Footlong Cheeseburger

by Jeremy on July 16, 2010 · 1 comment

I know that KFC got a lot of publicity for the Double Down — not the least of which was from EP — but it seems like there is a subtle, unspoken race to outdo the Colonel.  The Orange County Register, which I read religiously, has clued us in on a new contender.   Welcome the addition from Carl’s Jr.:  The Footlong Cheeseburger.

Carl's Jr. Footlong Cheeseburger

Where's the beef?

Call me crazy, but it sure just appears to be three patties (above picture is half of the footlong) poorly arranged on a sub bun.  Subway would catch hell for this lack of tessellation.  I’m sure Carl’s Sr. is rolling over in his grave, I mean it’s pretty much just an elongated triple cheeseburger.  I’m not impressed.

By the way, I’m still waiting for my lifetime supply of free Frosty’s, Wendy’s.  It’s an extremely generous offer to save your moribund eatery.  And it won’t last forever.

Yeah I’m not impressed either. A footlong cheeseburger isn’t really that wild if you think about all the sub/sandwich/pizza shops out there that have cheeseburger subs. I can throw a rock and hit 3 independent pizza joints in my town that have 14″ cheeseburger subs. I guess for a fast food chain this is new ground though. A lifetime supply of Frosty’s sounds like a good plan, where do I sign up!?
