Wendy's Is Launching 2 New Lunch Items & a Lemonade Next Week

Think of Wendy's, and menu items like signature square burgers, fried chicken sandwiches, and the famous Frosty are likely what comes to mind. But with spring and its promises of warmer weather finally here, the chain could become the go-to option for customers who are starting to crave lighter, more refreshing fare.

Wendy's has just announced that it will launch three brand-new menu items—Grilled Chicken Ranch Wrap, Grilled Chicken Cobb Salad, and a Blueberry Pomegranate Lemonade—at stores nationwide. The items will be available starting on March 28, giving hungry customers two new options for a quick, light lunch and a drink to wash it all down.

The Grilled Chicken Ranch Wrap features diced grilled chicken, shredded cheddar cheese, romaine lettuce, and a creamy ranch sauce wrapped in a warm flour tortilla. Emily Kessler, manager of culinary innovation at Wendy's, said that a lot of time and thought specifically went into developing the ranch that graces this new offering.

"Ranch is a favorite among our customers, so we searched far and wide to find that perfect balance between buttermilk and savory herbs to deliver the best ranch possible in the business," Kessler said.

Meanwhile, the new Grilled Chicken Cobb Salad features Applewood-smoked bacon, diced tomatoes, grilled chicken, crispy fried onions, and diced egg. For longtime Wendy's fans, this new option may bring back memories of the BLT Cobb Salad that the brand introduced in 2010 but has since pulled from menus. It also featured chicken, bacon, tomatoes, and chopped egg, but differentiated itself slightly from the new salad with blue cheese crumbles and an avocado ranch dressing.

Last but not least, the Blueberry Pomegranate Lemonade is a new spin on Wendy's classic lemonade with an eye-popping purplish hue. Fruit purees in Wendy's lemonade base give this drink blueberry and tart pomegranate notes, according to John Li, vice president of culinary innovation.

"We are always listening to our fans and introducing exciting new menu items to give them exactly what they are craving," Carl Loredo, global chief marketing officer for Wendy's, said in a statement. "Our Dave's Craft Lemonades have been a fan-favorite menu item for years, and our all-natural lemonade foundation allows us to bring flavor innovation like no one else in the business. We're excited to kick off the season and give our passionate fans another irresistibly delicious flavor with Blueberry Pomegranate Lemonade."

While Wendy's has just officially announced the debut of these three new items, customers got a sneak peek at the products when an apparent company memo detailing their launch leaked on Reddit last month.

The upcoming launch of the wrap, salad, and lemonade will come about a month after the fast food chain brought back its Crispy Panko Fish Sandwich just in time for the start of Lent. It also debuted its famous chili in grocery stores for the first time in February.

These 5 Grocery Items Are Cheaper Than Ever Right Now

The grocery industry has been facing major disruptions. The combined effects of the pandemic, climate change, and economic uncertainty over the past couple of years have culminated in a series of supply chain breakdowns. For the consumer, this means supply shortages , shipping delays , and temporary store closures are becoming more commonplace – and all of the added production cost to suppliers is driving up food prices . The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics' Consumer Price Index report for January 2022 was released on Feb. 9, and it tells the story of cost trends for every spending category over the past year. Now the numbers are in, and since January 2021, "food at home" spending has increased 7.4%. Consumers should use this number as a benchmark, Phil Lempert, the consumer behavior analyst and founder behind Supermarket Guru , told Eat This, Not That! "Anything that's substantially less [than the 7.4% increase] is a deal," said Lempert. "When you

When Should I Take Creatine?

Creatine is probably the most well-researched supplement on the market today. Numerous studies have found positive adaptations in strength, power and muscle mass thanks to creatine supplementation—especially when it's combined with resistance training. Although the benefits of creatine are well-known to lifters, the best time to take it isn't common knowledge. Which leads us to some important questions:     Does an optimal time for consuming creatine exist?     If it does, should you take it before or after your workout? According to a new study published in the Journal of Exercise and Nutrition, the timing of creatine ingestion does indeed play a role in getting bigger and stronger. Creatine supplementation before resistance training increases muscular strength and lean muscle mass. Interestingly, taking creatine immediately after lifting weights results in greater muscle growth than taking it immediately before. However, in terms of strength gains, no difference betw

At the time, we were bombarded with (admittedly, very helpful) advice on how to cope with anxiety , should we experience it during this time of social distancing and sheltering in place. But with restrictions slowly starting to ease in many parts of the world, there are many people who have seen an increase in anxiety all over again, this time about leaving their homes and reentering society. Posts about people's growing anxiety have been popping up around social media for the past couple of weeks, and it's given rise to the term "reentry anxiety." We wanted to find out exactly what reentry anxiety is, whether it's normal to be experiencing trepidation about leaving your stay-at-home orders, and how to cope if you are feeling anxious.
