New for Wendy’s in November, a huge new burger build. The new Pretzel Baconator should be a match for even the biggest of appetites. You might recall a simpler Pretzel Bacon Pub Cheeseburger came first in in 2020, with a repeat in 2022.

- 2 x hamburger patties
- Applewood smoked bacon
- Pretzel bun
- 2 x slices American cheese
It’s a mammoth construction and weighs in at 1050 calories. At the same store local to me a combo meal begins from $8.09 – with a coke and medium fries, the count is edged up to 1650 calories.
