Wendy’s New Pretzel Bacon Cheeseburger
A week ago, I read news announcing the release of Wendy’s premium burger which is served on a toasted pretzel bun. I love pretzel buns. I had read a few months ago that Wendy’s would be releasing a pretzel bun burger so as soon as I saw that it was now available, I headed to my local Wendy’s.
The cheeseburger with a single patty is slightly under $5.00. At first, I was a little taken aback about the price, but then when I got home and opened my burger, I could understand it. Not only is the burger served on a toasted pretzel bun, but the inside has bacon, spring greens (instead of iceberg lettuce), Wendy’s famous smokey honey mustard sauce, and fresh onions, tomatoes.
The bun itself was great. It managed to be sturdy enough to hold all the ingredients in and also be soft and fluffy. It had the taste of a soft pretzel, but in a bread roll form. I was tempted just to eat the bun by itself, even though the inside filling was pretty good too, especially with the fresh vegetables and honey mustard.
I’ve actually never been a big Wendy’s cheeseburger person. I love their chicken sandwiches, the chili, fries, Frosty’s, chicken nuggets, but have never particularly cared for their cheeseburger. So I was originally hoping the pretzel bun was being offered with their chicken sandwiches. However, I was pleasantly surprised. I enjoyed this burger and am happy to see Wendy’s offering a solid pretzel bun.
