Last week I posted this article on facebook that discussed how their new Pretzel Bacon Cheeseburger appears to be on track as the best-selling new product introduction by that burger concept in at least a decade. This story even made Good Morning America, which is where I first saw this story. That is what actually peaked my interest. So, I posted the article on FB and asked my friends if they have tried it. I got mixed reviews but a few “GOOO TRY IT!” I have saw many adds about this burger but had NO interest until it was in the news. What is the hype about this burger? I mean, Wendy’s makes good burgers but GEEEESSH!
Ok, so today was the day. I was alone and on lunch so I stopped by Wendy’s and let my camera roll.
- Did I finish this burger? Sure did, that combo was 8 freaking dollars (but I did get a strawberry lemonade)!!
- Did I like the Wendy’s Pretzel Bacon Cheeseburger? Yes
- Would you order it again in the future? Nope.
- Would you recommend it? Nope.
The burger was good. That’s all it was, just good. Not great. Not – go tell all your friends to try it good. Not – this is going to be my go-to burger good either. I have tasted better burgers at Five Guys honestly. Have you ever tried something and although it wasn’t a bad experience, you don’t have to try it anymore. You are satisfied with the fact you tried it at least once. That’s how I feel about this burger. I tried it. I ate 5000 extra calories today (with these fries & strawberry lemonade), and now I have to do extra cardio tonight!
One last thing …. for the record, I believe Wendy’s has GOOD burgers. Out of the 3 big wigs; McDonald’s, Burger King & Wendy’s – I like Wendy’s burgers the best. So although I wouldn’t buy this burger again, I have no problem getting my burger fix with one of their juicy double cheeseburgers.
Have you tried it? What do you think?
