I was totally disgusted that Carl's Jr. would even consider adding such an item to their menu. The company says it hopes it will appeal to Americans' patriotic spirit, along with their appetites, and is aimed at its core customers: "young, hungry guys."
Hasn't Carl's Jr. heard that obesity is currently a national disaster? Obesity leads to diabetes, and we all pay in the end for the increased health care.
Just as more fast-food chains are adding healthy items to their menu, what would Carl's Jr.'s motive be other than to take advantage of the young? How sad to think the company doesn't care for its customers' good health.
Never miss a local story.
CUTLINE: This undated product image provided by CKE Restaurants shows Carl's Jr. and Hardee's "Most American Thickburger." A beef patty topped with a split hot dog sits atop a layer of Lay's potato chips between hamburger buns, with ketchup, mustard, tomato, red onion, pickles and American cheese.
