Forgive me while I vent over the death of my favorite fast food sandwich of all time, the Wendy's Spicy Chicken Sandwich.
Don't be mistaken, the sandwich still exists. I choked one down a mere moments ago. But it was the last until Wendy's rights the wrong they have committed. Give me back my bun!!!
I knew things would never be the same once Wendy's got purchased by those Arby's sons of bitches. But to my surprise, Wendy's stayed strong and kept providing me with stellar spicy chicken sandwiches. Until Tuesday night. Tuesday night, I stopped to grab one on the way home and something wasn't right. The bun was just...meh. I chalked it up to stopping late and probably getting something I don't even want to know about. Cut to today and the first day of non-catered lunch this week. Cut to today and my second awful spicy chicken. It's the same damn bun. And if you don't think the bun is that big of a deal, please look at that picture above again. Shit's like all bun. Why do you all of the sudden just change a bun?
Apparently because you've got a REAL shitty new ad campaign. I know it's real when I taste my favorite sandwich for the past decade and want to spit it out. I'm not sure why trying to re-brand your burgers to keep up with everyone else means putting the new hamburger bun on your chicken sandwiches. Wendy's, you've gone and taken a big crap on my heart, which is actually pretty psyched at the news I won't be eating these anymore.
So yeah, Wendy's has new buns. I think they taste like crap and have a sticky-ish texture. They will be retaining the old, familiar buns for small sandwiches like the Jr Bacon and such.
