Order: Baconator, five-piece chicken nugget, and a chocolate Frosty (no fries)
I used to be a Jr. Bacon guy. From a self-justification standpoint, they somehow pull off the very neat trick of making the consumption of two cheeseburgers feel like you're eating maybe half of one. Which worked out quite well until the Baconator came around. Perfect name, perfect fast-food bacon cheeseburger. It's just more substantial, and the bigger Wendy's squares just feel and taste more like a "real" burger than the little ones for some reason.
Wendy's has only one problem, and it's the fries. They LOOK good, but they're just... not. It almost seems like they're unsalted, and there's not enough of that McDonald's-type layer of snap on the outside. Luckily the chicken nuggets are a beyond-worthy replacement that certainly couldn't be your main course, but can very adroitly serve one function of fries: breaking up your burger consumption. Can you dip them, like many love to do with the fries, in your Frosty, maybe the most revered (and cheapest) fast-food shake? Of course you can, this is your world, man!! But please don't. -- Ben Robinson, editorial director
