For many months, the success of Popeyes' chicken sandwich has led to a war between food chains to win the top spot. How can you try the new, extra-spicy chicken sandwich that Wendy’s is launching this week for free?
Around the end of last year, Wendy's joined the chicken sandwich wars with the debut of its Classic Chicken Sandwich, but the international fast- food restaurant chain founded by Dave Thomas isn't resting.
On Wednesday, on the chain's Twitter account, it announced a new, extra-spicy chicken sandwich that will seek to compete for the crown.
On February 18, Wendy's introduced two all-new menu additions: the Jalapeño Popper Chicken Sandwich and the Jalapeño Popper Chicken Salad.
The sandwich, which features the chain's spicy chicken, comes topped with a jalapeño cream cheese, Applewood smoked bacon, and warm cheddar cheese along with jalapeño slices, pepper jack cheese, and a premium bun.
The salad also has spicy chicken, bacon, jalapeños, and shredded pepper jack with diced tomatoes, jalapeño cheddar croutons, and a jalapeño ranch dressing, according to a spokesperson.
So we can try the sandwich for free, Wendy's has partnered with Grubhub, and through February 21, you can score the new menu item when you place an order totaling $15 or more.
"Whether you’re craving a Classic Chicken Sandwich or in the mood for a chicken sandwich that packs a punch of bold flavor like our beloved Spicy Chicken Sandwich or the new Jalapeño Popper Chicken Sandwich, Wendy’s exceptional chicken lineup delivers delicious quality and choice fans can’t get anywhere else," said a rep for the chain to Thrillist.
