If you’re a fan of bacon, you know there is no such thing as too much bacon. Wendy’s agrees, so much in fact that they have dedicated an entire celebration to the beloved crispy meat.
Wendy’s Baconfest does more than just celebrate bacon, however, as it also means free food for all the bacon lovers out there. Now through August 25, you can join in on celebrating all things bacon by enjoying free Baconator fries with any purchase. Just create a Wendy’s account and use their app to place your order. That’s it — the free fries are yours!
The coupon is good for one-time use only, but you can order anything you want to get the fries (which are covered in creamy cheese sauce, shredded cheddar, and crispy bacon!), including items on their value menu or, of course, more bacon. Go for a regular bacon cheeseburger or the Baconator burger, which comes with a half-pound of beef and six pieces of crispy bacon.
“As the number one seller of bacon cheeseburgers across the fast-food industry, no one does bacon like Wendy’s. You can call it an obsession and you’d be right,” said Carl Loredo, Wendy’s U.S. chief marketing officer, in a press release.
Wendy’s Baconfest doesn’t stop there, though. Through July 21, you can also get a free Jr. Bacon Cheeseburger if you purchase through DoorDash. You’ll get a $0 delivery fee if you buy a minimum of $10 worth of food from Wendy’s. Use code BACONFEST while checking out to get this deal.
If you want to continue celebrating bacon even after you get your free fries and burger, there are so many ways to honor the meat in new ways right at home. For example, consider new ways of cooking it. Have you thought about using an air fryer?
And of course, so many recipes utilize this favorite food. Try wrapping bacon around corn on the cob at your next barbecue or check out this recipe for one-pot creamy chicken and bacon pasta. All you need is penne pasta, chicken, bacon, tomatoes, spinach, half and half, parmesan cheese and some spices. You’ll only use one skillet, so not only is it quick and easy to throw together, but it won’t dirty many dishes either!
