Wendy's was the first fast-food restaurant to offer and popularize spicy chicken sandwiches, but they were left out of the Spicy Chicken Sandwiches taste test for some reason. I like them but maybe they aren't considered good enough to make the cut.

That sisters video was super cute. I think it looks a little fake to us because they've got one eye on the tiktok camera, but I think that's just how kids are these days.
