It’s hard for me to have any interest over the recently released Moonlight Meal Deal from Wendy’s. The Moonlight Meal Deal is a $5 combo that consists of a Double Stack burger, Chili Cheese Fries and a large drink. I felt like breaking down the business move by Wendy’s and giving my personal take on it. Feel free to give us your opinion on the combo deal in the comments.My lack of interest comes from a few different angles. Let’s break down the major points:
#1: It’s only available after 10pm: Maybe I’m slightly outside of the target demo for the Moonlight Meal Deal, but come on Wendy’s… after 10pm only? I bet the dinner time crowds die down significantly after 8pm so why not stretch it out to after 8pm instead? Having “Happy Hour” prices is a new trend that has spilled over into the fast food world a little more these days and I think it’s a great business strategy. After 10pm only special pricing wouldn’t be so bad if there was actually more to it. … continue reading “Breaking Down the Moonlight Meal Deal at Wendy’s”

Usually, when you’re given house chips, it’s a good thing. It means you’re ahead of the game; you can’t lose. In my book, I usually see Arby’s as ahead of the game before I walk in the door based on my past experiences, mostly related to their roast beef. Another of my favorite Arby’s assets is their namesake sauce. So, when I heard they were going to make Arby’s Sauce flavored House Made Chips, I was eager to give them a try. After all, Arby’s does well with other fried potatoes which I often dip in Arby’s Sauce, so why not?As a day-job scientist-type, I thought it important to test the new chips against a control. Therefore, I decided to pair the chips with the most time-tested of Arby’s offerings; that being their regular roast beef sandwich, sans the lauded new bun and pickles. As per my normal routine, I picked up some Arby’s sauce to adorn my roast beef, but had to wonder whether I would need it given the promise of the Arby’s Sauce flavoring on the chips. I also wondered if I needed to order anything else to satisfy my American sized appetite. Would a simple sack of chips be enough to fill me up along with my regular sized roast beef? … continue reading “Review: House Made Chips from Arby’s”
