Eating an Entire Value Menu from Wendy’s in 20 Minutes

At the peak of training for the Ironman Arizona, I had a pretty ridiculous appetite due to the volume of training going on. Although I never had the opportunity to try to take down the Ultimate Cheesesteak Challenge at Tony Luke’s, I did get the chance to try a few eating stunts and pretend I was trying to qualify for Wing Bowl.
During a lunch break a couple of months ago, a few co-workers and I headed out to Wendy’s for lunch. I had always wanted to see what it was like to eat an entire value menu from a fast food restaurant and this was the perfect time to give it a shot. Unfortunately, times are tough so the value menus have shrunk considerably compared to a few years ago.
From the menu above, you can see that there isn’t that much food on the value menu for Wendy’s. When I told the cashier I wanted everything on the value menu, he seemed more confused on how to type it all in rather than the motivation behind eating an entire value menu for lunch. It turned out Wendy’s was out of the baked potato so I subbed in a Chili and a Chicken Go Wrap to make it equal.
The order consisted of:
  • Regular Size Chili
  • Chicken Go Wrap
  • Double Stack Cheeseburger
  • Crispy Chicken Sandwich
  • 5-pc Chicken Nuggets
  • Value Sized Fries
  • Medium Frosty
  • Medium Diet Coke
Here’s how it went down:
The full order
5 minutes in: Crispy Chicken Sandwich, Chicken Go Wrap, Chicken Nuggets, and some fries done
10 minutes in: Half of Chili, half of doublestack, and most fries done
13 minutes in: Everything done but Frosty and Drink
20 minutes: All Finished!
So there it it, eating an entire Value Menu in 20 minutes. Again, I’ll admit it was not that much food but it was cool to say I’ve done it and cross it off the list.
