With Thanksgiving right around the corner, Arby's has put their seasonal turkey sandwiches back on the menu for a limited time.
They're being marketed as Deep Fried turkey sandwiches and are available in three varieties: Deep Fried Turkey BLT, The Gobbler and Cajun Deep Fried Turkey.
Here are the descriptions from the Arby's website:
Deep Fried Turkey BLT - With crispy Bacon, shredded Lettuce, Sliced Tomatoes, Mayo, Cheddar Cheese and crispy, delicious Deep Fried Turkey, this sandwich is a gift for all the Deep Fried Turkey fans.
The Gobbler - With Cranberry spread over the delicious Deep Fried Turkey, topped with Bacon, Swiss Cheese, Tomato, Mayo and Lettuce, the Gobbler might make you wonder if Thanksgiving should’ve been a month-long celebration.
Cajun Deep Fried Turkey - If you love turkey, you are going to love the Deep Fried turkey. If you love the Deep Fried Turkey, you are going to love the Cajun flavor we added to it. If you love the Cajun flavor then you are going to love that we made a sandwich out of it. And who doesn’t love a sandwich?
I went with the Deep Fried Turkey BLT on this occasion.
Hyped as a BLT, it's really just a turkey club sandwich, which is what Arby's called it last year, The Deep Fried Turkey Club. But what's in a name?.... The marketing is clear, Arby's is pushing the Deep Fried angle.... but it's not quite on the up-and-up, the turkey isn't truly cooked with a deep fry, it's actually oven roasted turkey breast, only put in the fryer for sandwich prep.
So how was the sandwich you ask?
