This Monday, Hardee’s unveiled their 920-calorie burrito called the Country Breakfast Burrito. It consists of two egg omelets stuffed full of bacon, diced ham, sausage, cheddar cheese, hash browns and sausage gravy. This concoction is wrapped inside a flour tortilla. It has 920 calories and 60 grams of fat.
A Hardee’s spokesperson said, “We don’t try to hide what these are. When consumers go to other fast-food places they feel like they’ve got to buy two of their breakfast sandwiches or burritos to fill up. This is really designed to fill you up.”
I don’t know about you but I find it rather disgusting, at least all mixed together like that. With the sausage gravy in there you would be likely to be wearing it if you tried to eat it while driving. Yuck. I can’t see the cheese and eggs mixing well with the gravy either, double yuck. I know if I’m going to indulge in a cheap cholesterol fest I’m going to have a sit down meal at Waffle House or some other such place. I’m not going to try to eat it on the run.
The Center for Science in the Public Interest had to weigh in with a big negative on this food item with their veiled hints that such items should be banned ala the society depicted in the movie Demolition Man. I agree with what the Hardee’s guy said, if someone buys one they know what they’re getting into. And someone might just want to eat one just because they feel like it pal.
What do you think? Disgusting or tasty? Should it be banned or should people be allowed to gorge on one if they want? Let me know. Leave a comment.
