Wendy’s goes big with the new Big Bacon Cheddar Cheeseburger

Wendys - Big Bacon Cheddar Cheeseburger

Another brand going big and bold this fall is Wendy’s. Late August sees them launch this new monster, a cheesy, bacon-filled mammoth of a burger; apparently the third addition to their new Made to Crave lineup in 2021.

The new Big Bacon Cheddar Cheeseburger starts with Wendy’s fresh, never frozen beef and adds on:

  • Applewood smoked bacon
  • Bacon sauce
  • Crispy onions
  • American cheese
  • Cheddar cheese spread
  • Cheddar bun, toasted

The Big Bacon Cheddar Cheeseburger is priced at $6.89 at the location closest to us in Salt Lake City.

Several other brands have tapped into bacon-flavors this year, most notable Cracker Barrel,  Wendy’sRed RobinIHOP and Shake Shack.
