Arby's Gets in on 'Game of Thrones' Finale With Whole Turkey Leg
Arby’s is temporarily adding an appropriately unrefined staple to their menu in homage to Game of Thrones: a huge slow-roasted, smoked turkey leg with salt and brown sugar On Aug. 27 — the day of the show’s season finale — patrons in select “kingdoms” can feast on the primitively prepared poultry limb: Fargo, North Dakota; Los Angeles; Seattle; Norfolk, Virginia; Pittsburgh; Phoenix; Denver; Omaha; and Atlanta.
Thrones fans and turkey lovers alike have taken to Twitter over Arby’s new product. Some users are giving it a hard pass, while others can’t contain their excitement.
While Game of Thrones isn’t sponsoring the promotion, Arby’s has employed the tagline “Turkey is coming” in reference to the show's well-known catchphrase, “Winter is coming.”
The Game of Thrones finale airs this Sunday at 9 p.m. ET on HBO. Click here to see Game of Thrones' best food moments so far.
