We were invited to a Wendy’s blogger event this weekend and were unable to actually attend the event for personal reasons as a family. So we decided to have ourselves a quick picnic at home then I could still try the new Wendy’s Berry Almond Chicken Salad. Off to Wendy’s I went alone to purchase everything we needed for our picnic. A quick run through the drive through showed me they are very proud of their new Berry Almond Chicken Salad.
The new salad:
The new Berry Almond Chicken Salad was very good. I love salads with nuts and the Raspberry Vinaigrette that accompanied it made it even better. The blueberries aren’t however my cup of tea so I handed them off to the kids who LOVE fruit much more than I do. The Berry Almond Chicken Salad comes in two sizes, full and a half size and I found the half size to be just the right size for lunch. Of course, we also had a frosty to share and I had to save a little room for that. The Full size Berry Almond Chicken Salad has only 450 calories before adding the almonds and 50 calorie dressing pack. The half size has only 270 calories so you bet I put on all that dressing and the ENTIRE bag of almonds. MMMM, it was so good. Zoe loves fruit and I didn’t think she would want any but she said, mommy, next time we go to Wendy’s I want to eat that salad as my lunch. And I know she’ll eat it all.
Good food for the family and kids:
Not only is the salad option a possibility but Wendy’s also gave their kids meal a makeover. Wendy’s was always difficult for us to go to as a family because the kids meal came with a package of mandarin oranges and it made a mess. Now, it comes with apple slices, milk, or juice. So I’m really excited to be able take the kids there again.
Good fun for the family and kids:
Another change that came with Wendy’s Kids meals was their toys in the bag. The new minute to win it games that come in their kids meals are focusing on bringing kids and family together. Each game presented a new challenge and we all took turns playing each game. Zoe even tried to capture some of the fun with the little camera.
