Those who live outside the traditional “Barbecue Belt” of the United States have long been deprived of an abundance of quality barbecue, but that ends now! America is finally getting convenient access to the BBQ options it deserves, thanks to Wendy’s three new BBQ Pulled Pork offerings: BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwich, BBQ Pulled Pork Cheeseburger and BBQ Pulled Pork Cheese Fries.
Wendy’s new BBQ Pulled Pork offerings feature hickory-smoked pulled pork that’s shredded – rather than chopped – to create long, authentic strands with great texture. Wendy’s also took a cue from local barbecue spots offering fans a choice of three custom-crafted sauces (Sweet, Smoky or Spicy) to fit consumers’ personal barbecue style.
“We’re known for our menu innovation, and our new BBQ Pulled Pork offerings deliver on the taste, quality, and customization our customers have come to expect,” said Brandon Solano, Senior VP, Marketing. “We’re giving customers the BBQ choices and flavors they deserve with the convenience of their local Wendy’s.”
Wendy’s three original BBQ Pulled Pork offerings, available until early November, include flavors and ingredients that go beyond typical quick-service barbecue condiments of pickles and onions:
- The BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwich features hickory-smoked pulled pork and crunchy slaw made fresh in Wendy’s kitchens every morning, topped with the customer’s choice of three custom-crafted BBQ sauces – Sweet, Smoky or Spicy – all served on a toasted, premium brioche bun. ($4.49)
- The BBQ Pulled Pork Cheeseburger starts with a fresh, never frozen juicy beef hamburger patty, topped with tender hickory-smoked pulled pork, a slice of natural cheddar cheese, crunchy slaw and one of three barbecue sauces, all stacked on a warm, toasted brioche bun. ($4.99)
- The BBQ Pulled Pork Cheese Fries use Wendy’s Natural-Cut Fries as a foundation for warm cheddar cheese sauce, hickory-smoked pulled pork, diced red onions and a choice of Wendy’s three custom-crafted sauces drizzled on top, making the perfect savory snack any time of day. ($2.99)
While we haven’t tried these new menu items yet, rest assured that it’s high up on our to-eat list. 🙂
