Arby’s is the second-largest sandwich restaurant brand in the world (after Subway), and as such, it’s only appropriate that they have such a full — and delicious — soft drink selection.
Along with the somewhat uncommon addition of Mello Yello to the fountain lineup, they get even fruitier with their own Market Fresh lemonade flavors — peach, strawberry and regular.

Challenge your friends with that little bit of trivia, and when you’re proven correct, you can have them pick up the tab for your lunch.
Some good old-fashioned proof is provided below, from page 2 of the News-Journal in Mansfield, Ohio, on August 31, 1975.
You’re welcome, and don’t forget to use your napkin — those dips and sauces can get a little messy.
