Spice will want to check this one out for sure. Wendy’s are putting some spice into their February menu – with four new menu options; all based around liberal use of Jalapeños. The four new menu items include three sandwiches and one salad as follows (descriptions courtesy of Wendy’s):
- Classic Jalapeño Popper Sandwich – A juicy, lightly breaded chicken breast covered with jalapeño cream cheese, shredded pepper jack cheese, jalapeños (obviously), applewood smoked bacon, and cheddar cheese sauce. This thing has more poppin’ jalapeños than an actual jalapeño popper, $5.99
- Spicy Jalapeño Popper Sandwich – A juicy chicken breast marinated and breaded in our unique, fiery blend of peppers and spices made even spicier with jalapeño cream cheese, shredded pepper jack cheese, and, of course, jalapeños. Then we added some applewood smoked bacon and cheddar cheese sauce for good measure. One bite and you’ll be like “Oh, jal, yes!”, $5.99
- Grilled Jalapeño Popper Sandwich – Herb-marinated grilled chicken breast covered with jalapeño cream cheese, jalapeños themselves, shredded pepper jack cheese, applewood smoked bacon, and cheddar cheese sauce. Because you know you want jalapeños all up in your grilled chicken, $5.99
- Jalapeño Popper Salad – Made fresh daily with Wendy’s signature lettuce blend, spicy, crispy chicken breast, diced tomatoes, shredded pepper jack cheese, applewood smoked bacon, and, of course, jalapeños, all topped with a crispy jalapeño & cheddar crouton mix and jalapeño ranch. If you’re reading this, you must like jalapeños so, yes, this is the one you should get. Promise. $6.79
The prices above are from a restaurant close to us in Salt Lake City Utah – all four items are limited time offer specials.

Hi, I’m Stuart, nice to meet you! I’m the founder, writer and wrangler at Gastronomic Salt Lake City, and a former freelance restaurant critic.
