Final Note

Just in time for bathing suit season, Hardee’s and Carl’s Jr. have announced a new sandwich, the Most American Thickburger.”

If you are curious as to what constitutes the most American version of a hamburger, it’s a huge patty topped with a hot dog and potato chips, all glued together with American cheese. It comes in at a whopping 1,030 calories.

My favorite part of this story is not the culinary peak or valley the sandwich represents, but the fact that, reportedly, it’s an idea that Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s have had for a long time.

I wonder what was it about now that made them decide to go for it. What happened in that board room that finally made them say yes?
