New Ghost Pepper Chicken Sandwich and Fries at Wendy's

Wendy's jumps on the ghost pepper wagon with the new, limited-time Jalapeno Fresco Spicy Chicken Sandwich and Ghost Pepper Fries set for a national launch next week (although they're already available in some areas). Both items feature a ghost pepper sauce.

The Jalapeno Fresco Spicy Chicken Sandwich features a crispy, spicy chicken breast filet, diced fresh (rather than pickled) jalapenos, ghost pepper sauce, warm cheese sauce, Colby Pepper Jack cheese, and red onion on a toasted bakery-style red jalapeno bun. It carries a suggested price of $4.99 (may vary).

New Ghost Pepper Fries takes an order of Wendy's Natural Cut Fries and topped them with diced, fresh jalapenos, warm cheddar cheese sauce, and the same ghost pepper sauce as the chicken sandwich. The suggested price for an order of Ghost Pepper Fries is $1.99 (may vary).

Spicy menu items have been all the rage this spring in Fast Food Land with the introduction of dishes like KFC's Chicken & Rice Bowl and Carl's Jr./Hardee's Thickburger El Diablo.
