Kiwis love bacon and Wendy's number one selling burger the Baconator is back. This time, with an award-winning sauce for those who like their bacon with a hit of heat.
Here for a limited time, Wendy's new 'Dragonator' takes its name from Baxter's Original's fiery Dragon's Breath sauce. Awarded the title of World Champion BBQ sauce at the World Hot Sauce Awards in 2017, the Wellington sauce makers say it is the hottest BBQ sauce you can get in New Zealand.
"It's for those who like some fire in their meal with heaps of flavour," says Baxter's Original's Berrin Moody. "The heat is not apparent at first but builds gradually without overpowering the burger's other ingredients". Two fresh large New Zealand beef patties, natural Colby cheese and four slices of Wendy's thick cut Manuka smoked streaky bacon complete this generous burger.
For those who prefer a more subtle kick, this year's Baconator line-up also includes the new 'Jamaicanator'. With a warming, flavourful Jamaican Jerk sauce, this time from Canterbury's Barkers of Geraldine, the aromatic spices and a hint of habanero so often matched with chicken help add a Caribbean vibe to the burger's two fresh whole chicken breasts, Colby cheese, mayo and four slices of thick-cut Manuka smoked bacon.
Also back by popular demand is the 'Cheesanator' which comes oozing with melty cheese and bacon sauce and extra Colby cheese, and 'Dragonator Fries', a generous serve of thick cut fries topped with cheese sauce, grated cheese, bacon and Dragonator sauce.
Available on the Wendy's app and at Wendy's restaurants nationwide from Monday May 20. The Wendy's app is available for download via the App Store or Google Play.
