Wendy’s Canada is bringing the Quebec classic dish to the country with the addition of poutine to its menu. They are also launching an online “Poutition” to make it Canada’s national dish as a media hook.
There’s no denying the savory taste of Wendy’s iconic fries, served hot and crispy with a sprinkle of sea salt, buried under a mountain of cheese curds and covered in rich poutine sauce (gravy).
Canadians can visit Poutition.ca or Wendy’s Canada Facebook page to virtually sign a petition to make it Canada’s national dish. Once 100,000 signatures are received, the “Poutition” will be submitted to Parliament for consideration just in time for Canada Day.
The mouth-watering new poutine is available now at Wendy’s locations across Canada for $3.99 and is also available for $2.20 as a side upgrade in a combo.
Sounds fun right? Tasty too – but beware the whopping 660 calories, 37.0 grams of fat and 1410 mg of sodium per serving!
