Grilled Cheese + Bacon + Cheese Burger
This is the newest creation from Carl’s Jr. At first I suspected this was going to be similar to the Jack in the Box sourdough cheeseburger. It’s not. In fact, it is nothing like it. If you have followed my reviews then you know I am not a fan of goopy foods, I am however a fan of Carl’s Jr burgers and look forward to trying their new ideas in burgers. This one is based on the idea of comfort food, specifically, the grilled cheese sandwich. Start with Sour Dough and grilled cheese, throw in a burger and bacon and you have the new Grilled Cheese Bacon Cheeseburger.
I have to say they really did get the grilled cheese down, there is a lot of cheese on this thing. It is very rich and heavy. I guess that is what makes it a comfort food. It tasted great but was a little much for me. The bread was delicious, super fluffy, lots of flavor. The cheese and mayo were trying to pop through the bread and eventually did. The bacon was good, typical, but not at all bad.
The Amazing Spider Man opening July 3rd, 2012
Carl’s Jr is working real hard to help promote The Amazing Spider Man opening July 3rd, 2012. The first commercial they showed for this burger featured a Hollywood blvd. street Spider Man impersonator with a comical web shooter. Classic stuff in it’s own sense, but the commercial left me a little under whelmed, and perhaps I was turned off by the impersonator. Luckily Carl’s Jr is not one to rest on its laurels and has come out with a few more and their newest is the best. It features a variety of people dressed as Spider Man jumping in slow motion with Habanera playing in the back ground. Very Classy
Back to the burger, it was great, a little heavy but definitely very good, if you love Grilled Cheese Sandwiches and you love bacon burgers, then you are absolutely going to love this, and don’t forget to check out their new video.
