I want to try it.  The Hardee’s Prime Rib Thickburger, the latest in the line of Thickburgers.

The St. Louis-based fast-food chain’s latest menu addition, available as of Wednesday, is the Prime Rib Thickburger. The sandwich – 780 calories and 48 grams of fat – will have a suggested price of $4.49, or $6.49 with fries and a drink.

“We’ve never been ones to follow the fast-food herd mentality,” said Brad Haley, vice president of marketing for Hardee’s.

The Prime Rib Thickburger is almost health food compared to some Hardee’s offerings – the chain offers four sandwiches with more than 1,000 calories, most famously the Monster Thickburger with 1,420 calories and 108 grams of fat.

That’s right!  F the herd.  Even if the herd is going toward health.  Bring on the 2k calorie burger!

Something to say?
