New Wendy's Burgers!


Wendy's is hyping their new $0.50 hamburgers. I thought they would be a new burger a la Krystal or White Castle. But they're not new burgers -- just the same Jr. Hamburger that was on their 99-cent value menu. Just cheaper now.

I tried them a couple of days ago. Not too bad. The bun is just over 3" round. The patty is just over 3" too, but square. That's like the Bambinos -- square patty with a round bun. Isn't that bad feng shui or something? The patty is thin -- 3/8" or 1/4". The Jrs. also have a squirt of ketchup, squirt of mustard, and a couple of pickle slices.

On her way back from class, T picked up some Jrs. for me...


These were plain. No condiments. No pickles. Each one was 80g.

The square patty on the round bun is just wrong. Deliciously wrong.

The scale is a must for any competitive eating diehard.

Looks like a 50 cent burger. Maybe even a 40 cent burger.

You got me excited, and then I went to Wendy's. No fifty cent burgers for us here in PA. Damn you, Skinnyboy! :-)

Yeah MM, the patty is kinda sad.. but deliciously sad.

And Bill, Wendy's must be testing them in a few markets. Colorado Springs has them, but no 50 cent burgers here in Denver..
