I’ve been seeing the commercials advertising the new McDonald’s Mighty Wings and Arby’s Smokehouse Brisket Sandwich and both looked soooo good I had to sample them! So for lunch today my Mom and Dad wanted to try them so I went out and bought Mom the Arby’s Smokehouse Brisket Sandwich and Dad the McDonald’s Mighty Wings, and I got a small sample of both.

 

Arbys Smoke House McDs Wings 002

Start with the McDonald’s Mighty Wings; McD’s got their self a winner with these wings! Nice breading and a great spicy taste. The wings were nice size and very meaty and you have a choice of a variety of dipping sauces.

 

Nutritional Info – McDonald’s Mighty Wings – 3-piece – 3.3 oz (94g)

Arbys Smoke House McDs Wings 004

Next the Arby’s Smokehouse Brisket Sandwich; and another winner! Not only does this one look mouth-watering on TV but looks even better when buy one. The brisket is smoked for 13 hours making it nice and tender. Arby’s Smokehouse Brisket is piled high with slow-smoked beef brisket, topped with smoked Gouda cheese, crispy onions, BBQ sauce and mayo, and served on a toasted, bakery-style bun. I couldn’t believe how good it was! It was tender and went great with the BBQ sauce and Gouda which just melted in your mouth, and I love Gouda Cheese! But the bad part about it is the calories and carbs. It’s high in both with 610 calories and 42 carbs. It is one good sandwich though.

 

Nutritional Info – Arby’s Smokehouse Brisket sandwich (203g)
Calories – 610 (from Fat – 320)

So both new items I sampled were winners!
