News: Arby's Testing Hash Brown Sandwich

Arby's is testing a Double Down-style sandwich using their potato cakes (i.e. hash browns) as buns. The new sandwich is part of a value menu test they're calling the "Snack 'n Save" menu. The test has been underway since, at least, January in Evansville, Indiana.

The hash brown sandwich is called the Bacon Cheddar Potato Cake Melt and is simply built with two halves of a slice of cheddar cheese and thick-cut pepper bacon between two Potato Cakes.

The Snack 'n Save menu appears to be aimed at improving Arby's traffic during off-peak hours. Items on the menu range in price from $1 to $2.99 in a Wendy's-like move that goes beyond the $1 price point.

Items featured on the menu included the current and nationally available Chocolate Molten Lava Cake and Snack Size Curly Fries as well as a slew of new items such as the Loaded Baked Potato, Mighty Minis, the Jr. Bacon Cheddar Melt, and the aforementioned Bacon Cheddar Potato Cake Melt.

The new items all look pretty good, especially the hash brown sandwich. Let's hope the menu makes it out of the test.

Arby's declined to comment regarding the Snack 'n Save menu.


  1. As tasty as the Hashbrown sandwich sounds it seems pricy for a dollar considering you can get double cheeseburgers and bacon burgers at other fast food shops.

    Best value on that menu would probably be the bacon beef sandwich although that one is probably $3

  2. I bet the hashbrown sandwich will end up being 2 bucks assuming Arbys, like Mcdonald's, charges a buck for a single hashbrown.

  3. I'd try this in a heartbeat! Mmmm
