Have You Tried The Wendy's Pick 2 Meal For $4.99 Yet? (Plus A GIVEAWAY!!)

Last week, I had the huge honor of being invited to a mommy blogger event hosted by Wendy's and TheMotherhood. Even cooler than that, I got to invite 2 friends, so I asked my mom and hubby to join me. Kids were welcome to tag along, so my son got to join us as well!

So, our mission was to try to order from the new Wendy's Pick 2 campaign. With the Pick 2 (for $4.99!!!!!) menu option, first you pick your favorite, out of 4, Wendy's salads; in a half size. You can choose from:

Spicy Chicken Caesar Salad, Baja Salad, Apple Pecan Chicken Salad, and the BLT Cobb Salad.

Next you add your choice of one, out of 7 smaller sides. A fountain drink, Dasani water, a baked potato, Wendy's Bowl of Chili, a Frosty, a Jr. Bacon Cheeseburger or a Chicken Go Wrap. Did I mention this was for $4.99!!!

I had a tough time deciding between the Spicy Chicken Caesar Salad and the Apple Pecan Chicken Salad, but the Caesar won. I paired it with a Jr. Bacon Cheeseburger (I couldn't resist!!) and also ordered a Coke. Wow, what a wonderful and very filling lunch! The salad and drink alone would have been enough, the 1/2 size salad portion is still very generous and very filling alone.

What I love about the Spicy Chicken Caesar Salad is: it's not "too" hot and spicy, the dressing amount portion was very appropriate, keeping those calories down! I tend to use way too much dressing if I don't measure it. Plus, I can't say enough about the huge 1" x .5" chunks of shaved Asiago cheese. Yes, it's true...I love cheese! My Jr. Bacon Cheeseburger was perfect, as always...

Hubby said the Baja Salad was perfect and my mom (who also tried the Spicy Chicken Caesar and loved it) raved about her bowl of Chili. For "fast food" chili, she was very impressed. This is from a women who makes homemade chili quite often. :)

Overall, we had a great time. Did I mention the Pick 2 is only $4.99?? Dine-in taste and quality, for fast food price and convenience (you know, after that late soccer game...) What a deal!! My little man enjoyed a Wendy's Kids Meal while we waited to order our Pick 2 Lunch, isn't he cute chewing away?
The staff was awesome dealing with our large group of moms, friends and kids. Not to mention the manager on duty was terrific. I was impressed that he was "working" the dining room, doing table visits, checking on food taste and quality, etc. That's always a nice thing to see in a fast food establishment. Plus, for me getting to see other bloggers face to face was really fun. It was a happy day!!

Now, here's the fun part for you!! Would you like to try your own Wendy's Pick 2 lunch or dinner? Well, I'm giving away one $7 Gift Card to Wendy's! Here's how to win:
