Burger King and Wendy’s Unveil $5 Deals

Both fast-food chains have just released $5 value meals, likely in the hopes of winning over each other's customers. Although the two releases are incredibly similar in their offering,

 there are a few small differences that may spell out whose meal deal is the better bargain.Burger King responded to the return of Wendy's popular $5 Biggie Bag by releasing an almost identical

$5 Your Way Value Meal around the same time.However,if you want to know who did it first, it was Wendy's,debuting its $5 deal in 2019. Burger King didn't launch its own version until December of 2021

Burger King's $5 Your Way Value Meal features a Double Whopper Jr., 4-piece nuggets ($1.59), small fries ($2.49), and a small drink ($2.29). While the Double Whopper Jr. isn't sold separately

at most locations, a Whopper Jr. runs about $2.69. In total, with a Whopper Jr. price, this would come to about $9.06 plus the cost of the extra patty.On the other hand, Wendy's $5 Biggie Bag allows

customers to now choose between three different sandwich options: the Jr. Bacon Cheeseburger, Double Stack, or classic Crispy Chicken BLT. If you were to buy a Double Stack ($3.09),

4-piece chicken nuggets ($2.19), small fry ($2.19), and small drink ($2.19) separately, the meal would cost $9.66 before tax. The price would be slightly less for the

Jr. Bacon Cheeseburger or Crispy Chicken BLT.Wendy's $5 Biggie Bag also includes several different burger options, which, when paired with a slightly better discount with the inclusion

of the rewards program, makes Wendy's the winner of this neck-to-neck battle. Since Burger King was dethroned by Wendy's as the bigger fast-food chain,it seems competition to reclaim the title

has not been lost on BK.
