Compared with the Grilled Chicken Caesar Salad on Panera’s menu, the Spicy Chicken Caesar on Wendy’s has 5.5 times the fat and nearly a third less protein. And thanks in large part to the massive chunks of Asiago cheese, Wendy’s doles out more than 75 percent of your day’s saturated fat with every Caesar sold. Not even the Baconator is that dangerous.
