You’ve seen the commercials for the Wendy’s Pretzel Pub Chicken Sandwich, right? It looks good. Or at least interesting. I saw it one late night when I was drunk and immediately emailed the publicist that had just wrote me about it. I said I want it and she said okay. It was that easy. I’ve never asked before. I didn’t know you could do that.
So I got $5 gift card in the mail. Headed over to the Wendy’s on 5th Ave near the Empire State building, but it was so packed. The line was insane. The next day, I went to the one on 14th St near Union Square. No line. I walked right up to the cashier.
Unfortunately, the sandwich alone was about $6 after tax. I guess that’s Manhattan pricing. So I owed a dollar. But it was weird, because I got a bunch of change back from the coin dispenser.
I sat in Union Square and opened it up. Looked good. The pretzel bread was soft and had a crusty bottom. Tasted almost like Chinese bakery bun bread. Not so much like how I imagined a pretzel bun would taste like. But it was a really good sandwich. I like it a lot. Seemed like quality ingredients. Sauce was tasty. A really good chicken sandwich.
I’m already a big of Wendy’s Spicy Chicken Sandwich. Had it very often in college. I should try the Pretzel Pub with Spicy Chicken next time.
