The Fast Foodie: Wendy’s Announces Baconator Fries

Wendy’s is following up on their popular Baconator sandwich with limited-time only Baconator Fries.

The fast food chain is banking on the fact that everything is in fact better with bacon (TRUTH!) by adding their twist on cheese fries to the menu.

Baconator Fries are a blend of warm cheddar cheese sauce, freshly-cooked Applewood Smoked Bacon and shredded cheddar cheese over Wendy’s natural-cut fries.

Limited-time Baconator Fries will be available starting July 6th and have a suggested price of $1.99.

Sounds Bacontastic? A Baconpallooza? Bacon-o-ramma? (okay … enough bacontractions)

If you have never had a Baconator, it consists of six strips of fresh-cooked Applewood Smoked Bacon with two 1/4 pound beef patties topped with mayo, ketchup, and cheese on a toasted bun.
