Monster Burger Update
Carl’s Jr. Unveils Massive Foot-Long Burger Popular Fidelity Images: "It’s as American as all-get-out. Carl’s Jr. (AKA Hardee’s here in the South) has long been one of America’s best-known burger chains, and while they do have a 1400-calorie monster burger, they’ve been relegated to an also-ran lately thanks to weird new food items like the Friendly’s grilled-cheese burger melt, the KFC double-down, and even the Burger King pizza burger. Not anymore. Determined to regain a slice of America’s attention, Carl’s Jr. is unveiling an 850-calorie, foot-long cheeseburger sandwich at 50 restaurants in California. If it goes well there, it’ll make tables nationwide."
