July 21, 2016, 3:44 PM EDT Bacon, bacon, and more bacon.
Good news, bacon lovers: On Wednesday, Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s announced the release of its new 3-Way Thickburger, a 1/3-lb patty topped with three different types of bacon.
Served on a brioche-style bun, the burger is topped with with lettuce, tomato, American cheese and three types of bacon, atop a 1/3-lb Angus-beef patty, of course. But in addition to featuring two of its traditional bacon ingredients (thick-cut, Applewood-smoked bacon strips and crumbled bacon) the Bacon 3-Way Burger will introduce “bacon jam,” a fast-food first.
The jam combines bacon pieces, balsamic vinegar, caramelized onions and molasses, and according to Brad Haley, the chief marketing officer for Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s, the bacon jam is the true winner of the new burger.
