Well, it’s time to say goodbye to the pretzel bun and hello to brioche at Wendy’s. Although the pretzel bun was nice while it lasted, the chain is betting that you’ll be just as happy with the lighter, eggier French bun.
Wendy’s will be re-introducing their Bacon Portabella Melt starting Nov. 11 but now it will come on a brioche bun instead of a traditional one, according to a press release.
First introduced last year, it’s a burger patty topped with sautéed portabella mushrooms in creamy cheddar cheese sauce, Applewood smoked bacon, and American cheese in a toasted brioche bun.
Wendy’s had a successful summer with their Pretzel Bacon Cheeseburger and Pretzel Pub Chicken sandwich. It seems that premium buns are a crowd-pleaser, hence the brioche.
The Bacon Portabella Melt will be available until the end of December for $4.79. All we can say is this has to be the fanciest burger in the fast food market as of now and looks just as good (if not better) than the well-loved Pretzel Bacon Cheeseburger.
