Two Mushroom Melts will be available, only for a limited time. 

Lately, fast food chain Burger King has been stealing the show in Japan with tantalising monstrosities like the chip-filled Fake Burger and the bunless Extreme Burger, but now it looks like Wendy’s is set to steal the limelight, with the announcement that they’ll be releasing a new Bacon Mushroom Melt.

Produced as part of the “World Wendy’s” series bringing popular overseas burgers to Japan, the Bacon Mushroom Melt is based on the one enjoyed by Wendy’s customers in Canada, which made its triumphant return to menus there for a limited time last month.

Oozing with a warm and melty cheese sauce, fifty percent of which is filled with sliced mushrooms, the new burger also contains a 100-percent beef patty, crispy bacon smoked with applewood, and a slice of cheddar cheese, to ensure every bite contains the perfect mix of meat, sauce, and cheese.

While this is the first time for Japanese customers to get a taste of the Bacon Mushroom Melt Burger, there has been a similar offering on the menus during winter here — the Mushroom Melt Burger. This year, the Mushroom Melt will be returning for a limited time this winter, with a renewed sauce that contains 1.5 times more mushrooms than usual, in order to match the specifications of the mushroom melt sauce used in Canada.

▼ The Mushroom Melt Burger looks better than ever this year.

The Bacon Mushroom Melt Burger will be on the menu at Wendy’s locations nationwide from 10 December, priced at 690 yen (US$6.63). The Mushroom Melt Burger will also be available from 10 December, priced at 540 yen.

We’re definitely keen to give them both a try to see if they really are the warming winter burgers they promise to be. Now if only they would offer some sort of all-you-can-eat challenge like the folks over at Burger King did earlier this year. That would make our resident burger muncher a very happy customer!
