Are you a fan of spicy chicken sandwiches? Well, Arby’s has the spiciest one of them all and is daring you to try it out.
- The fast-food chain is releasing the new Diablo Dare Sandwich starting Monday for $5.99. The sandwich comes in two varieties — crispy chicken and smoked brisket, per USA Today.
- The heat on the sandwich comes from five different places — the ghost pepper jack cheese, fiery hot seasoning, fire-roasted jalapenos and Diablo BBQ sauce, all served on a red chipotle bun.
Since this is probably the spiciest chicken sandwich to ever exist, Arby’s is including a free 12-ounce vanilla shake “to cool your mouth down between bites.”
- “This is not a sandwich for the faint of heart,” said Patrick Schwing, chief marketing officer of Arby’s, per CNN. “Everyone in the quick service restaurant industry says they have a spicy option, but our research tells us that consumers are disappointed by fast food claims of spicy.”
- Schwing said that Arby’s took that “as a challenge by making sure all different types of spicy — the hot, the numbing, and the lingering are combined to make the Diablo Dare a true test of how much heat you can handle.”
