American fast food restaurant chain Wendy’s has announced the launch of the new Pretzel Baconator for the 2023 holiday season.

Available for a limited time, the Pretzel Baconator is Wendy’s newest addition to its Baconator family.

It will be rolled out across all Wendy’s locations in the US from 29 November 2023.

The Pretzel Baconator starts with a half-pound of grilled beef topped with American cheese and six strips of applewood smoked bacon and is finished with ketchup and mayonnaise between two warm pretzel buns.

Wendy’s US chief marketing officer Lindsay Radkoski stated: “Our fans’ adoration for the pretzel bun inspired our newest twist on a Wendy’s classic created for pretzel lovers and bacon fanatics alike.

“This time of year, we know our customers crave satisfying, comfort food they can rely on – enter the Pretzel Baconator, a flavourful addition to our beloved Baconator line-up.”
