Summer and barbecue have always gone together, well, like summer and barbecue. But this year, it seems fast food chains are eager to latch onto the trend. On the burger side, Wendy’s is testing a cornbread bun brisket cheeseburger in Florida and Ohio, and when it comes to hot dogs, Wienerschnitzel’s new summer offerings are equally as south and grill-inspired.
We’re talking healthy dollops of barbecue sauce, bacon, and fried onion straws on the new BBQ Bacon Angus Dog and even heartier globs of blue cheese dressing and crumbles and grilled onions on the new Blue Cheese & Bacon Angus Dog. And in case that’s still not enough #TEXAS for you, the new items also come with their own Der Cowboy commercial. As in “HI-YO Schnitzel, AWAYYY!”
For anyone who prefers a little less weenie with their weiner, though, there’s also the old Angus Chicago Dog, featuring all the usual Chicago toppings like mustard, pickles, and peppers. Also, keep an eye out for their new chocolate and caramel ice cream treats, including a Chocolate Caramel Crunch Freeze and Caramel and Chocolate Caramel Dipped Taste Freez Cones. Pretty sweet.
