This month, Wendy's introduced a new burger, the Bacon Deluxe (with one to three patties), and replaced its previously used bacon with more premium, thick-cut applewood-smoked bacon. Here's what it looks like in real life, after the jump.
The single Bacon Deluxe ($4.69) comes with a fresh quarter-pound patty, American cheese, four slices of bacon, iceberg lettuce, tomato, onions, pickles, mayonnaise, and ketchup.
I also got the Baconator ($5.99) made of two quarter-pound patties with American cheese, six strips of bacon, mayonnaise, and ketchup—aka, no veggies.
If you want a review of the Bacon Deluxe, check out The Impulsive Buy. As my first time eating Wendy's burgers (I was a McDonald's kid growing up), I'm willing to say that I liked the burgers more than those from McDonald's and Burger King and the bacon wasn't bad, but it's not something I'd choose to eat again.
