Can You Handle the Heat? New Wendy’s Offerings Feature Ghost Peppers
Wendy’s introduces two new menu items that, according to the brand, were almost too spicy to make it onto the menu.
Jalapeño Fresco Spicy Chicken Sandwich and Ghost Pepper Fries are “made especially for those with fire-proof [palates],” according to a press release.
Jalapeño Fresco Spicy Chicken Sandwich starts off with Wendy’s spicy chicken and is topped with diced jalapeños, ghost pepper sauce, Colby pepper jack cheese, red onion, and a red jalapeño bun. The Ghost Pepper Fries are topped with a cheese sauce, diced jalapeños, shredded Cheddar cheese, and a ghost pepper sauce.
“The Jalapeño Fresco Spicy Chicken Sandwich and Ghost Pepper Fries are both great examples of what makes Wendy's so deliciously different,” said Kurt Kane, Wendy's chief concept and marketing officer. “Both of these products are game-changers because the heat and spice are intense, while the flavor combination is truly craveable.”
Both offerings are available for a limited time at participating Wendy’s. The sandwich has a suggested price of $4.99, and $1.99 for the fries.
