    Default Wendy's Chili

    I went back to a meeting yesterday to learn about the new Points Plus Program. It'll take a while to get used to. I'm a Lifer and up 7 pounds so it's perfect timing to go back. Wendy's Chili used to be 4 points but now I'm totally confused. Does anyone know the point value now? Next week I'll pick up the Fast Food Companion. Calculators are still on order but our leader gave us the site of the Points Plus calculator.

    From the Complete Food Companion:

    Chili, 1 small serving 4
    Chili, 1 large serving 7

    You can also use the ni on the Wendy's website and the free online calculator to figure the points.

    Why use dwlz, which was often wrong with the old program, when Wendy's provides the ni themselves? The restaurant site will always be the most up to date and accurate. I've seen cases with dwlz where her information was nowhere close to what was on the restaurant site. It's probably okay right now, if she just updated, but it doesn't always stay updated.

    Actually, I have already found several problems with the new DWLZ values. For starters, she is using half points which do not exist on Points Plus. That alone makes me question the validity of any of her information. DWLZ was a wonderful site when restaraunt nutritional information was much harder to obtain, but now it is so widely available that I simply avoid chain restaurants that don't provide it.

    This does not answer the original poster's question at all, but when I was a teenager, my friend worked at Wendy's and he told me that the meat in the chili was scrapings from the grill. Little bits of hamburger meat that falls off while grilling gets dropped into the chili pot. I love Wendy's chili, and I have no problem with hamburger bits being thrown into the pot. But I just thought I'd share that little factoid with you all. Lol

    Interesting!
