Wendy's New PICK 2 Menu is Pretty Fab!
Wendy’s in Lawndale, CA… AHHHHH!!!

I’m not gonna lie… I haven’t been to Wendy’s in a while. Not because I dislike Wendy’s but mainly because my family and I don’t eat a lot of fast food. When I do, I’m on the road and other fast food chains are more common and easier to find. However, I do like Wendy’s and I think they are one of the best national fast food chains. They offer a wide variety of non-fried items and have for a long time. Long before the “healthy” craze hit the fast food industry, Wendy’s was offering baked potatoes, once had salad bars and of course, their signature chili. Also, their beef is never frozen and you can taste the difference.

This week, I was invited to try Wendy’s new Pick 2 Menu and I must say, I was really impressed and left Wendy’s happily full and satisfied. The Pick 2 Menu is a great way to portion control and save money if you eat out a lot. The Pick 2 menu is divided into two sections and you pick one item from each section to make your own combo. You can have a fulfilling lunch for only $4.99 going healthy one day, go for the grease the next time and mix it up on the days you want to.

I picked it!

The menus include items such as a cheeseburger, a cup of chili, a Frosty, a soda, French fries, a baked potato, Chicken Go Wraps and half servings of their premium salads and it’s actually possible to make 28 different combinations in all!

I treated myself to a cup of chili and the new Apple Pecan Chicken Salad and I LOVED IT! The chili has been consistent for years. It was a good portion but not too much and came with crackers but the salad! Oh the salad! It was really REALLY good – mixed field greens (not just iceberg lettuce), grilled chicken, diced red and green apples, cranberries, roasted pecans, blue cheese crumbles and a pomegranate vinaigrette. My friend, Marsha (aka SweatpantsMom), had the BLT Cobb Salad and it looked equally as yum.

Can you tell I’m left handed?

At this point, I want to disclose that I worked with Wendy’s and TheMotherhood.com and I received a small stipend to try the Pick 2 Menu.I know there is a fair amount of debate in the bloggersphere about whether a blogger will write a fair review if they are receiving compensation. Listen, I’m not blowing sunshine up your fast food hole. I get paid whether I write something nice or not and I have no motivation to lie about the food. It really was good and I would definitely eat off the Pick 2 Menu again and tell other people about it. In fact, I’m telling you right now!
