News: Wendy's - New Son of Baconator

Wendy's new Son of Baconator is a slightly smaller version of the Baconator, a beefy burger for the meat and cheese set.

Where the Baconator features two quarter-pound beef patties, six strips of thick, applewood-smoked bacon, two slices of American cheese, ketchup, and mayo on a buttered and toasted bun, its Son tones it down a bit with two 2.25-ounce beef patties (junior hamburger patties), and four strips of bacon.

The new addition is a bit curious since there's already the Baconator Single which has half the beef and bacon of the Baconator and a little less than the Son of Baconator. Does the move mark the disownment of the Baconator Single? Or, is there enough room on the Baconator family tree for all three?

I've included the nutritional information of the Baconator Double below for comparison.
