Wendy's Chicken Nuggets and Sandwiches Just Got Super Cheap

The chain's new meal deal helps you reach peak poultry for less.


This week Thrillist confirmed that Wendy's has removed promotions from its mobile app due to meat supply concerns, after reports claimed that there was simply not enough beef to go around. President Trump even said in response to a meat supply question that he was "going to call Nelson Peltz," a chairman of the pig-tailed chain, to address the catastrophe at hand.

But this shortage has an undeniable plus side for poultry lovers: There are still chicken nuggets and sandwiches at Wendy's, and right now you can get two orders for only $5. 

For the deal, you can choose two of any menu items listed below:

  • Homestyle Chicken Sandwich
  • Spicy Chicken Sandwich
  • Grilled Chicken Sandwich
  • 10-piece Crispy Chicken Nuggets
  • 10-piece Spicy Chicken Nuggets

To get the discount, just go through the drive-thru and mention the two for $5 deal. The offer's good at most Wendy's locations nationwide, but only for a little while (there's no clear end date).

The two for $5 deal is not a new thing, but the chicken focus is new. I'm personally thrilled to hear about the pivot. Wendy's chicken is extremely underrated, and I recall feeling betrayed by society's gentle nudge towards the McDonald's nugget the moment I bit into the spicy, crispy fowl of its competition.
