News: Wendy's - New Ciabatta Bacon Cheeseburger

Wendy's new Ciabatta Bacon Cheeseburger is now available for a limited time.

The new burger was tested last year and features a quarter-pound beef patty, oven-roasted, chopped tomatoes, rosemary-garlic aioli, spring mix, natural Asiago cheese, and applewood-smoked bacon on a toasted Ciabatta bun.

The new bun is described by the company as having "a light, airy texture and a thin, delicate crust."

Premium buns of various bread types have worked out pretty well for the fast food chain lately (last year saw the introduction of multigrain flatbread, pretzel buns, and brioche buns) and it looks to continue the trend this year with Ciabatta.

The new Ciabatta Bacon Cheeseburger carries a suggested price of $4.79.

You might remember when I mentioned it was coming earlier this month (although I had it down for February).
