Wendy’s Pretzel bun is back!

The fast food franchise announced on Twitter Saturday they are bringing back the pretzel bun with the new Pretzel Bacon Pub Cheeseburger.

The burger includes a quarter-pound beef, Muenster cheese, three strips of Applewood smoked bacon, honey mustard, a warm beer cheese sauce, crispy fried onions, and pickles between two soft pretzel buns.

In addition, the burger pairs nicely with Bacon Pub Fries. These classic Homestyle Wendy’s fries come with Applewood smoked bacon, shredded cheddar cheese, and warm beer cheese sauce.

In a blog post, Wendy’s said it “went through 18 different revisions of the beer cheese sauce to “get that perfect amount of bitterness that compliments the other sweet and savory ingredients of the sandwich” and screened more than 10 beers. Finally, they decided to blend two beers from a local brewery.

Something seems a little salty

In the days leading up to the big announcement, Wendy’s fans took notice of the company dropping major hints on Twitter. One tweet teased, “Don’t get it twisted, our collar DOES NOT have a subliminal message!” The enlarged Wendy’s logo suddenly reveals a small pretzel in the middle of the collar.

“Like we did with Spicy Nuggets, we’ve been watching and listening as customers have been craving for us to bring Pretzel back,” said Carl Loredo, Wendy’s chief marketing officer, in a news report. “We married the fervor for our former pretzel bun with the increased love for gastropub-inspired flavors and created a cheeseburger that is, in a word, unforgettable.”

You can try this delicious burger now for $5.69. Chicken lovers can swap the beef for a Homestyle filet with the Pretzel Bacon Pub Chicken Sandwich, $6.19.

Wendy’s currently offers drive-thru service as well as no-contact pickup via mobile. Be sure to use the Wendy’s app to score rewards points.

Labor Day weekend, Sept. 4, through Sept. 7, get the burger free with any Wendy’s delivery purchase over $15 on Postmates. Use the code PRETZEL during checkout.
