  1. Why do the Hardees and Carls Jr. versions have different nutritional info?

      1. I’ve played around with the nutrition calculator on each site and can’t get them to match up.

        Also, each site has a different picture for the hot dog.

        1. I read somewhere that the burgers used by Carl Jr. and Hardees are different. Something about where the meat comes from.

  2. How about a version with a pepperoni pizza, call it the Italian American. Or maybe stick a burrito and a patty between a couple of buns and call it the Mexican American. The disgusting permutations are endless.

  3. Ah, come on, Carl’s Jr, now you’re just trolling us!

    I’m not sure they haven’t been all along. I had the El Diablo Thickburger last night — too big for me to finish — and it was weirdly fascinating but ultimately not something I’d do more than once a year, and it’d probably help to have had a couple drinks first.

  4. I was actually able to get an early First-Look Review earlier this week before the National launch of the New Most American Thickburger on 5/20 and it’s up on my channel right now! Just search “peep this out” on YouTube to head on over and check it out up close! This is THE Burger of the Summer for 2015! I also reviewed the Limited Test Market-Only Flamin’ Hot Cheetos Thickburger too! I have to say, out of all the fast food chains, Carl’s Jr./Hardee’s is really pushing the envelope to stand out with some truly attention grabbing items!

  5. Hardee’s/Carl’s Jr, should just go ahead and make the Ultra Heart Attacker, so they can get this “super unhealthy burger” thing out of their system.

    The UHA Burger: three thick, fluffy buns so butter-infused that you’d have to fend off Paula Deen to eat ’em; a whole mess of crispy, delicious pork cracklins/chicharrones; ten criss-crossed strips of crispy bacon just to make -sure- there’s enough pork; two fried eggs; some lovely deep-fried hush puppies; a fistful of thick-cut French fries with chili; four ounces of extra-sharp Cheddar; and about a pound of 70/30 superfat beef for that lovely über-greasy feel. Also includes a generous slathering of real mayonnaise, just in case there wasn’t enough fat in there!
