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.
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.
