FOX NEWS - Arby’s is best known for its sliced roast beef but this fall, the chain is taking its “we have the meats slogan” pretty seriously.
On Tuesday, the Atlanta-based company announced that it will begin testing venison (that’s deer meat for all the non-hunters out there) sandwiches in select markets at the end of October.
The new sandwich is a thick-cut venison steak made from top and bottom round steaks from the hind quarter of the deer, topped with crispy onions and a sweet-tart berry sauce.
Arby’s says it’s sourcing the new meat offering from free-range farmed deer that feed on grass, and Rob Lynch, Arby’s Brand President & Chief Marketing Officer, says he is confident that "deer hunters are going to love this sandwich."
On Twitter, the announcement gave way to plenty of surprised reactions-- plus some very clever puns-- on the new offering.
