When it comes to hitting up my nearby go-to fast food places, I tend to gravitate to the same items mostly because it’s easier and I know what to expect. I like the fact that Wendy’s changes up their menu and tries different flavours and pairings to see what sticks. Right now they have a couple summer items including the new Strawberry Mango Chicken salad, Bacon Queso and some summer fruit drinks. One of my favourites in the past was their ghost pepper burgers, I hope they’ll bring that back eventually!

I wanted to share the top three items that I recommend on their menu right now during the summer. Some of these items are only for the season, so be sure to try them out before summer is over!


1. Strawberry Lemonade
Nothing is more refreshing than a tart and sweet beverage on these warm summer evenings. Wendy’s makes their Strawberry Lemonade with real strawberries, premium lemons and an all-natural lemonade.

2. Strawberry Mango Chicken Salad
I like Wendy’s salads a lot – I think they’re my favourite ones you can get from a fast food restaurant. Right now they have the Strawberry Mango chicken salad which is crunchy, refreshing, sweet and tart all at the same time. It’s perfect for hot summer nights when you can’t bear to eat anything too hot but want something filling and tasty!

3. Bacon Deluxe 1/4lb Single Burger
Ok so not really summer related but bacon is everything! Wendy’s piles on three Applewood Smoked Bacon on top of the 100% Canadian Beef and fresh tomato, red onion and lettuce you’ve come to expect from them. The bacon makes it that much better!
