The average American spends $151 on food per week, with young adults averaging $173 per week. If one cuts his weekly food spending in half, he would save approximately $22,300 over a five year period to buy a car or put a downpayment on a house. But, it’s 2018 and we live in a world with $15 salads and $9 avocado toasts. It’s difficult not to shell out for eats.
Wendy’s is here to help.
Starting on February 26, the famous burger chain is offering $1 Double Stacks. Made with Wendy’s signature never-frozen beef, the Double Stack features more than a ¼ lb. of beef on a warm bun and topped with a slice of American cheese, crunchy crinkle-cut dill pickles, fresh white onions, ketchup and mustard.
And before you start to feel guilty about eating a Wendy’s Double Stack for lunch on a weekday, consider this: the Double Stack has 390 calories and 1,070 mg of sodium. By comparison, The New York Times found that the “typical” Chipotle order–a meat burrito with cheese, salsa, lettuce, sour cream, rice, and beans–has a little more than 1,070 calories and has 2,400 mg of sodium. Consider yourself fasting when you take down a Double Stack. Throw in some nuggets if you really want to go wild.
The $1 Double Stack is at participating locations, while supplies last.
Go wild folks.
