Wendy’s has a new twist on a menu staple. The Giant Junior Bacon Cheeseburger is essentially the same classic burger times two. The Giant JBC features two beef patties, two slices of American cheese, two layers of thick-cut Applewood Smoked bacon, along with lettuce, tomato, and mayo. The sandwich is available as part of a $5 deal along with fries, four piece nuggets, and a drink.
For a limited time, Arby’s is offering Bourbon BBQ versions of some of their sandwiches. The sandwich is available with turkey, brisket, streak, or all three meats together in a holy trinity of protein. The sandwich is dressed with brown sugar bacon, Kentucky bourbon BBQ sauce, crispy onions, and smoked cheddar cheese on a star cut bun.
After changing the recipe of their Crispy Chicken Sandwich (review) earlier this year, Burger King has been focused on pushing their chicken sandwiches. Burger King’s current national advertising campaign is focused on promoting the Bacon Cheddar Ranch Crispy Chicken Sandwich. Although this item is not new, (here is a commercial featuring Darius Rucker singing about the sandwich from 2004) Burger King has been running a considerable number of advertisements for it so I decided to review the revamped version.
Taco Bell’s new Naked Chicken Chips are chicken nugget-esque pieces of chicken that uses chicken almost identical to that used on past Naked Chicken products, such as the Naked Chicken Chalupa. The Chicken Chips come in a 6-pack alongside one cup of nacho cheese for $1.99 and a 12-pack along with two cups of nacho cheese for $3.99. The 6-pack can also be found in a new $5 box alongside a burrito supreme, a taco, and a medium drink.
Today after lunch I decided to stop by my local Sonic to try one of their new Custard Concretes. These new deserts combine a smooth custard with some type of candy topping. Sonic has six different standard offerings, and I chose the Banana Custard Concrete with Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.
McDonald’s has three new Signature Crafted Recipes sandwich options on their menu: Pico Guacamole, Sweet BBQ Bacon, and Maple Bacon Dijon.
Each option allows the consumer to pick their choice of protein: quarter pound beef patty, grilled chicken, or buttermilk crispy chicken. Consumers can also chose between a sesame seed or artisan bun.
The individual sandwich costs around $5.00 depending on your local McDonald’s.
We have reviews for all three sandwich options here:
Good morning, afternoon, evening or night to all. Here we are again for another high quality review of a “high quality” sandwich. I must say, I’ve been looking forward to reviewing this bad boy for quite a few, days? Hours? Either way, when McDonald’s announced their new artisan sandwiches I was brimming with excitement. I was an enormous fan of the old Angus burgers that McDiddy dons used to sell, and I was happy to hear they were bringing that style of burger (more appropriately “sandwich” as chicken is an option) back to the table.
Welcome to Taco Bell, home of the over-sized quasi-Mexican food. On Episode 8, we tackle the not large, not extra-large, but XXL (also coincidentally your waste size if you decided to make this your go-to item) Grilled Stuft Burrito. Coming in at an XXL price of $4.59, this standard menu item promises to deliver mounds of seasoned beef, shredded three cheese blend, refried beans, Latin rice, reduced-fat sour cream, guacamole, avocado ranch, and pico-de-gallo.

The Sweet BBQ Bacon sandwich is one of three new signature crafted recipes offered by McDonald’s, with the other two being the Maple Bacon Dijon and Pico Guacamole. The sandwich can be ordered with either a 1/4 pound beef patty, crispy buttermilk chicken, or grilled chicken along with a choice of an artisan or sesame seed bun. The cost at my local McDonald’s was $4.99 for just the sandwich and $6.99 for a combo meal featuring an order of medium fries and a large drink. From May 4th until May 8th, the sandwich can be bought with a free order of medium fries and a drink at participating McDonald’s restaurants. The Sweet BBQ Bacon sandwich features white cheddar cheese, smoked Applewood bacon, crispy onions, grilled sweet onions, and sweet onion barbecue sauce.
