You can now get BBQ Pulled Pork Cheese Fries at Wendy's
Wendy's used to be all about the beef, but now they're adding another meat to their pantheon: pork, specifically of the "BBQ pulled" variety. They're loading it on top of several new menu items (the BBQ Pulled Pork Cheeseburger and the BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwich), but the most surprising and innovative of the bunch has to be their BBQ Pulled Pork Cheese Fries, which are topped with pulled pork, cheddar cheese sauce, red onion, and any one of three BBQ sauces -- Spicy, Sweet, or Smoky.
This news is pretty huge for an American fast-food burger chain, and, although it might have some barbecue purists wary, the early reviews are in, and they're calling these fries anything but ham-handed:
Wendy's pulled pork fries is one of the best fast food items I have ever consumed.— Tyler Arnold (@tylerhasnopals) September 22, 2014
BBQ Pulled Pork Cheese Fries are a paltry $2.99, and are available until early November. Just don't hog them all for yourself.
Adam Lapetina is a food/drink staff writer, and is pretty happy that fast-food joints are getting closer to serving disco fries. Read his musings on Twitter at @adamlapetina.
