This is the oddest story I have read in a while. MSNBC reports Wendy’s banishes ‘Biggie’ size. However, when you read the article, you find that Wendy’s isn’t really getting rid of the size, they are just going to rename “Biggie” to “Medium.” “Great Biggie” will become “Large” and the size formerly known as “Medium” will become “Small.” On the Wendy’s web site, I can see that there is also a size known as “Value,” which has fewer calories than “Small.”
I remember when Wendy’s introduced the “Biggie;” it was a nice way of saying extra-large. Basically, in less than 15 years, extra-large has become “Medium.” This doesn’t seem like a good trend.
