The chicken sandwich competition continues as Wendy’s has dropped its latest creation: the Jalapeno Popper Chicken Sandwich and the new Jalapeno Popper Chicken Salad. These new items join their recently updated chicken lineup, which includes: Spicy Chicken, Classic Chicken and Pretzel Bacon Pub Chicken sandwiches.
Of course, with so much excitement going on, Wendy’s is also having a little fun at their competition’s expense. Namely, Wendy’s has fired a direct shot at McDonald’s with its new release. “While everyone else is playing catch up and distracting consumers with stale chicken drops,” Wendy’s chief marketing officer Carl Loredo says in a statement, “We are listening and bringing exciting flavors and bold ingredients forward to help fans avoid the McStake of settling for the same boring chicken sandwiches from other fast-food joints.”
So what makes the Wendy’s Jalapeno Popper Chicken Sandwich different? Their spicy chicken filet is topped with creamy jalapeno cream cheese and sliced jalapenos and it’s served on a toasted bun with Applewood-smoked bacon, cheddar and pepper-jack cheese.
