Arby’s chief marketing officer, released a statement on Yahoo News: “Arby’s recently added a Crinkle-cut option to accompany our iconic Curly Fries, providing another choice for fry-lovers. Though we’ve mastered the art of drive-thru fries, we wanted to take it one step further – by making them 80-proof. Being a potato-based liquor, this limited-edition vodka is infused with crinkle and curly fry flavor so Arby’s fans can enjoy our menu from bag to bottle.”

Per a survey on Twitter, many were in disbelief that the alcoholic beverage was a real thing. This is completely understandable.
