The eagle eyes on Reddit have discovered an unauthenticated memo – allegedly from Wendy’s – that spells out plans for new menu items at the chain beginning November 15th. Among them:
- Italian Chicken Mozzarella Sandwich
- Italian Cheeseburger
- Garlic Fries
It’s alleged that the sandwiches were tested in the Columbus, Ohio market earlier this year with results that “surpassed expectations” and feature a garlic knot bun, marinara sauce and fried mozzarella cheese. Prices weren’t stated on the memo, but the Garlic Fries are said to be $2-3 more expensive than Wendy’s traditional fries.
Reactions were mixed with one user saying “finally something good” and another commenting “this sounds like BK’s Italian Chicken” and “I can’t imagine these flavors complementing a burger, but maybe someone likes beef drenched in tomato sauce? Here’s the other side of the coin. To make room for the new items, the Hot Honey Chicken Sandwich and Hot Honey Chicken Biscuit will be disappearing from all digital ordering platforms on November 14. We told you late last month that Wendy’s may also be discontinuing their Hot Honey Sauce.
