When I first heard about it, I REALLY wanted to try the new Hardeeâ€™s Monster Thickburger, but there were two reasons why I didnâ€™t:
1. There isnâ€™t a Hardeeâ€™s anywhere here in the middle of the Pacific Ocean.
2. I donâ€™t think I have the balls to consume it. (Come on. 1,420 calories, 107 grams of fat, 229 milligrams of cholesterol, and 2,651 milligrams of sodium would scare many people and make vegans faint.)
Addicted Impulsive Buy reader Aymie asked if I was going to review it, however I told her the previously mentioned reasons why I couldnâ€™t.
A few weeks later, another addicted Impulsive Buy reader, Aymieâ€™s Mom (Who REALLY is Aymieâ€™s mom) told me about her husbandâ€™s review of the Monster Thickburger.
I was instantly jealous of him.
Sure the best way I could try to outdo him was to combine two McDonaldâ€™s Big Macs, but if I did that I would still be short 200 calories, 40 grams of fat, 70 milligrams of cholesterol, and 600 milligrams of sodium.
Youâ€™ve won this battle TheShu, but if McDonaldâ€™s ever creates the Quadruple Big Mac, the war will be mine. Muahaha. Muahaha.
Well to help me overcome the sadness of not eating a Hardeeâ€™s Monster Thickburger, I decided to try the new Jack in the Box Chicken Cordon Blue Sandwich, with its chicken breast, Swiss cheese, and two slices of ham, in between toasted sourdough bread. (Sacre blu! I know, you French-heads. It should be cordon blu. Donâ€™t yell at me, yell at Jack.)
Despite the plastic looking Swiss cheese (check out the picture), it was pretty good. Sure itâ€™s ONLY got 555 calories, a paltry 28 grams of fat, a tiny 100 milligrams of cholesterol, and a modest 1335 milligrams of sodium, but I think itâ€™s one of the tastier fast food chicken sandwiches Iâ€™ve had. Itâ€™s sure better than this one.
I wonder if Hardeeâ€™s will come out with a Monster Chicken Thickburger.
