Wendy's New Breakfast Menu Arrives Nationwide Today

Wendy's has finally acknowledged that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. On Monday, the pigtailed fast food chain launched a fully-loaded breakfast menu nationwide, featuring sandwiches loaded with strips of bacon, sausage patties, eggs, and biscuits, of course.

The breakfast menu includes several sandwiches made with eggs, cheese, and your usual breakfast proteins like bacon and sausage. There's even a chicken biscuit smothered with honey butter. You can choose from the following:

  • Maple Bacon and Chicken Croissant
  • Sausage, Egg, & Swiss Croissant
  • Bacon, Egg, & Swiss Croissant
  • Honey Butter Chicken Biscuit
  • Bacon, Egg, & Cheese Biscuit
  • Sausage, Egg, & Cheese Biscuit
  • Breakfast Baconator
  • Classic Sausage, Egg, & Cheese Sandwich
  • Classic Bacon, Egg, & Cheese Sandwich
  • Honey Butter Biscuit
  • Sausage Biscuit
  • Sausage Egg & Cheese Burrito

In addition to the sandwiches and burrito, Wendy's has also added Frosty-ccinos to its menu in both chocolate and vanilla. A Frosty-ccino is essentially Wendy's cold brew mixed with either chocolate or vanilla Frosty mix so yes, it is officially acceptable to indulge in a Frosty before noon now.  

Lastly, you can also snag a Baked Oatmeal Bar from Wendy's, loaded with cranberries and blueberries. Maybe consider that your breakfast dessert to follow up the Breakfast Baconator. Potato wedges and apple bites are available as sides.

Other fast food chains have taken notice of the arrival of Wendy's breakfast menu and are fighting be your go-to morning choice. Both Burger King and McDonald's have launched a 2 for $4 deal featuring breakfast sandwiches, and McDonald's went so far as to declare March 2 National Egg McMuffin Day with a deal for free McMuffins. Is it mere coincidence, or just an opportunity to try to outshine Wendy's big news?

Regardless of the pettiness, our fast food breakfast options just expanded and we're stoked. Besides, Wendy's already dragged McDonald's recently -- maybe everyone should just settle down a bit, enjoy a Frosty-ccino, and call it a day.
