Review: Wendy's - Updated Sausage Biscuit

Wendy's Sausage Biscuit is on the Everyday Breakfast Value Menu of their ongoing breakfast test and is priced at 99 cents. I tried their Sausage Biscuit back in 2009 and it seems they upgraded it a bit.

It's pretty simple with a grilled all-natural sausage patty sandwiched inside two halves of a fresh-baked Southern-style buttermilk biscuit brushed with butter.

How's the sausage? It's good: peppery, savory, and not too greasy. It's similar to McDonald's sausage, but without as many herby notes.

The biscuits are baked throughout the morning and mine was buttery, moist, spongy, and soft. I liked the texture and taste of the crumb, but the crust wasn't crispy or crunchy. It was probably the softest crust that I've had on a fast food biscuit. Basically, it could be better, but I still enjoyed it.

Overall, Wendy's Sausage Biscuit is fairly comparable to the rest of the fast food field of sausage biscuits. High points were the crumb and buttery flavor. The sausage was above average. And, the low point was the soft crust. For 99 cents, it's basic, but good.
