Food Review (Wendy's Asiago Ranch Flatbread)

Wendy's "new"est release is of the flatbread ... which seems to be a fairly popular thing now by a lot of fast food places. The Wendy's Asiago Ranch is ... ... good.

The problem with it is that it's not really new, outside of the bread that they use, and it's nothing new or spectacular. I guess Wendy's is trying to give an image that they're getting healthy, but a quick glance at the nutrition facts for these flatbreads will show just how "healthy" they truly are. Lots of fat, tons of sodium. This Asiago Ranch Flatbread is simply the Asiago Ranch chicken sandwich reassembled into a whole-grain flatbread. That's not a bad thing necessarily, but it is what it is.

The chicken is pictures as being a few slices of chicken, but I just got half of a grilled chicken filet thrown inside. I don't normally have grilled chicken at fast food places, but this was actually pretty tasty. The Asiago Ranch sauce (which I've had before) is as good as ever, even if it's a bit salty. The highlight is the bacon -- Wendy's has always had some of the best bacon in fast food, in my opinion.

Should you try it? Absolutely -- especially if you've never had the Asiago Ranch chicken sandwich. The contents slip and slide around when trying to eat it, so it's not something to eat while driving or something like that, but I still recommend it.
