Fast food chains across the great USA are amping up their menus just in time for Spring with a slew of new additions from turkey burgers to chicken wraps. In a recent article reported by the Nation’s Restaurant News, joints like Burger King, Hardees/Carl’s Jr, Wendy’s, Chipotle, and McDonalds are all launching new menus for warmer weather drive thru enjoyment. About a week ago Hardees and Carl’s Jr rolled out their Jim Beam Bourbon Burger which is topped with a Jim Beam-flavored sauce, crispy onion straws, bacon, pepper Jack cheese, lettuce, and tomato. The boozy double-hander is also notably being repped by super model Heidi Klum, with the tagline “A mature burger for mature tastes.” Ads feature Klum (who turns 40 this year) in a Mrs. Robinson-esque role from The Graduate, where she “seduces a younger man with the indulgent burger.”
Here’s a list of some of the menu items coming out in the next few weeks and the fast food places where you can find each of them:
McDonalds: Egg white delight (whole-grain English muffin, egg whites, Canadian bacon, and a slice of white Cheddar; available April 22)
Burger King: Turkey burger, Bacon Cheddar Stuffed Burger, Loaded Tater Tots, a Chipotle Chicken Sandwich or Wrap, the Chipotle Whopper.
Wendy’s: Five-grain Flatbread sandwiches including Asiago Ranch with grilled chicken, ranch dressing, bacon, tomato and shaved Asiago cheese, and Smoky Honey Mustard with grilled chicken, honey mustard, tomato, and greens.
