New Wendy’s Hot Honey Chicken Biscuit Breakfast Sandwich
On February 8th, 2022, Wendy’s launched a new breakfast sandwich nationwide — a hot honey and habanero flavored chicken buttermilk biscuit. This is the fast food chain’s first addition to its breakfast menu that it launched a few weeks before the pandemic in 2020.
According to a February 2, 2022 press release, Carl Loredo, Wendy’s chief marketing officer said that the company was trying to blend the sweetness of honey with a kick of fiery habanero in their new breakfast offering.
“Others may do chicken sandwiches, but at Wendy’s we actually craft chicken sandwiches with flavor,” Loredo said in the press release. “As the Queen of Spice, we’re constantly looking for new ways to upgrade our already famous spicy chicken sandwich, and our talented culinary team knew we could bring the Hot Honey trend to the table in a way no one else could.”
What We Think Of Wendy’s Hot Honey Chicken Biscuit
Actually, nothing could be further from the truth with Wendy’s new sweet-n-spicy chicken biscuit offering. It is all sweet and no spice. We tried it out from a location in the Northeastern US, along with their honey butter biscuits (plain) and Seasoned Potatoes (with cracked black pepper and garlic powder).
The hot honey chicken biscuit was a big miss on spiciness and overall taste. It is almost impossible to taste any of the habanero spice. The most dominant flavor is the sweetness of the honey. What is worse is that the fried chicken fillet is dry. And so is the biscuit.
A biscuit this dry is better suited with creamy white sausage gravy. Not on its own in a breakfast sandwich like this one. We were disappointed in this new offering from Wendy’s. On the other hand, the Seasoned Potatoes were a refreshing twist of pepper and garlic. Too bad there is nothing else from Wendy’s breakfast menu to pair it with.
Video Review Of Wendy’s Hot Honey Chicken Biscuit
You can watch our quick video take on the Hot Honey Chicken Biscuit from Wendy’s here. See for yourself why the offering has little appeal. Even on screen, the supposedly spicy chicken biscuit appears unappealing and dry. All honey and no habanero spicy kick. Designed to please those who favor sweetness to spiciness.
If you want to still try it out, the Hot Honey Chicken Biscuit is available nationwide for $3.19 during breakfast hours.
