Fruit Fat By The Foot: Carl's Jr. (Hardees) Experiments With Footlong Cheeseburger
A footlong cheeseburger for $4. You can't beat that with a
stick hardened artery! I mean you could, but that would be f***ing disgusting and you better believe I'd scream like a little girl if I saw you do it.
Carl's Jr. simply couldn't sit still too long while KFC hopped into the sandwich game with their Double Down from days ago. It looks like they're trying to make some waves with this new "Footlong Cheeseburger" they're testing out at one of my local Santa Ana, CA, locations. The sandwich comes along with some chuckles, to say the least. It sells for $4 (the plain cheeseburger), and the deluxe is set at $4.50 (comes with all the fixings, lettuce, tomatoes, onions). The combo meals are set at $6.50 for the cheeseburger version and $7.00 for the deluxe footlong.
The 12-inch burger is wrapped like a sandwich, and sticks out of most of the to-go bags offered up at the location, so it was definitely an interesting sight. I'm not sure how well the burger will fair, it's basically just a few patties and ingredients mimicking a sub sandwich, which may end up not helping its overall appeal.
So it's basically three cheeseburgers laid end to end on a sub bun. I'm not even gonna lie, that sounds fattening. And delicious. Where were you on this, Subway? Eat fresh my ass -- you eatin' rotten!
Hit the jump for a couple recon shots of the actual burger.
