Wendy’s Launched a New Black Bean Burger in Select Cities

A Wendy's black bean burger with lettuce, tomato, and onion.

There could be a new menu item coming to your local Wendy’s that vegetarians are sure to be excited about. While Impossible Burgers are taking over other fast-food menus, Wendy’s is introducing a black bean burger.

The new Spicy Black Bean Burger launched June 28 in select markets (specifically, Columbus, Ohio, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and Jacksonville, Florida). The burger features a black bean patty (duh) made with a variety of spices for a bit of a kick. It comes topped with crunchy chipotle jalapeños, pepper jack cheese, a spicy chipotle sauce, lettuce, tomato, and sweet onion on a toasted bun.

According to Carl Loredo, chief marketing officer at Wendy’s U.S., the new sandwich was created to give customers what they want, as he says in a press release,

“Consumers are demanding plant-based sandwiches,” Loredo said in a press release. “And we’re answering the call in a way that only Wendy’s can with a mouthwatering sandwich packed with multiple layers of heat and flavor.”

In the meantime, why not grill up some of the tastiest meat substitutes yourself?
