FAST FOOD NEWS: Carl’s Jr. Rocky Mountain High: CheeseBurger Delight (CBD)

Carl s Jr Rocky Mountain High

Carl’s Jr.’s newest test item, the Rocky Mountain High: CheeseBurger Delight (CBD), celebrates 4/20, features CBD oil, and is extremely elusive. The $4.20 cheeseburger is only available for one day (4/20) in one state (Colorado, where recreational marijuana use is legal) at one location (4050 Colorado Blvd. in Denver, which I assume got chosen because it has a 4 and 0 in its address).

The burger features two 100% charbroiled beef patties, pickled jalapeños, pepper jack cheese, Crisscut fries, and Carl’s Jr.’s signature Santa Fe Sauce infused with CBD oil all between a premium bun.

CBD oil is made from the flowers and buds of marijuana or hemp plants. It does not cause people to get high, but it is used to help with pain, anxiety, and insomnia. Carl’s Jr. is getting hemp-derived CBD oil from Bluebird Botanicals, a Colorado company.

The burger will be available while supplies last on 4/20. Although, if Carl’s Jr. is trying to lure the cannabis crowd, I imagine their collective munchies might make the supply dwindle quickly.

If you’re lucky enough to try it, let us know what you think of it in the comments.

FAST FOOD NEWS: Krispy Kreme Fruit-Inspired Collection

Krispy Kreme Fruit Inspired Collection

Krispy Kreme has introduced its Fruit-Inspired Collection, which will be available on Monday, May 6. There will be three fruit-flavored varieties:

Pineapple Doughnut: This is stuffed with pineapple-flavored filling and decorated with icing to make it look like the tropical fruit. While new to the U.S., the doughnut was available in Australia a few years ago.

Key Lime Doughnut: This doughnut features a Key Lime Kreme filling and should not be confused with Krispy Kreme’s previous Key Lime Pie Doughnut, which had graham cracker crumbles on it.

Strawberry Doughnut: This is packed with strawberry filling and decorated to resemble the fruit. But let’s be honest and point out that this is just Krispy Kreme’s heart-shaped donut in strawberry clothing.

Krispy Kreme’s Fruit-Inspired Collection will be available through Sunday, June 16 at participating shops across the U.S.

Prior to the release of those doughnuts, Krispy Kreme will be bringing back its Lemon Glazed Doughnut for one week only, from April 22 through April 28, at participating shops in the U.S. We reviewed it a year ago. Click here to read it. To find locations that will offer the doughnut, visit www.krispykreme.com/promos/lemon-glaze.

If you try any of the new summer doughnuts, let us know what you think of them in the comments.

FAST FOOD NEWS: Burger King Honey Hot Chicken Sandwiches and Mozzarella Sticks

Burger King Honey Hot Chicken Sandwiches

Burger King is testing a new chicken sandwich variation – Honey Hot Chicken – that I can’t help but think might be inspired by recent KFC creations. Impulsive Buy reader @buco81 sent in the photo above for the test item that was taken at a Burger King location in Boardman, Ohio.

It appears the sandwich comes topped with bacon, pickles, onions, and a sweet and spicy sauce. It’s available with either a crispy chicken filet, spicy crispy chicken filet, or grilled chicken.

Burger King Mozzarella Sticks

At the same location, there are also Mozzarella Sticks on the menu, available in 4-, 8-, and 20-piece orders with a side of marinara sauce for dipping. A quick Google search shows that BK has offered fried breaded sticks of mozzarella cheese in the past.

If you’ve seen either at a BK location near you or tried it, let us know in the comments.

FAST FOOD NEWS: Burger King Stacker King

Burger King Stacker King

Burger King’s delicious monstrosity of meat and cheese known as the Stacker is back, but now it goes by the Stacker King. The burger features 1/4 lb. flame-grilled beef patties, smoky bacon, American Cheese, and BK’s tasty Stacker sauce all on a toasted sesame seed bun.

Like the original Stacker, it’s available with multiple beef patties, hence its name. It’s available as a single (with 1/4 lb. of beef), double (with 1/2 lb. of beef), and a triple (with 3/4 lb. of beef).

If you’re wondering about the nutrition facts for a Triple Stacker King, it has 1370 calories, 93 grams of fat, 40 grams of saturated fat, 5 gram of trans fat, 340 milligrams of cholesterol, 2300 milligrams of sodium, 51 grams of carbohydrates, 1 grams of fiber, 11 grams of sugar, and 85 grams of protein.
