Wendy’s introduced new Baconator Fries today. The new menu item contain a delicious blend of warm cheddar cheese sauce, freshly-cooked Applewood smoked bacon and shredded cheddar cheese drizzled over Wendy’s natural-cut fries. The suggested price for the bacon fries is $1.99.
Wendy’s will showcase the way bacon should be made on YouTube, Facebook and Twitter through a video series that will launch on July 6. These tongue-in-cheek “after-school” special videos tap into 90s nostalgia trends, entitled Bacon: Scared Straight. The videos will feature bacon puppets voiced over by decorated cartoon actor Billy West, one of the lead voice actors for the show Futurama and the talent behind other memorable characters like Woody the Woodpecker, Ren & Stempy and Doug Funny. Through these farcical videos, “at-risk” bacon teens will be warned of bacon-related dangers that might prevent them from becoming Baconator worthy.
