Wendy’s Spicy Chicken Nuggets are back and all it took to make that happen was getting two million Twitter users to like one tweet.

FAST FOOD NEWS: Sonic Extra-Long Philly Cheesesteak

News  Sonic Extra Long Philly Cheesesteak

I don’t know what the differences are between Sonic’s new Extra-Long Philly Cheesesteak and the Footlong Philly Cheesesteak the chain rolled out last year. Both have grilled steak, onions, cheese sauce, and, for some reason, mayo in a footlong hot dog bun.

The only differences appear to be the name and price. The Extra-Long Philly Cheesesteak starts at $4.29, while last year the Footlong Philly Cheesesteak started at $3.99.

The cheesesteak in a hot dog bun has 670 calories, 41 grams of fat, 10 grams of saturated fat, 1 gram of trans fat, 55 milligrams of cholesterol, 1540 milligrams of sodium, 51 grams of carbohydrates, 3 grams of fiber, 8 grams of sugar, and 25 grams of protein.

Oh, and if extra long is too long for you, there’s also a 6-inch version.

If you’ve tried it, let us know what you think of it in the comments.
