Wendy’s is quietly making major changes to the most popular menu item for a very simple reason


Fast food giant Wendy’s has quietly made a huge change to its most popular item on the menu – and fans aren’t happy.

The major change to the 4 for $4 deal has not been publicly announced, but is now posted on Wendy’s website in the Meal Deals section.

The beloved offering previously came with a choice of tasty burgers.

And it was very popular because you could swap the single cheeseburger for a double at no extra cost – and you had a few sandwiches to choose from.

When customers ordered a 4 for $4, they could choose between a Junior Bacon Cheeseburger, the Crispy Chicken sandwich, the Doublestack, or a Junior Cheeseburger.

But now, customers will only be offered one choice of burger in the offer.

The silent change means Wendy’s is now only offering the 4 for $4 with a Junior Cheeseburger.

Thus, the offer now includes a Junior Cheeseburger, four-piece chicken nuggets, a Junior Fry and a quality drink.

Along with this major menu change, Wendy’s has brought back a fan-favorite offering – the $5 Biggie Bag.

This offer includes your choice of a Junior Bacon Cheeseburger, Double Stack, or Crispy Chicken BLT to go with your four-piece nuggets, small fries, and small drink.

The old version only included a Junior Bacon Cheeseburger with four piece chicken nuggets, small fries and a small drink.

Its new offer is therefore a step forward, offering a choice of sandwiches.

But that now means people who don’t want a Junior Cheeseburger in the 4 for $4 have to pay an extra $1 to get another sandwich option in the other offer.

It’s a move that doesn’t seem to be very popular with its customers.

One Wendy’s fan said: “Since when did a 4 for 4 at Wendy’s turn into a big $5 bag????”

Another wrote on social media, “You telling me @Wendys 4 for $4 is now 4 for $5???”

A third asked, “What is Joe Biden going to do to get @Wendys to remove the Jr. Bacon Cheeseburger from the 4for4.”

It should be noted that the $5 Biggie Bag has more fries and a larger soda than the 4 for $4.

By not completely removing the 4 for $4 from the menu, Wendy’s is managing to retain that price point while making it more profitable, reports The Street.

Fast food lovers had already been warned in March that Wendy’s burgers would become more expensive.

Rising inflation has pushed up the cost of beef and consumers will feel it in their pocketbooks.

According to the Consumer Price Index, prices at most fast food chains, including Wendy’s, have risen 7.1% since October 2021.

Wendy’s is one of a handful of companies offering incentives and perks in front of customers to try to help boost foot traffic and sales as soaring inflation squeezes consumers’ wallets.

Fans were offered triple Bonus Rewards points on all Wendy’s Biggie Bag purchases through April 24.

You can still grab a $5 Biggie Bag online, through the Wendy’s mobile app, or to eat at participating locations nationwide for a limited time.
