Arby’s Has A 1,000-Piece Puzzle Covered With Its Fan-Favorite Items

Updated

on

Arby’s newest product is designed to show off their extensive menu with maximum amounts of fun. The chain has released its own puzzle that is covered in Arby’s delicious entrees. Since many of us are stuck inside anyway, this puzzle can be the perfect way to spend our free time. 

Piecing It Together

Arby’s official puzzle features some of its most popular items including roast beef sandwiches, curly fries, and mozzarella sticks. The puzzle’s title, “The 13-Hour Puzzle,” pays homage to the chain’s famous 13-hour smoked brisket. Keeping the story behind the title in mind, the chain includes a hilarious disclaimer which says, “Unlike Arby’s Smoked Brisket, the 13-Hour Puzzle may not take the full 13 hours to complete. Especially if you looked at the completed puzzle on the box before you started. And if you find yourself taking longer than 13 hours, try looking at the completed puzzle on the box.”

With 1,000 pieces, it might take a while to figure out. Arby’s describes this as putting your “mind and patience to the test.” If you want to get the puzzle for yourself, it is available on the official Arby’s Shop website for $25. 

Online Sales

Arby’s Shop has been in business for quite some time, selling products that fall in line with their delicious entrees. The shop includes other merchandise like t-shirts, hoodies, socks, and beachwear with the chain’s popular food items and sayings on them. Other items include pop sockets for cell phones, an Arby’s belt buckle, and a 10-gallon hat, which came into prominence by artist and producer Pharrell Williams.

Though the chain is still beloved for its meats, the shop has grown in popularity over the years due to its unique items. For example, in 2019, Arby’s had a unique, limited-edition holiday collection where customers could buy specialty holiday items including wrapping paper covered in roast beef, ham, and chicken sandwiches. Other fun things from the shop included a vintage holiday glass with the Arby’s logo on it as well as a special holiday sweatshirt.  

Puzzles Are Getting More Popular And Easier To Get

The 13-Hour Puzzle from Arby’s has already been getting a lot of attention, due both to its unique style and the coronavirus pandemic. With so many people inside, everyone is trying to come up with ways to stay busy. Interestingly, people are buying up puzzles left and right, selling out online and in-store at retailers like Target and Amazon. They’re getting so popular that a company has come up with an interesting way to get puzzles to people across the country. Online thrift store ThredUP came up with a puzzle swap program called Puzzle PopUP to trade in used puzzles for others to enjoy.

Under this program, people can sign up to get a free, printable shipping label, which can be used to send in as many used puzzles as they want. Once ThredUP receives the package, they will credit the sender’s account with $4.99 in shopping credit for every puzzle sent in. Customers can then apply that $4.99 credit to buy a “new-to-them” puzzle, which cost $4.99 each, plus shipping.  

ThredUP has been donating $1 from each purchase to Feeding America, a nonprofit organization that regularly works to end hunger in the United States for a limited amount of time. Their goal is to get to $100,000. So, if you’re looking for something to do, and Arby’s 13-Hour Puzzle isn’t for you, this would also be a great option to find some new puzzles to do at home!
