Fast Times: Wendy's Premium Fish Sandwich Combo

Categories: Fast Times

Advertising got the best of me for this edition of Fast Times. How could it not? Wendy's is now offering a chance to "Get Hooked on a Real Fish Sandwich." That sounds like my kind of deal. I don't enjoy fake fish sandwiches.

I ordered the combo meal, which came with the fish sandwich, a small fountain drink, and a small order of fries. The entire meal came in at 980 calories (39 grams of fat). Expect next week's piece to feature a lot healthier item. This one needed a Lipitor chaser.

First, can someone please bring back those original Wendy's fries? I'm just not a fan of this natural-cut, sea salt version. Rest easy McDonald's, your fries still reign supreme.

But today, I'm here to focus on the fish sandwich.

It's a panko-crusted piece of cod. There was a nice crunch to the fish and, as expected, it had a mild taste. The tartar sauce was not good, and like most sandwiches at Wendy's, the big buns dominated a small piece of meat (insert joke). The lettuce did nothing for me, and neither did the price of this puny combo: $5.62.

Wendy's Premium Fish Sandwich Combo wasn't terrible, but given its high caloric value and small portion-size, it's probably seen the last of me. That's a good thing.

Call me nostalgaic, but I love the filet-o-fish sandwich. I only get it occasionally, but it brings back memories, and is just a good fast food burger. For those that scoff at that, try the fried catfish sandwich at Christian's Tailgate. Thank me later.

Holy flippin' A....980 calories for THAT? (Well, that, fries and a drink).

Not worth it for the gym time spent working it off.

I too dislike the fries. Unless to eat straight out ot the fryer they go south rapidly. The fish was dry and tastless. Nothing could revive it

I'm a mediocre Catholic, and I'm not impressed.
