FAST FOOD NEWS: Carl’s Jr. The Really Big Carl

News Carl s Jr The Really Big Carl

Carl’s Jr.’s new Really Big Carl is really just a regular two-patty Big Carl with an extra charbroiled beef patty and slice of American cheese to go along with the chain’s classic sauce, lettuce, and sesame seed bun.

It’s almost as if the head honchos at Carl’s Jr. looked at Jack in the Box’s Really Big Chicken Sandwich and said, “We can do that too!”

Carl’s Jr.’s website doesn’t show the nutrition facts for the Really Big Carl, but
I did modify the nutrition information for the regular one by customizing it with an extra patty. For some reason, the website would let me add an extra slice of cheese.

So a Big Carl with an extra beef patty has 1120 calories, 73 grams of fat, 30 grams of saturated fat, 2.5 grams of trans fat, 190 milligrams of cholesterol, 1430 milligrams of sodium, 56 grams of carbohydrates, 3 grams of fiber, 12 grams of sugar, and 64 grams of protein.

If you’ve tried it, let us know what you think of it in the comments.

REVIEW: Limited Edition Sprite Winter Spiced Cranberry

Limited Edition Sprite Winter Spiced Cranberry

What is Limited Edition Sprite Winter Spiced Cranberry?

Joy to the world! It’s officially cranberry soda season, with Sprite taking the lead with its unique Winter Spiced Cranberry, a mixture of the classic lemon-lime taste of Sprite with a twist of cranberry and spiced with other “natural flavors.” What those spices are, however, I’m not sure.

How is it?

The thing about the holidays I like the most are all the surprises soda companies have in store for us. Like a carbonated Santa, the Limited Edition Sprite Winter Spiced Cranberry is definitely one of them.

I’m sure by the soda’s subtitle you have a basic idea about what you’re getting, but hold it, feel it, shake it — maybe don’t shake it — and when you finally open this bottle of Sprite, the cranberry flavoring is ever so slight, with the heavily spiced (of what, I may continue to ask?) quotient truly making this a drink for the season.

Limited Edition Sprite Winter Spiced Cranberry 2

With a taste that’s reminiscent of ginger ale and crushed ornaments, it’s a cool sparkling beverage that feels more like an extra-sweetened holiday La Croix than anything Sprite has ever produced before. That being said, it ain’t all that bad, especially if you need a gentle stomach-setter after eating eight or nine of Tia Lupita’s deviled ham tamales. Yum!

Is there anything else you need to know?

One 20-ounce bottle contains 109% of your daily recommended allowance of sugars. That some sugar for today, and some for tomorrow also. Space out your sips!

Conclusion:

Sadly, there’s no Sprite Zero companion liquid to this, but, still, if you need one holiday soda (that’s not cinnamon flavored, natch) to get you through the 12 days of whatever holiday you may choose or not choose, I suppose you should probably make it this one.

Rating: 7 out of 10
Nutrition Facts: (1 Bottle) 200 calories, 0 grams of fat, 110 milligrams of sodium, 54 grams of carbohydrates, 54 grams of sugar, and 0 grams of protein.
