Talking Fast Food Part 7 - Wendy's Breakfast

While the very first entry in the Talking Fast Food series touched on Wendy's, they introduced breakfast after that.

I FINALLY got to try the new Wendy's breakfast yesterday, and I have to say I was pleased. I don't eat eggs (I try them different ways occasionally, and I just don't like them at all) so that always plays a part in my breakfast choices.

The Honey Butter Chicken Biscuit combo was what looked most appetizing to me so I got that.

First of all, we need to acknowledge that the food never looks like it does on TV so my biscuit wasn't nearly as pretty or honey buttery looking as what we have to the right here.

That said, the flavor was on point. Really liked the chicken which didn't surprise me as I like all of Wendy's fried chicken stuff, and the honey butter flavor does come through whether it looks it or not.

The seasoned potato sides are reminiscent of the KFC potato wedges, but more "fry like." They weren't as thick, but again the flavor was really good.

The coffee was fine, but I'm not sure if I was supposed to order it with cream and sugar or not (like McDonald's does) because they threw sugar packets in my bag and handed me a little container of cream that she poured. Maybe they were just out of the single serve creamer things, not sure.

I'm not ready to rank all the fast food breakfast options out there, but Wendy's is near the top for me (Hardee's is king BTW).

All-in-all, I think the Wendy's breakfast was a huge success and I look forward to getting it again.

Now at this point I'd like to share something else. Me and Norko had discussed becoming more collaborative with this site, and one thing we were excited about touching on was Wendy's breakfast.

For whatever reason, I never got around to trying it before his untimely passing, but he had shared his notes with me already. The layout to this would be much different if he were still with us, but under the circumstances I opted to do my part and share his at the end.

Below are his raw notes he sent me about the Wendy's breakfast.

"For FFA Wendy's breakfast. Potatoes. They're essentially seasoned steak fries. The batch I got were hot and that taste a good set of steak fries has.

The honey butter chicken biscuit is on par with the CFA size wise. Slight hint of sweetness in the chicken. Overall. Not a bad breakfast meal. Would go again if I needed a fast meal.

Oh. Add this in as well.

When I go to Wendy's for breakfast, it'll definitely be for the chicken choices. I'm not a fan of the choice of egg they use in their other sandwiches. I like scrambled eggs, yes, I'm weird like that."
