The vodka sounds interesting.

But still want to try the peanut butter whiskey.

Skrewball Peanut Butter whiskey is great. I found an even better peanut butter whiskey in Nashville called Ole Smokey, but I don't think it's available in Missouri.

This isn't the first time Arby's has tried something radical like this.

I did my teenager fast-food worker stint in a Arby's and they experimented with selling beer for a short time. In one regard, it was a novel idea, in that it put them in a space all by themselves in the fast-food arena, but it failed miserably. Nobody ever ordered it.

We obviously could not sell it in the drive-thru and it had to be consumed in the restaurant. There were restrictions about what teen-age employees could do. IIRC, I could actually pull the tap and "serve" the beer, I just couldn't collect money on a beer sell. Essentially all the cashiers were teenagers and on the rare occasions when someone ordered a beer , they had to beckon an adult (usually a manager) to come take the order. It was not very efficient, but that wasn't why it failed, people just weren't conditioned to drink beer in a fast food joint. ("Oh wow, you serve beer?! That's great! umm, but I think I'll pass")

I have only had Skrewball and it is fantastic. If you like Peanut Butter, you cannot go wrong with this whiskey.

Thanks to you, and ABUX earlier as well.

I guess I like Peanut Butter.

I mean, it’s not like I wake up in the middle of the night for a couple spoonfuls right out of the jar for a quick midnight snack.

Even if you don’t, it’s good. Mix it with Coke, it’s like a dessert.

Would Skrewball mixed with grape soda taste like a peanut butter and jelly sandwich? :wink:

I thought the whole appeal of vodka - at least to the alcoholics among us - was that vodka was colorless and essentially flavorless/odorless.

I guess now, though, they can say: no, that's not liquor on my breath you smell; I just ate some Arby's fries.

My son's brewpub has a coffee stout that, when mixed with the peanut butter whiskey, tastes like a liquid Reeses Peanut Butter Cup. Deeelish.

Sheeet! That sounds good.

As I’ve gotten older, not too many sweets for me, but nothing can keep me away from PB cups even cheap (donkey) ones.

And I can’t do without coffee, so ask for a recipe.

I ordered it. But only a couple of times, Arby's selections weren't what they are now.
Long John's Silver had beer when they first opened, not sure how long they had it. I ordered it, it was great with their fish & chips.

Anybody try that pork sandwich they were featuring a couple months ago?

I did have that pork sandwich and I liked it. I was disappointed, though, that they got rid of potato cakes.
