Game Changer? Carl's Jr. Sells a Burger Made of Ice Cream!
Not every burger needs to be made of beef. We definitely have a handle on the cow-less options for burger enjoyment, but what if that burger was made of...ice cream? Now fast food chain Carl's Jr. is in the testing phase for just that kind of item: An Ice Cream Brrrger.
Foodbeast was tipped off to the item, and explains: "the sandwich is priced at $1.99 and features chocolate ice cream at the core, a drizzle of multi-colored icing and is flanked by cookies."
The HuffPo dug a little deeper, and dug up this early bit of consumer feedback:
Haha Ice Cream BRRRger at Carls Jr :) kinda gross though. The sugar cookies made it too sweet! pic.twitter.com/yqMdHWDS— Cole Bartiromo the Dollar Scholar (@ColeBartiromo) May 17, 2012
Imagine that? Sugar cookies filled with ice cream and squirted with icing is too sweet?!
If you are willing to throw caution (and sugar-sensitive tastebuds) to the wind, you'll have to head into the OC to find the Brrrger:
Carl's Jr. has confirmed that the chain is testing the ice cream brrrger in a handful of Carl's Jr. units in Orange County. They will not comment on test items other than to confirm them. Once a test wraps up and the sales data and guest feedback is analyzed, it will decide whether to roll out the item systemwide.
