Pretzel Bacon Burger - Wendy's : Pennsauken, NJ

Pretzel Bacon Burger
- Wendy's : Pennsauken, NJ
Meet my latest junk food addiction.
I rarely eat fast food, but when I do it's either Wendy's or White Castle. I haven't had McDonalds since I saw Supersize Me in the early 2000's, and I haven't had Chick-fil-a since their big anti-gay marriage scandal.  Since my beloved White Castle is an hour away in Toms River, Wendy's has become my go-to fast food joint.

Since fast food is typically not much to look at, I'll skip the aesthetics and get right into the review.

On it's own, the pretzel bun was soft, but it wasn't very pretzel-y. It had that chewy exterior that homemade soft pretzels have, which comes from boiling them in water with lye or baking soda, but the flavoring was kind of like a potato roll mixed with a burger bun. Not bad by any means, but it wasn't quite the pretzel bun I was expecting. Also there was no added salt on top, which is great because the burger itself is pretty salty.
Inside are the classic burger fixings, lettuce, tomato, red onion, cheddar cheese and bacon. The veggies were actually really fresh and crisp. I'm impressed Wendy's. You're really stepping up your game. This tastes like a real burger, with real ingredients and everything!
Does the bun taste like a soft pretzel? Not really, but the overall burger tastes great. I hope this isn't a novelty item and the pretzel burger is here to stay. (Then again I'm a sucker for burgers and fries. Just look at the ones I have already reviewed.)
