The Difference Between Wendy's Baconator Fries And Bacon Pub Fries
By James Lewis
Wendy's menu boasts a range of fast food fries, including garlic fries, cheese fries, and chili cheese fries, and two of its options have distinctive Wendy's burger equivalents — the Baconator and Pub fries. However, despite their distinct names and associations, they share very similar ingredients.
Wendy’s Baconator fries are similar to the Pub Fries, as both options are drizzled with cheese sauce, shredded cheese, and bacon. The only difference in toppings is that Pub Fries are coated "with warm beer cheese sauce" with a cheddar base, while the Baconator fries have a non-beer cheddar sauce.
Wendy's Pub Fries' cheese sauce not only includes beer but dijon mustard, which is made with chardonnay wine (the lack of alcohol warnings suggests that Pub Fries contain very low levels of alcohol). There are also slight differences in the nutritional content of the two types of fries, as Wendy's Pub Fries have a bit more calories and sodium than the Baconator alternative.
