Three months after coming with their newest burger, the Hot 'N Juicy, Wendy's is releasing another burger, The W, in December. The burger will feature two 2.25-ounce patties, two slices of cheese, red onion, tomato, crinkle-cut pickles, and special sauce—looking like a smaller version of a double-patty Hot 'N Juicy. It will sell for $2.99, a price that falls between Wendy's value menu and the Hot 'N Juicy.
It's a completely different context, sure, but if there's anything that I want carrying the mantle of our humble message board, it's a big honkin' burger.
The TV spot just aired on Sunday Night Football. As soon as the YouTube link is ready, I'll go ahead and paste it.

Hmm....all their press releases stylize it as The "W" (quotes theirs). I also can't help but notice they're using the trademark notation for their graphic version. I'll have to consult our legal department and see if a Cease and Desist is in order... (although certain parties would probably surely settle for a few Baconators)

But would you trade the domain name for Baconators?
(I want my cut - Baconator rhymes with moderator, after all)

I had one of these last week and it was sickening. So I did what any rational person would do, post about it here, but the thread was closed. I sent the following missive to CRZ.
Originally posted by NickBockwinkelFan: I wanted to comment on "The W" from Wendy's, but I saw there was already a closed and locked thread on this subject. Nothing Earth-shattering, but this pitiful Big Mac ripoff has the most disgusting "special sauce" on record. It's the absolute worst so-called 1000 Island/NYC Russian dressing I've ever tasted--and I'm still tasting it 7 hours later. Brutal!
CRZ: I can reopen it if you really want to post there. (People may need to know this!)
The rest of the burger is the normally high quality Wendy's fare, but this "special sauce" is utterly stomach curdling.

My daughter tried one of these a couple days ago and said the sauce was disgusting. All four of the rest of us tried it (mom, dad and her two brothers). It was unanimous. It was very sweet tasting. Not good at all. Nope. Not gonna do it.

This thread goaded me into trying one for lunch today. Different, for sure. I didn't get the too sweet vibe, but I do have concerns about the long-term effects it's going to give me -- there does seem to be an after taste.
