While Chick-fil-A and Starbucks seem to be piling products onto grocery store shelves lately, Wendy’s is a little slower to enter the field. Back in 2020 the fast food chain did dip their toes in the grocery category with limited-edition Baconator and Spicy Chicken Pringles. A year later the limited-edition Wendy’s Frosty Cereal entered the grocery store chat. But in 2023 they are expanding their product line with canned Wendy’s Chili, set to arrive in grocery stores this summer.
We’ll let you know how you can grab your can soon and what you can expect to pay for the can versus at restaurants.

Wendy’s Chili with Beans has a suggested retail price of $4.99 at grocery stores.
Canned Wendy’s Chili will cost you $4.99 at grocery stores. Each 15 oz can will contain approximately 29 grams of protein and consist of the same ingredients as the chili in the restaurant (beans, beef, tomato).
While Wendy’s hasn’t released a full list of the grocery stores selling the new product, you can expect them to be at most of the major grocery players.
NOTE: Product prices depend on the store you visit, so make sure to check before you head out.
