View Full Version : Hardee’s serves up 1,420-calorie burger

As many fast-food chains introduce healthier fare amid fears of being sued, Hardee’s is bucking the trend, serving up a megaburger with 1,420 calories and 107 grams of fat.

St. Louis-based Hardee’s Food Systems Inc. Monday rolled out its Monster Thickburger — two one-third-pound slabs of Angus beef, four strips of bacon, three slices of cheese and mayonnaise on a buttered sesame seed bun. The sandwich alone sells for $5.49 or $7.09 with a medium fries (520 calories) and soda (about 400 calories).

McDonald’s Corp., Wendy’s International Inc. and other fast-food giants have broadened their offerings of salad and other lower-calorie fare amid concerns the industry could be held legally liable for America’s obesity epidemic. Hardee's offers no such concessions, although the chain is not completely oblivious to dietary trends, offering at least three "low-carb" items including a low-carb Thickburger.

In an interview on CNBC, Hardee's chief executive Andrew Puzder was unapologetic, saying the company's latest sandwich is "not a burger for tree-huggers."

"This is a burger for young hungry guys who want a really big, delicious, juicy, decadent burger," he said. "I hope our competitors keep promoting those healthy products, and we will keep promoting our big, juicy delicious burgers."

Health-safety activist Michael Jacobson denounced the new Hardee's concoction.

"They would argue they are just giving people what they want. I would say this is beyond the pale," said Jacobson, executive director of the Center for Science in the Public Interest. "Probably no nutritionist ever imagined that a product like this would be marketed."

Jacobson pointed out that one Monster Thickburger contains twice the recommended daily allowance of saturated fat, and nearly a full day's worth of sodium. Even before the new Monster Thickburger, the chain offered five sandwiches with 1,000 calories or more, and eight overall that have more calories than what was once the big-burger standard — McDonald’s 600-calorie Big Mac.

"If Hardee's persists in marketing this junk, it should at least list calories right up on the menu board," Jacobson said.

While fast-food diets have been blamed for an epidemic of obesity and heart disease, last year a federal judge in New York dismissed two class-action suits blaming McDonald’s for making people fat.

“Maybe this is a smart strategy because there are still folks out there who care about the taste and size of their sandwich, and less about their weight,” said Jerry McVety, president of the restaurant consulting firm McVety & Associates in Farmington Hills, Mich.

Holy crap.

I was at a Hardees last summer at the lake, dying of hunger and got one of their chicken sandwiches. I couldn't figure out why it seemed to take forever to eat, and I was getting full with half of it still left. I thought to myself, "You're such a pussy. It's just a chicken sandwich. Eat the damn thing already."

I forced the damn thing down but didn't make it long after that. Ended up puking on the side of the road about a mile away. Just too much freaking food I guess.

You don't have Hardee's or Carl's Jr there? That's terrible.

I had a double six dollar burger on Monday. They don't have that listed on the nutrition guide on carls jr website, but the single is 956 calories. The double is two 1/2 pound patties.

When I was real young my dad would put ketchup on my scrambled eggs for me and I use to put it on my hot dogs (though I never got into Dad's habit of putting it on cottage cheese), but some where along the way I became very disgusted with ketchup and would only use it on a burger. I now I don't mind it so much and use it for my fries on a more regular basis.

But I refuse to desecrate my hotdogs with the stuff again.

The only problem with the Carl's Jr (and, I'm assuming Hardee's) Six Dollar Burger is the they cook the ever lovin' hell out of it.

It'd probably be awesome if it was just a little pink in the middle still. But, you'll never get that at a fast food joint.

From the description, it's less beef (two 1/3 pound patties instead of two 1/2 pound patties), tho it comes with bacon. I'm sure you could order the double six dollar w/ bacon if you really wanted it, tho.

I worked at McD's for four years back in the afore mentioned "can eat 100000000 calories a day" days... I'm a small guy, but man I can put down burgers. I have had a few really proud moments

conquering a sextouple (that's six) quarter pounder with cheese and bacon between each slice of meat +mayo, ketchup, onions, pickles, mustard... plus super fries and super drink... I don't know what the calories are there, but I think it could feed a small family for a week.

I've also conquered 4 (four) DOUBLE whoppers with four fries and one drink in 40 minutes.

large pizza's yada yada...

but the one that conquered me was if anyone has every been to Schlotzi's (it's a sub type sandwitch shop, but waaaay better) They serve a "Large Deluxe" that lists (going of memory here) as around 2300 calories, 190 grams of sat fat... and well I don't know but it's crazy... I've consumed 1.5 of those in less than an hour... and that second half taunts me to this day, I think I was just off my game though.

There's nothing inherently wrong with the pancakes other than their rather dubious choice in company. I've really got nothing at all to say about them. I like my paragraphs to at least look impressive on the skim-through, so I'd really hate to have to end this one so soon. My hope is that you're not really reading the article, moreover just scanning through while looking at the pictures and judging how good the article must be based on the general length of the paragraphs you skip. If that's the case, it affords me the chance to type totally off-topic, random words just for the sake of making this bitch seem lengthy.

The grease doesn't bother me as much as the shit they fry in it.

It doesn't help that they fry everything in the same grease. Even the fries taste like fish.

Perhaps, but I would get an "A+" for effort.

I'm at least curious as to what they taste like. Someone should post after they have tried it. The not for tree huggers part cracked me up. ENDO would make the perfect guinea pig for this one, that guy will put anything in his body. What do say ENDO?

Well, like I said earlier in the thread...

Out in these parts, we have Carl's Jr... they have a double Six Dollar Burger... which, while lacking the bacon of the burger in question here, has more meat (two 1/2 pound patties instead of two 1/3 pound patties). I've have a few double six dollar burgers. They're pretty tasty. Bout as good as you can get for a fast food burger. But, Carl's Jr cooks the hell out of it. You'd have to go to a real restaurant to get a burger that doesn't have that problem.

Go to the Chuckbox. Be sure and take a stick with you though, some people need to use the stick to put their intestines back up the arse.

In an interview on CNBC, Hardee's chief executive Andrew Puzder was unapologetic, saying the company's latest sandwich is "not a burger for tree-huggers."

:LOL: Excellent. :thumb:

....the recommended daily intake of cholesterol is 300 milligrams.

Is that even possible?

That guy screwed up. The single Six Dollar Burger is only 135mg. If we assume that the majority of the cholesterol is in the patty, then the 260 number would make sense... but, it would be mg, not grams.

Ok, it was mg and not g. That makes sense.

I've eaten there once. Seem to recall it was pretty tasty.

I got a chef's salad one day at the food court, thinking I was going to be healthy, and then I looked at the nutrition facts. Holy iceberg lettuce! The dressing alone had 700 calories in it. I figure that the whole salad was at least 1,500 calories, and probably more.

It was a pretty darn tasty salad, though.
I had a chef's salad for lunch.

My packet of dressing had 60 calories.

Didn't have any nutrition facts for the rest of the salad, tho.
