Carl's Jr., the popular burger chain, is daring young men to eat its latest creation. And when they eat it, Carl's Jr. should be able to sell the young men a LOT to drink. That's because according to FoodBeast, Carl's Jr.'s new invention can contain up to 2900 milligrams of sodium! Thirsty yet?
Carl Jr.'s new heavyweight entry into the never-ending burger battles is called the Texas BBQ Thickburger, a name it fully justifies. The 1/2 pound patty--you can get 1/4 or 1/3 but that's for wimps--is immersed in fried onions and jalapenos, spicy sauce, melted cheese and smoked beef brisket. The target is young men ages of 18-34, according to Fox News. (Fox is trying to attract the same demographic! And employing familiar hyperbole to get them: the Fox story says the Thickburger contains 2900 GRAMS of sodium.) And lucky for hungry guys with five bucks--and for future cardiologists' summer homes--if there's no Carl's Jr. nearby, Hardees--Carl's sister operation--will be offering the Memphis BBQ Thickburger. Same thing pretty much.
