Meat that tastes like a carrot?While other fast food chains are adding plant-based “meat” alternatives to its menus, Arby’s is embracing its stance that it will never offer meat alternatives. And to emphasize their point, they have created the first meat vegetable – or “megetable.” It’s turkey meat that is shaped, colored and flavored like a carrot. According to a company statement: “Arby’s announced today its exploration into this new form of protein that looks like a vegetable and contains vitamin content found in a raw vegetable -- but is made of meat.” The “Marrot” looks like a real carrot – but is made with a turkey breast and dried carrot juice powder.Why not just have turkey and a real carrot?
