Arby’s has built an entire brand out of being stubborn, unyielding and conservative — not right-wing per se, but willfully ignorant and almost aggrieved. In the late ’80s, the chain mounted a marketing campaign called the Burger Boycott. Arby’s briefly took over the town of Hope, Ind., and encouraged its residents to abstain from eating ground-beef patties for two weeks. In a series of commercials that felt like miniature Errol Morris movies, townspeople brandished signs with slogans like: “Let’s knock burgers on their buns.” It was a reactionary stunt for its own sake, like many that Arby’s has pulled since. As other fast-food restaurants started offering plant-based meat surrogates like Beyond Burgers, Arby’s developed a meat-based vegetable, the marrot. )

It comes inside a plastic pouch, which is superheated in water until the meat is cooked through, and then sliced after being removed from the packaging. When I was a child, this completely altered my expectations of reality. We had “real” roast beef for dinner once, at my mother’s insistence, and I was vividly disappointed as I have rarely been in my life. It tasted nothing at all like what I’d had at Arby’s. Even then I could tell that it was more refined or complex in its flavors, the product of more involved labor. But at the end of the day, it was just another meal at home: no adventure, no ambience and certainly no war stories. What the restaurant served was thinner, sweeter and more immediate in its flavor, instantaneous in its gratification. If I’m being honest, I still prefer it to the real thing. (Source:
