Menu Tracker: Tasting new items from restaurants including Wendy’s, Wingstop, and Popeyes

Senior food and beverage editor Bret Thorn walks viewers through what he thinks of some new items on menus across the country


In this month’s edition of Menu Tracker’s video series, senior food and beverage editor Bret Thorn tried several different menu items, some that were spicy and some that were sweet.

This monthly series focuses on the menu items featured in the weekly Menu Tracker column and has NRN’s own Thorn as the taste-tester.

On this episode of Menu Tracker the video, you’ll see Thorn taste:

  • Wendy’s Peppermint Frosty, which is traditional vanilla ice cream shake with peppermint flavor and is available for an unspecified limited time;
  • Wingstop’s Maple Sriracha Sauce which is a sweet and spicy sauce available with any sandwiches, wings, or tenders, included in the price of the entrée and is available for an unspecified limited time; and
  • Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen’s Spicy Truff Chicken Sandwich made with breaded and fried chicken breast with pickles and Truff Spicy Mayo on a brioche bun and available for an unspecified limited time.

Watch the video to see all of Thorn’s reactions.
