Carl’s Jr. Foot Long Burger

August 8, 2010

Can you believe it?? Carl’s Jr. Fast Food Hamburger Joint has a new burger coming your way soon. A FOOT LONG burger. FOR ONLY FOUR BUCKS!

They are trying to keep up with Subway’s foot long from what I am told. What happened to restaurants helping those who cannot and making their food healthier, not worse? Can you imagine the calories? One foot long, one jumbo fries and one jumbo drink.

Let us see, if you buy a Super star with cheese it is a whooping 920 calories and 58 grams of fat. Add french fries for 500 calories and 24 grams of fat. I was surprised there was no nutritional valve on their sodas so I got the numbers from McDonald’s. A 32 oz drink is a whopping 310 calories with 86 grams of sugar. This meal is a whopping grand total of 1730 calories and 82 grams of fat. What do you think the nutritional value will be of this foot long burger combo meal? It appears to be equivalent to three burgers… Let us guesstimate. 2760 calories? 72 grams of fat? Add the fries and drink… Ta DA… 3570 calories!!!! I cannot wait to see what the nutritional values are on this new item!

At least for those of use who have to go to a fast food restaurant they do have this…

Even this low carb version has 570 calories and 43 grams of fat.

The lesson to be learned…Nothing on a “Fast Food” restaurant’s menu is clean or worthy of eating. You can put together a great clean meal in less time than it takes to drive to a fast food place and buy their crap. I do not know many people who can ONLY but the low carb burger. Always, always some fries and a soda and/or shake will be ordered also.

Me, I just got home from the Framer’s market… Lettuce, celery, onions, okra, sweet potatoes, corn, strawberries and my downfall, sourdough bread.

I am going to try to see how many calories in my made at home turkey burger. Results coming soon.

I could not believe this. Fast food restaurants are supposed to start making their menus healthier for us.  This came in my email just now.  For a whopping $5.99 I can purchase the above AND without leaving the comfort of my home.

And people wonder why.  ADVERTISING… Enough said!
