They have a Jalapeno Fresco Spicy Chicken sandwich right now that is actually legit. I recommend it for you folks who dig spices.

I hated on Wendy's when they originally came out with the Spicy Chicken sandwich because it wasn't, so I felt like I needed to give them credit here.

This sandwich is legit. Try it.

Only thing is that I don't care for cheese on my chicken sammitch.... but I may try it.

Their "Ghost Pepper Fries," while being ok, don't actually contain any ghost peppers. Jalapenos. I kind of dislike the misleading marketing.

This isn't directly food related, but this is too funny.
Look at the entire chain. It's a name brand pile on. Hilarious!

That doesn't gross me out. Babies get washed in kitchen sinks all the time.

Doesn't really bother me either. Kid is just being a clown.

Going full breakfast

Croissant - Check
Biscuits - Check
Baconator - What? I cannot tell if that's hamburger or sausage as the meat patty in it.

I've said it before, I'll say it again: fuck breakfast. Let me order burgers at 7am, everywhere.

I'd rather have all day breakfast than all day not-breakfast.

Wendy's breakfast is a huge hit.

This is shocking to me.

Every McDonald's I pass on the way to work (2) have lines wrapped around them in the mornings. Ditto for both Tim Horton's.

Every Wendy's (2) rarely ever has a car in line.

Now at lunchtime, different story. McD's and Wendy's have long lines, but nobody is at Tim Horton's.

The couple times I got it, it was good. I suspected that McD's started COVID to try to shut down Wendy's breakfast because they happened at the same time.

As I approach 50, I'm learning that the only way to keep the weight off is to stop eating food.

Sigh.

Taking this to the other thread.

Tried a breakfast sandwich today. Got a sausage, egg, and swiss croissant. Reminded me of BK's offering.

Loved the fact that I could get strawberries as a side.

Strawberries were one side, apples were another option, and then your standard bullshit. Between the strawberries and my unsweet tea, the only substantial calories I had were in the sandwich.

Considering the chili in their restaurants is made of leftover ground beef from the night before, this is interesting.

Also, weird that a chili dog is pictured. Their chili always seemed too watery for such an application.

I've seen criticism of Wendy's using the day-old meat in chili. Fuck that, that makes great chili.

But I'm boycotting them as long as they're running their "Rod-o-dah" commercial.
