Wendy’s® Apologizes to Canadians for Potential Local Mushroom Shortage

TORONTOOct. 15, 2018 /CNW/ – Canadians could find themselves experiencing a potential local mushroom shortage, and it’s for the best reason ever. Wendy’s® is bringing back its in-demand, fan-favourite Bacon Portabella Mushroom Melt for a limited time only.

With rich portabellas and a melty cheese sauce, the hamburger features Applewood smoked bacon and fresh, never frozen Canadian beef. The limited-edition sandwich has remained in high demand over the years with fans counting down its comeback, and it’s finally here.

So, mark your calendars, the Bacon Portabella Mushroom Melt is back in town – how long? Well that’s up to you. The more you tweet about getting your #MeltOn, the longer it could stick around. You want it to stick around, don’t you? This may result in a prolonged portabella mushroom drought, but you can still find them at all participating Wendy’s® locations for a limited time.

Tweet @WendysCanada using #MeltOn, and Wendy’s® will be listening.
