Food News: A&W Chipotle Crunch Burger

Looks like the All-American root beer float and hamburger chain A&W is the latest to get in on the “Chipotle” craze, adding a sweet and smokey sauce to their new, reformatted burger lineup.  We recently gave you a review of the A&W Bacon Ranch Crunch, now comes the Chipotle Crunch:

Our New A&W Chipotle Crunch Burger has a kickin’ Chipotle sauce, pepperjack cheese and crunchy onions… all piled on top of a 100% US Beef Steak burger for a taste you’ll love. It’s a spice that’s just right!

In addition to the new burger, A&W has also rolled out a Peanut Butter Brownie Crunch Sundae to their menu lineup. You can get more information about both their items on their website.

    Hope this is decent, the Ranch burger made me gag when I had it in Minnesota. The Canadian A&W is MUCH better than it’s southern counterpart. Just saying..

      Jesse you are right, I have eaten at A&W in Quebec a good half dozen times and it is at a whole other level than the locations I have been to in the USA.

    Everyone is putting those crunchy onions on their burgers, looks like a food company came up with a version that is shelf stable and retains their crunch.

    Agree, so many places are putting onion rings and crunchy onions on top. For my money, I stick to raw red onion. Chipotle craze has come back…It was big two years ago…bleh…

    Many fast-food firms are offering “new” varieties of what are actually rehashed minor variations of the same basic offering.

    I believe it is due to the lackluster economy with fewer folks eating outside the home.

    Personally, I prefer the basic burger/cheeseburger with my preferred condiments; usually lettuce, onuon, at times tomato, pickles removed and, at times, whatever “secret sauce is used… often some variation of Thousand Island dressing but to reduce calorie content somewhat I often ask for that to not be used.

    Basic fare and i hope the meat used is lacking bone bits and is fresh and properly cooked; not rare and not over-cooked; a happy medium.

    Most fast-food joints can do that so often price is my guide.

    Since A&W is often more expensive than their competitors I tend to shun them unless their fare is on sale.

    Are you aware that A&W had and has an A&W Bear as a mascot?

    Some outlets have an A&W Bear costume to assist in advertising locally.

    Most folks have never seen the bear prancing around akin to an idiot but I have.

    For a picture and the sordid story if an Old Coot’s “career as an A&W bear you can read it here:
