Cold Fury Fisks a sandwich. I kid you not. An, um, taste:
So ArbyÃ¢€™s has been advo-ing this new sandwich in my area, and it – well, it kind of horrifies me, bottom line. ItÃ¢€™s the new Savory Homestyle Fresh-Cooked Oven Roasted Old Skool GrandmaÃ¢€™s Own Homemade Pot Roast Sandwich Food Product. HereÃ¢€™s the spiel:
Fort Lauderdale, FL (April 18, 2003) – ArbyÃ¢€™s, Inc, d/b/a Triarc Restaurant Group, announced today that the company is introducing a new Homestyle Pot Roast sandwich. In line with ArbyÃ¢€™s tradition of catering to the consumer with discriminating and mature tastes, the Homestyle Pot Roast sandwich is reminiscent of old-fashioned pot roast that mom used to make.
Ã¢€œReminiscent.Ã¢€ Yeah, right. I suppose you could say itÃ¢€™s Ã¢€œreminscentÃ¢€ in the sense that it is in fact made from some sort of meat or meat product. IÃ¢€™m mildly surprised that my mom hasnÃ¢€™t called me in tears yet after seeing this commercial, begging for reassurance that her pot roast was never like this. I know pot roast. IÃ¢€™ve cooked pot roast. You, sir, are no pot roast.
