When I woke up this morning I had no idea I was going to decide on the spur of the moment to grab the kids and run over to Wendy’s to try out their new, limited time only “Pretzel Bacon Cheeseburger”. Now, let me tell you first that I did not in any way receive any compensation or get anything for free in order to do this review. This review is based solely on my just wanting to try this new burger that I kept hearing about. I have had a pretzel bun before and I knew that it was quite a tasty treat, so I had high hopes that this new Wendy’s treat was going to be just as tasty as I had imagined. I mean, pretzel bun, bacon, burger, cheese, how could it taste bad, I mean, really? Then I thought, this has got to be so bad for you, but I was prepared for eating lettuce, fruits and veggies the rest of the day to offset the calories. As much as I wanted to eat them, I refrained from eating the french fries and gave those to my daughter. And the results are….
Right now, I can’t even begin to explain how freakin DELICIOUS the Wendy’s Pretzel Bacon Cheeseburger is! OMG…that is all I could say…and MMMMMMMMMMM after every bite! My daughter kept saying, “Stop with the MMMMM’s, it’s annoying me”! I didn’t care, I mean, it was the most amazing “fast food” burger I’ve had in a very long time! If you notice in the picture, my daughter looks like she either wants to steal the burger for her own enjoyment or tell me to stop the “mmm’s” again! The cheese sauce, the burger, the bacon, the pretzel bun…oh my, what a combination of true tastiness! I’d say Wendy’s hit the nail on the head with this one! I am hoping that this catches on and it doesn’t become a real “limited” item and they put it on their every day menu because it is one that I would, without a doubt buy over and over and over again! It was that worth it! THUMBS UP!
I have to say that I was worried about the nutritional value as I am going to be starting a documented weight loss journey. I wondered how this would impact my goal, however, the key to everything is done in moderation. I do not believe in limiting myself, but I do believe that it is ok to indulge every once in a while and foods could be enjoyed if done so the right way. I was curious to see how many Weight Watchers Points Plus this tasty treat carried so I did the calculations. To enjoy this treat, you must allow for 17 Weight Watchers Points Plus, which really isn’t as bad as I was fearing. Yes, it’s high, but hey that is what your 49 weekly points are for, right? So… I say, enjoy! If you want more nutritional information, I have added the screen shot from Wendy’s mobile site.
Dear Wendy’s… I love you and the new Pretzel Bacon Cheeseburger. You have advanced and are now on the top of my fast food restaurant list.
