News: Arby's - New House Made Potato Chips

Arby's now offers new, limited-time House Made Chips. They're thick-cut, kettle-fried potato chips made daily in each Arby's restaurant (that serves them). The chips are sprinkled with a Zesty Arby's Sauce Seasoning for a signature Arby's flavor.

Prices for an order should be around $1.79.

I mentioned last month that they were coming in May or June, but it looks like they've come just a bit early.

The move comes as Arby's seeks to better compete with Subway, which they positioned themselves against with their "Slicing Up Freshness" tagline and marketing campaign. Subway offers packaged chips for sides, so having fresh-made chips plays up Arby's freshness.

  2. The Arby's Sauce seasoning just ruins it. I emailed them, basically just told them to put it on the side. Corporate knows all...well, screw 'em. They won't be on the menu next month.

  4. They would actually be pretty awesome if the seasoning were left off. I don't know what moron thought homemade potato chips absolutely needed this.

  6. Disappointed. I ordered some last week. Ended up throwing them in the trash. Some of the chips were shoe leather tough while others were limp.The seasoning was so bad I could not eat them. A waste of money.

  8. They were ok but they would have been much better without the seasoning. The whole idea is suppose to be about freshness and they lose the fresh appeal of homemade chips the minute the seasoning is added. The seasoning makes them taste like every local summer resorts offering of the local favorite in a bag.

    I love them, but limit myself to them. Very fattening.

  10. The chips are the best thing ever. Seasoning is fine. I was surprised by the complaints - must vary by franchise/location. I have gotten them from three different in my area and have no complaints.


    But - what upsets me is that they are NO LONGER ON THE MENU. That is criminal...
