sobolwolf (1084585) writes "The people who brought you the Monster Thickburger and the 1,100-calorie salad are at it again — this time for breakfast.
"We don't try to hide what these are," a Hardee's spokesman said of the 920-calorie breakfast burrito.
Hardee's on Monday rolled out its new Country Breakfast Burrito ("country breakfast bomb") — two egg omelets filled with bacon, sausage, diced ham, cheddar cheese, hash browns and sausage gravy, all wrapped inside a flour tortilla. The burrito contains 920 calories and 60 grams of fat.
In 2003 the chain introduced a line of big sandwiches, including the Monster Thickburger. The 1,420-calorie sandwich is made up of two 1/3-pound slabs of beef, four strips of bacon, three slices of cheese and mayonnaise on a buttered bun.
The Center for Science in the Public Interest, a Washington-based advocate for nutrition and health, has called the Hardee's line of Thickburgers "food porn.""
