Wendy's New Combo Sizes

Yesterday I went to Wendy's for lunch. I was last there in early December. I found that in addition to all of the combo prices increasing by 10 cents and the 3/4 lb. Triple w/Cheese combo increasing by 20 cents, they played around with the combo sizes. Previously, all Wendy's combos came with a medium side and a medium drink. A large side and a large drink was $0.59 extra. Now, there are three sizes, the largest being massive!

Small (same as old medium) - included in combo price
Medium (same as old large) - add $0.69
Large (new) - add $1.09

I ordered a 3/4 lb. Triple w/Cheese Combo with the large coke and fries.
8.39 + 1.09 = 9.48 + 5% GST = $9.95 That is expensive for one person at a fast food restaraunt. The large fountain soft drink cups are huge! Must be at least 1L, they are plastic like 7-Eleven's Big Gulps. The Large fries are twice the size of the old large fries, i'd say half a kilo. Canadians are going to get sick like the Americans. As if the old large (now Medium) wasen't big enough. I will be getting medium for my Wendy's combos now... and I am a big eater.

You order a 3/4 lb burger and super size it and you blame the store for this??

There are many better options, even at stores like Wendies.

Why would we get sick like Americans unless we upsize our current meals? Just because the size has changed doesn't mean we can't order a "small/medium" anymore. Makes no sense unless you're absolutely intent on eating a "medium" fries and drinking a "medium" soft drink regardless of volume.

Siefer999,

There is no real "hubbub" at Wendy's. Only the option of getting a MASSIVE fountain soft drink (1L +) and MASSIVE fries (1/2 kg). And of course, newly inflated prices for just about everything on their menu.

That's awesome! I can now upsize my combo and it'll feed the two of us, instead of having to order two regular-size combos! :cheesygri

It's the same size as ever, you just think its the same size as before because of the red container the fries are in.

Now the large is the OLD red container, with a yellow stripe on the side
