“America” means many things to many people, but what could it mean to be “the most American?” There are probably as many different answers to that question, but it’s hard for me to think of a better one than Carl’s Jr.’s latest affront to the human body, The Most American Thickburger.
Let’s run down the ingredients here. You’ve got the usual beef patty, American cheese, lettuce, tomato, mustard, ketchup, etc. American, sure, but the most American? That doesn’t become apparent until you see what else this burger is packing under its buns: Potato chips, and a damn hot dog.
Whether or not a sliced up hot dog makes an appealing flavor combination with a cheeseburger probably didn’t even cross the mind of whoever developed The Most American Thickburger for Carl’s Jr. But you can find out for yourself starting on May 20th, when the burger is set to be available at all participating Carl Jr.’s locations.
