News: Pretzel Buns Back at Wendy's Starting Early July

Pretzel buns are coming back to Wendy's early next month and with them mark the return of the Pretzel Bacon Cheeseburger and Pretzel Pub Chicken Sandwich.

The Pretzel Bacon Cheeseburger was probably the most buzzed-about limited-time offer from Wendy's last year and kicked off their recent bun experiments (including the recent test of a cornbread bun). It features warm cheddar cheese sauce, applewood-smoked bacon, smoky honey mustard, quarter-pound beef patty, a slice of cheddar cheese, sliced red onions, tomato, and spring mix on a pretzel bun (I tried it last year).

The Pretzel Pub Chicken Sandwich (yup, tried this one too) comes with a slice of Muenster cheese, honey mustard, warm cheddar cheese sauce, a crispy-fried chicken breast filet, hand-sliced tomatoes, and fresh spring mix on a pretzel bun.

If neither tickles your fancy, you can upgrade to a pretzel bun on any Wendy's burger or sandwich for a suggested upcharge of 30 cents.

The suggested price for the Pretzel Bacon Cheeseburger is $4.99, while the price tag on the Pretzel Pub Chicken Sandwich is 10 cents higher at $5.09 (may vary; I guess even with rising beef prices, a chicken breast filet still costs more than a beef patty and bacon).

The pretzel bun sandwiches should be rolled out to most Wendy's locations by the July 4th weekend.
