Hardee's Unleashes 920-Calorie Burrito Bomb

Hardee’s new Country Breakfast Burrito contains two egg omelets packed with bacon, sausage, diced ham, cheddar cheese, hash browns and sausage gravy… and 920 calories. We’ve never eaten two omelets in one sitting, and hope to never have to.

“This is no ordinary breakfast burrito,” said Brad Haley, executive vice president of Marketing for Hardee’s restaurants. “It’s an entire country breakfast in the palm of your hand.”

Four years ago, Hardee’s introduced a 1,420 calorie Thickburger, and 1,100 calorie salad. The Center for Science in the Public Interest has called Thickburgers, “food porn.” They dubbed this latest creation, “another lousy invention by a fast-food company.”
