Arby's French Fries

I can't speak for you but here at boj World Headquarters®© very little time elapsed after reading the article before I got in my car and headed straight to Arby's to see if they got it right.

Long story (and two large fries later) short: I won't argue.

What is it?


Answer here this time tomorrow.

Hint: smaller than a bread box.

From Markets Insider:

Charmin created a toilet-paper roll for millennials that lasts up to 3 months

Procter & Gamble has created a new toilet-paper roll for millennials and older people who live alone and have limited storage space.

A P&G executive told The Wall Street Journal that the Charmin Forever Roll (below),

at nearly three times the size of a conventional toilet-paper roll, could last up to three months in a single-person household and requires half as much storage space as conventional rolls.

An ad for the Charmin Forever Roll says, "With Forever Roll, you can go longer between roll changes without sacrificing your comfort. It's super convenient and long-lasting, so you have one less thing to think about!"

According to The Journal, P&G created the Forever Roll with two types of single-person households in mind: "urban millennials and aging consumers."

The Forever Roll comes in two sizes:

• Single-user — 8.7" in diameter: $5.49

• Multi-user — 12" in diameter: $9.99 (conventional rolls measure roughly 5" in diameter)

Forever Roll Starter Kit: $29.97

(includes brushed-stainless-steel roll holder — either free-standing or wall-mounted — and three Forever  Rolls [size not specified but I'd put good money on their being the smaller of the two diameters])
