Of all the fast-food choices out there, Carl’s Jr. is one of my top choices if I want to grab something tasty to go.
But their new menu item had me excited and then disappointed all in one commercial.
I love grilled cheese sandwiches – they’re so tasty, buttery, and cheesy. Simple but they can hit the spot perfectly every time.
So when I saw the commercial about Carl’s new “grilled cheese,” I was ready to go out and try one until I realized their “grilled cheese” is just another big Carl cheese burger with bacon and extra cheese on sourdough bread.
Not to insult either fast-food chain restaurants but I would call it a Sourdough Jack with bacon and extra, extra cheese.
Saying they want to give their customers that comfort food they crave, the fast-food chain’s newest creation started out as a menu item for vegetarian customers but instead created Carl’s Jr. Grilled Cheese Bacon Burger – a charbroiled burger patty, bacon, four slices of melted American and Swiss cheeses in between grilled sourdough buns.
Though the vegetarian is also available, I wish they could have just given this new burger another name so as not to confuse (and excite) customers for no reason.
I have not tried the “grilled cheese” yet but not sure if I want to – I could just go order a grill cheese from my local Rick’s.
WHAT’S YOUR TAKE? REAL GRILLED CHEESE OR JUST ANOTHER CHEESY BURGER?
