After a spicy launch in January, Arby’s is upping the ante with new Diablo Loaded Fries and spicy Roast Beef sandwich offering

Last winter, Arby’s launched the Diablo Dare and challenged fans to eat the spiciest sandwich in QSR before tapping out for relief from a free vanilla shake. Now, Arby’s is bringing back the heat and upping the ante with the addition of new Diablo Loaded Fries to the dare. Just in case things get too hot, any order of both the Diablo sandwich and fries also comes with a free extingui-shake for those who can’t handle the heat of the new Diablo Dare Challenge.

Available in Crispy Chicken or a new Roast Beef option, you’ll feel heat from four sources of spice: fiery hot seasoning, fire-roasted jalapeños and Diablo BBQ sauce served with melted cheddar cheese on a toasted red chipotle bun. Along with the new Roast Beef sandwich offering, the new Diablo Fries are covered in cheddar cheese sauce plus fire roasted jalapeños, fiery seasoning and Diablo BBQ sauce that will be sure to leave your mouth on fire with every bite.

“Arby’s fans loved the Diablo Dare sandwiches so much, we knew we just had to bring it back,” said Jim Taylor, President of Arby’s. “And this time we’ve added a spicy new sidekick in the form of our delicious Diablo Loaded Fries. If you are a spice lover, you owe it to yourself to give these a try!”

Returning for a limited time on October 24, the Diablo sandwiches will be available at participating locations nationwide. To receive the free snack shake, guests must order both the Diablo sandwich and LOADED fries.

To see if Arby’s fans can really handle the heat, Arby’s is launching the Diablo Dare Challenge on TikTok. Starting October 24, fans can go on TikTok and use a branded effect filter to show their followers how much of the Diablo Dare Challenge they can take before reaching for relief with the vanilla shake. Follow along with the challenge through #ArbysDiabloDare.
