I tried every item on Wendy's new breakfast menu that is rolling out nationwide, and it blew me away

Business Insider Logo By Irene Jiang of Business Insider | Slide 1 of 45: 
  On Monday, 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 it
  revised its profit expectations because of 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.

  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's testing the breakfast menu.

  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?)

  I taste-tasted the signature breakfast sandwiches from 6 major
  fast-food chains, and the winner was clear
  

  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.
