Wendy s Made to Crave

Wendy’s has added a new line of cheeseburgers to its menu that has a name that might make White Castle’s marketing folks a little upset. Wendy’s Made to Crave features three items — S’Awesome Bacon Cheeseburger, Peppercorn Mushroom Melt, and Barbecue Cheeseburger.

The S’Awesome Bacon Cheeseburger made its debut last year. It’s made with fresh beef, two American cheese slices, three Applewood smoked bacon strips, iceberg lettuce, sweet onions, pickles, and Wendy’s Side of S’Awesome sauce on a premium bun. You can read our review by clicking here.

It has 690 calories, 42 grams of fat, 13 grams of saturated fat, 1.5 grams of trans fat, 95 milligrams of cholesterol, 1110 milligrams of sodium, 47 grams of carbohydrates, 4 grams of fiber, 7 grams of sugar, and 31 grams of protein.

Finally, the Barbecue Cheeseburger has 1/4 pound of beef, crispy fried onions, pickles, American cheese, and a sweet and smoky Kansas City-style barbecue sauce on a toasted bun.

  1. Tried the bacon cheeseburger, it was pretty decent, but nothing super memorable. Not that I really expect that from a fast food burger. The mushroom one looks pretty good, might give it a nosh at some point.

  2. I had the barbeque cheeseburger today. Really good, actually. The right amount of BBQ sauce, crispy onions, meat, and the pickles really set it off with a good snap. I’d get it again!
