Review: Wendy's - Pulled Pork Cheese Fries

Wendy's Pulled Pork Cheese Fries features a small plate of their natural-cut fries topped with warm cheddar cheese sauce, diced red onions, slow-cooked pulled pork, and a choice of barbecue sauce (choose from spicy, sweet, and smoky versions).

I bought an order for $2.99.

I actually ended up buying this twice; the first time they forgot the pulled pork and it looked like this (it actually tasted pretty good but yeah...).

The fries remained relatively crunchy despite being sealed in the container during the short drive home. They held up pretty well against the other ingredients without getting too soft or soggy.

I went with the spicy barbecue sauce and found that the heat was blunted to a lowly simmer by the other ingredients. Beyond the slight kick, it delivered a balanced blend of sweet, smoky, and tangy.

The cheddar cheese sauce sported a decent cheddar flavor rather than the plainer American cheese you sometimes get. It was a little too orange in color though.

The combination of barbecue sauce and warm cheddar cheese sauce was a little weird but it worked as an interesting hodge-podge of sweet, tangy, smoky, savory, and creamy.

The pork was moist and had a nice smoked flavor with a decent tenderness.

I really liked the inclusion of diced onions as they added freshness and a refreshing, acrid crunch to the dish.

Overall, Wendy's Pulled Pork Cheese Fries worked out pretty well. It offers an interesting mix of flavors that managed to fit very well together without losing any parts in the shuffle.
