Going turkey at Carl’s Jr.

I’ve professed my love for Carl’s Jr’s Guacamole Bacon Six Dollar burgers before – for a fast food burger, the patty is juicy, the guacamole tastes fresh complete with little chunks of tomato and cilantro, the chipotle spread instead of mayo and red onion, my favorite – it’s delicious!
As much as I love that burger, I admit it can be much. I either can’t finish the whole thing at once or can’t move after I’m done and that does not include fries and a drink.

So when I saw the chain’s new turkey burgers had a guacamole version, I gave in and needed to try it. I don’t believe I ever had a turkey burger before. Actually, having turkey any time other than Thanksgiving is pretty rare for me – I’m all about the pork and beef.
But I was drawn by the fact that Carl’s version is supposed to be under 500 calories and I can still enjoy the guacamole.

When I unwrapped my Turkey Guacamole burger ($3.99), it was already smaller than the six dollar burger. There was plenty of guacamole that for a second, I couldn’t see the turkey patty. With the first bite, I was impressed with the texture of the patty, it wasn’t too weird and it didn’t have a strong taste, letting the guacamole and chipotle spread take care of that part.

I finished the burger pretty quick, for me that is, and happily I was not in a food coma. It was satisfying and a feeling of food guilt didn’t follow.
I do have a few suggestions though for Carl’s Jr store #7393 in Covina – I’m all for not wasting produce, including lettuce, but I would like some green in my lettuce and please don’t be so stingy on the tomato or onion.

  1. This is getting a bit more sucbejtive, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of neighbors will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune Social is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.
