Wendy’s has officially begun the national rollout of its latest sandwich: the Pretzel Bacon Cheeseburger. Bet your mouth is watering already! The unique burger is made with warm cheddar cheese sauce, thick-sliced bacon, lettuce, tomatoes, red onion, smoky honey mustard and a pretzel bun. “This is the most anticipated new product in recent history,” said Craig Bahner, Wendy’s chief marketing officer. None of Wendy’s competitors are serving sandwiches on a pretzel bun, so for the moment they have cornered that market. But if you want to try one, you’d better hurry. Wendy’s Pretzel Bacon Cheeseburger is scheduled to disappear from menus at the end of the summer.
As someone who eats plenty of eggs, the higher prices have not slipped my attention. If you have been grocery shopping recently, or even checked social media, it’s pretty obvious that egg prices are soaring. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the average price of a dozen eggs rose 59% last year with prices more than doubling in West Virginia and six other states in the upper Midwest. This jump in price was even more shocking in the case of eggs classified grade A, with prices soaring up to almost 140%.
