I’ve been a fan of Wendy’s Spicy Chicken sandwich since college. Ate it all the time. It’s a good quality piece of chicken for fast food.

Now I tried their new Jalapeño Fresco Spicy Chicken sandwich (spicy chicken breast topped with fresh, diced jalapeños, ghost pepper sauce, Colby pepper jack cheese all on a red jalapeno bun). I never expect when fast food chains say things are spicy to actually be spicy. Even with words like “Ghost Pepper” in their ingredients, it tends to be very much toned down. But the Jalapeño Fresco Spicy Chicken sandwich is spicy. I was sweating a bit. Probably not as spicy as what I think Ghost Pepper/Bhut Jolokia (the world’s hottest natural-grown chili pepper) should be like, but it is the spiciest food I’ve had from a fast food chain. It’s great!

I don’t know about the bun though. I took one half off when I ate it –open-faced. But that’s only because I’m trying to low-carb. I didn’t realize it was a jalapeno bun when I ate it. I should’ve tasted it by itself to see how spicy it was.
