The Surprising New Addition to Wendy’s Menu

An oft-overlooked burger variety has finally made its way onto Wendy's menus—in Ohio anyway.

Wendy’s, one of the few chains that haven’t jumped on the veggie burger bandwagon already, is currently testing a black bean burger in several of their locations in the Columbus, Ohio area. The sandwich comes on a multigrain bun and is finished with tomato slices, red onion, lettuce, Colby-pepper jack cheese and Asiago ranch sauce. While it doesn’t sound like the burger would be any worse for your waistline than a traditional burger with all the fixins, Wendy’s has yet to reveal any nutritional information. Healthy or not, the burger is building up quite a fan base! Wendy’s fans interested in trying the $4.50 vegetarian option are reportedly waiting up to 20 minutes to get their hands on one, which is practically unheard of in the world of fast food.

No official word yet if the burger will make its way to menus nationwide, but the menu item will be sticking around for the long haul if Jackass stuntman Steve-O has anything to say about it. He recently launched a Change.org campaign petitioning the fast-food giant to introduce a veggie burger. We’ll be following this story closely and bringing you updates as soon as we have more information about the fate of this mouthwatering bean burger.
