Wendy’s Project Gold Hamburger, the highly anticipated Dave’s Hot n’ Juicy 1/2 lb. Double Cheeseburger, was finally  unveiled Monday after two and a half years, countless taste tests, expert chemists and cooks. After 42 years of the same burger, this burger has extra cheese, a thicker tomato and crinkled pickles — and weighs in at 810 calories fully loaded. Many of the  locations had to replace toasters and grills to make sure the burgers are extra special. Does Umami, Counter Burger or In n’ Out need to watch out? If you taste the burger, please weigh in.
