Wendy's Ghost Pepper Fries And Jalapeno Fresco Spicy Chicken Review

These two new items are a limited time offering. One was worth it and the other one was a complete waste.

For me the prince of the Sandwich alone was 5.79 while the fries were 1.99 alone. The Sandwich in a combo for me was 7.99 while for 50 cents more you can upgrade to the special fries.

ONTO the Ghost Pepper Fries

The Fries came in a plastic container with fresh-diced jalapeños, our signature ghost pepper sauce and melty shredded cheddar.

Well it did have the Jalapenos and cheddar, But could not taste NO ghost pepper at all. This item was so weakly flavored it had less heat than the failure of a Popeye's item I recently reviewed.

A thumbs down from me and something you need to skip!!!

Onto the Jalapeno Fresco Spicy Chicken...

This new sandwich included a classic spicy chicken breast, fresh-diced jalapeños, ghost pepper sauce, colby pepper jack cheese, and a red jalapeño bun.

I thought all the extra ingredients were a nice addition while the Ghost Pepper sauce was just non existent.

Heat level here was not bad, but I would have liked more heat.

I will give this item a medium sized thumbs up and something to try. I do not think this needs to be a permanent item on the menu though.

I did though have to blow my nose after the end of the meal. I did also have some light afterburn that did last for a few minutes.

I do feel that the corporate people at Wendy's who created these products did NOT even eat a Ghost pepper or even went through a SHU Test to make sure the product was spicy enough.

Have you had your habanero pepper today????
The hotter the pepper, the better the pepper!!!
