Test #129: Bacon and BACONATOR

The subject
Wendy, you big tease. You boast that the so-called Baconator is "piled high" with six strips of bacon. We fall for your come-on, only to lift your bun and count only five strips--each half the length of your average bacon strip, one half the width, and all as pathetically thin as tissue paper. How could our beloved bacon help but be overpowered by the two 1/4-lb. beef patties, two shingles of cheese, and the too-large bun? You might as well call this sandwich the Baconhater, because that's the kind of treatment you're showing salted meat with this disappointing display.

Oh, well, we know how to make things right--we wrapped one of these babies with six long, thick strips of REAL bacon (not that crap you're using) and popped it in the oven.

The result
The bacon-wrapped Baconator might be one of the most beautiful things we've ever set our eyes on--look at the oven-browned strips of loveliness gracing the bun. During the consumption phase, we were delighted to find out the new-and-improved Baconator tasted as wonderful as it looked--the only problem, the intensity proved to be too much even for our bacon-tempered constitutions, and we could only consume a fraction of the sandwich (which weighed nearly a full pound). In the first time in the history of BDJ--leftovers! We're greatly looking forward to our lunch break later today to dispatch of the remains.

The conclusion: Bacon + Wendy's Baconator = F*CK, YEAH!

Sunday: A Very Special Bacon Bit
Monday: Bacon + Marshmallow Peeps


  1. I know, right? Didn't even try figuring out the fat/calorie content on this one--it HAS to be off the charts. We tried it, so you don't have to.

  2. I usually avoid any place that claims to have some super bacon burger... they always lie! I always ask for a bun, lettuce, tomato, pickles, and tell them to hit the little BACON button on the register 15 times (usually gets you 30-45 little strips of bacon). THAT's what you call a Baconator. They always ask, "do you want the meat patty on the side?" and I always say "give it back to the cow."
