  • On Tuesday, Wendy’s announced that it would be rolling out a breakfast menu nationwide in 2020.
  • The chain’s stock dropped by over 11% on Tuesday after the chain revised its profit due to the breakfast announcement.
  • I went to a Wendy’s location that was testing the breakfast menu and tried everything on it.
  • Investors should keep calm and carry on — the new menu has some real hard-hitters that are sure to please fans, like the Honey Butter Chicken Biscuit and the Breakfast Baconator.

Wendy’s is entering the breakfast arena again, the chain announced on Monday.

But not everyone’s as excited about the news. Investor trepidation — possibly due to Wendy’s many short-lived dalliances with breakfast over the years — caused the company’s stock to drop by over 11% after the announcement was made.

It just so happens that the Wendy’s closest to Business Insider’s New York office is one of the 300 locations around the nation that is testing out the breakfast menu ahead of time.

Naturally, I went to that Wendy’s and ordered everything on the breakfast menu (except for apple slices and the granola bar, because who goes to Wendy’s for apple slices or granola?)

The verdict? Some items were clear flops, but others were definitely a potent threat to the competition. Overall, I’d say that Wendy’s got it right this time.

Here’s how its breakfast menu stacks up.

The haul: nine sandwiches, a burrito, some fried potatoes, and two kinds of iced coffee.

BREAKFAST BACONATOR — First up, and already the most iconic of the lineup. The breakfast Baconator is essentially a breakfast version of Wendy’s iconic Baconator.

The Breakfast Baconator replaces the two beef patties in the classic Baconator with a square sausage patty and a round fried egg. True to its name, it also has a ton of bacon.
