New 1,080-Calorie Burger Comes Topped With Hot Dogs, Chips

Carl’s Jr. began selling a 1,080-calorie burger Wednesday that it hopes appeals to Americans’ patriotic spirit, along with their appetites.

The Most American Thickburger features a beef patty topped with hot dogs and a layer of potato chips, combining three Fourth of July barbecue staples in a creation aimed squarely at the fast-food chain’s core customers: “young, hungry guys.”

“People love these big, juicy, indulgent burgers,” said Andy Puzder, the chief executive officer of closely held CKE Restaurants, the parent company of Carl’s Jr. and its companion chain Hardee’s. “We know who we are and we know how to appeal to our customers.”

The idea for the burger has been percolating inside the Carpinteria, California-based company for almost five years, Puzder said. The chain toyed with including french fries on the burger, but found they wouldn’t hold up against the moisture inside the sandwich. They got too soggy. The same was true of regular potato chips, so Carl’s Jr. settled on kettle-cooked chips that are a bit hardier.

The fast-food chain, which is controlled by the private-equity firm Roark Capital, has about 3,500 restaurants worldwide, including approximately 2,900 in the U.S.

What's your point?

He's trying to exclude Muslims. Duh! That is until one orders it without the hotdog. Gasp!

Then it would not be an American Thickburger.

Or how about a veggie hot dog? Or a beef one? Or is this something you want to make sure we're excluded from?
