With the introduction of the Snack n’ Save menu at Arby’s there’s been an almost Burger King sized amount of items being introduced.  One of the headliners is the value sized (and priced) Mighty Minis sandwich duos.   They come in three different variations known as Original, Spicy, and Crispy Onion in either roast beef or hot turkey. Each Mighty Mini includes two slider sandwiches totaling a price of $2.69.  Small price to pay, but were these minis worth it?

First of all, ordering these from the drive thru was a huge mistake. In my infinite wisdom, I was trying to order two different styles on “one Might Mini” but instead ended up mistakenly purchasing two Mighty Minis (4 small sandwiches) in a complete gaffe of epic proportions.

Regardless, I ended up with a Spicy Turkey Mighty Mini and a Crispy Onion Turkey Mighty Mini.  First up is the Crispy Onion Variety.  Loaded up with fried crispy onions and savory au jus spread, this is the most decadent of the options by Arby’s.  A Mighty Mini set has 500 calories and 23 grams of fat, which could potentially seem like a lot for value sized offering.  But was the flavor worth it?

In a word: yes.  The au jus is thick and creamy, almost like a gravy. Very comfort food esque, especially with the crispy onions on top. I personally love onion straws and onion rings, so their inclusion is always a plus for me.  In this instance they kinda worked because the sauce pretty much drowned out their effectiveness here.  The twin-pack slider buns are warm, fluffy, and very moist, leading to a very luscious taste.

Next up was the Spicy variety.  Loaded with pepper jack cheese (supposedly) and a roasted red jalapeno ranch sauce, this option was set to be a nice flavor trip as well.  With 440 calories and 18 grams of fat, this option isn’t exactly a dieters dream, but nothing too bad.

As you can see, the sandwich was lacking the advertised cheese.  This is a common occurrence you’ll find at QSR’s the first week products are introduced with “complex” items and their intricate toppings.  The sauce was the highlight here and was very zingy.  Nothing to spicy, but provided just enough creamy zest to open your eyes. Who knows, if cheese would have found it’s way on them, it might have been really something to talk about.

The Mighty Minis also come in an original version, but consisting only of meat and bun we decided this wasn’t worth our time.  Check these suckers out, they’re a solid value and are really tasty!
