8 Best Arby’s Desserts, Ranked

Arby’s is best known for its savory sandwiches, but they also have a selection of desserts to provide a sweet finish to any of their meals.

From their classic milkshakes to delicious turnovers, Arby’s dessert menu offers a tasty treat for just about everyone!

Arby’s dessert menu includes milkshakes, cookies, and turnovers. Cookies and turnovers come in one standard size; however, milkshakes come in four different sizes: snack, small, medium, and large.

Depending on your Arby’s location, you can order desserts in-person or online for curbside pickup or delivery.

All Arby’s shake mixes, cookies, and turnovers are manufactured in a facility that processes peanuts and tree nuts, so these desserts are not peanut or nut allergy friendly.

In this article, we’ll rank Arby’s desserts based on their taste, texture, and overall nutritional value.

8. Vanilla Shake

Any vanilla milkshake is considered a classic, and Arby’s vanilla shake is no different.

It’s a creamy and smooth combination of vanilla ice cream and milk, topped off with whipped cream.

If you want a simple cold drink on a summer day, this Arby’s dessert is for you. However, simple isn’t for everyone.

Apart from the addition of the whipped topping, there’s nothing extra that makes this milkshake stand out.

Below are the nutritional values for each size of Arby’s vanilla shake:

  • Snack size: 280 calories, 40 grams of sugar, 44 grams of carbs

  • Medium size: 690 calories, 95 grams of sugar, 103 grams of carbs

Arby’s vanilla shake price varies by size and location; however, it typically costs between $2.99 and $4.99.

7. Triple Chocolate Cookie

We all get a craving for a decadent chocolate dessert, and Arby’s delivers this with their triple chocolate cookie.

Arby’s triple chocolate cookie is warm and chewy and made with Ghirardelli chocolate.

To enjoy this cookie, you have to LOVE chocolate because there is a lot of it!

The three layers of chocolate make the cookie extremely fudgy, and there isn’t a touch of vanilla or a different sweet element to lighten the richness.

The triple chocolate cookie at Arby’s only comes in one size.

One cookie has 450 calories, 31 grams of sugar, and 60 grams of carbs.

The cookie price may depend on Arby’s location, but it typically costs around $1.89.

6. Cherry Turnover

Next up on our ranking, we have the Arby’s cherry turnover! These turnovers are flaky pastries with cherry filling and drizzled vanilla icing on top.

Who doesn’t love to bite into a crisp, fluffy pastry after indulging in a heavy meal?

Turnovers, in general, are an American staple, and the mix of flavors makes it a comforting dessert.

The cherry filling is a little on the sweeter side, but the filling melts in your mouth when you eat it warm.

One cherry turnover has 390 calories, making it the second-lowest calorie option on the Arby’s desserts menu (right behind the snack-size vanilla shake).

It also has 40 grams of sugar and 65 grams of carbs.

The price depends on the Arby’s location; however, one cherry turnover typically costs around $1.49.

5. Chocolate Shake

Now we have another classic on our list: Arby’s chocolate shake. The Arby’s chocolate shake sets itself apart by being made with Ghirardelli chocolate.

The shake is made with Ghirardelli chocolate, and the whipped topping is drizzled with it as well!

The whipped topping provides a nice break between the chocolate shake and the chocolate drizzle.

However, if you want to remove the whipped chocolate and the drizzle, you can easily modify the shake.

Note that the whipped topping and Ghirardelli chocolate drizzle are not included in the snack size.

Arby’s chocolate shake comes in four different sizes, with prices typically ranging from $1.00 to $4.99.

4. Salted Caramel and Chocolate Cookie

Arby’s salted caramel and chocolate cookie lands itself at number 4 on our list—and it’s a fan favorite for a reason!

This cookie is a combination of salted caramel, Ghirardelli chocolate chips, and additional salt sprinkled over it.

In fact, you can actually see the chunks of salt on top of the cookie.

Arby’s salted caramel and chocolate cookie is a great option for anyone craving a salty and sweet dessert.

This cookie is a little chewier than the triple chocolate cookie, which is why it landed higher in our rankings.

The salted caramel and chocolate cookie comes in one standard size and has approximately 430 calories, 33 grams of sugar, and 63 grams of carbs.

Prices may vary by Arby’s location, but the cookie is typically priced at $1.49.

3. Apple Turnover

If you live by the phrase, “an apple a day keeps the doctor away,” then Arby’s apple turnover might be your new favorite dessert!

Like the cherry turnover, the apple turnover is made with a flaky pastry and a sweet apple filling, drizzled with vanilla icing on top.

Apple turnovers are a great dessert for every season — especially when the pastry is warm.

Nothing really beats eating this dessert on a fall afternoon!

The apple turnover is slightly heavier than the cherry version, with 430 calories.

Each turnover also has 39 grams of sugar and 65 grams of carbs.

While Arby’s locations may vary in price, it usually costs the same as the cherry turnover at $1.49.

2. Orange Cream Shake

Next up is the runner-up on our list: Arby’s orange cream shake!

This milkshake is a seasonal fan favorite that comes out annually around summertime.

While it’s only available for a limited time, the orange cream shake has become one of Arby’s most popular desserts over the past few years.

The orange cream shake is available throughout the summer, typically from May to August.

The milkshake was inspired by a favorite summer dessert: the orange creamsicle. It tastes just like it!

1. Jamocha Shake

This brings us to number one on our list of the best Arby’s desserts — the Arby’s Jamocha milkshake!

This is another fan favorite and our favorite as well.

The Jamocha milkshake blends coffee and chocolate into one and has whipped cream on top with a Ghirardelli chocolate drizzle.

Even though it’s made with coffee, the drink has a low amount of caffeine (only containing approximately 0.72 mg of caffeine per fl. oz).

The coffee flavor in this milkshake balances out the chocolate, making it not as sweet as other shakes on their menu.  

Like Arby’s other milkshakes, you can remove the whipped topping and chocolate drizzle if you prefer.

Note that the snack size does not include the chocolate drizzle or whipped topping.

This milkshake has the most calories, grams of sugar, and carbs.

Below are the nutritional values of each Jamocha shake size:

  • Medium size: 830 calories, 116 grams of sugar, 138 grams of carbs
  • Large size: 1060 calories, 147 grams of sugar, 172 grams of carbs
