Reality Check: New Jim Beam Bourbon Thickburger from Hardee's and Carl's Jr.

If you forget what this commercial is promoting, you're probably not paying any attention. More

Of course, fast food chains aren't always trying to make something delicious. Rather, they're just trying to tempt us to come in again when they offer up things like Carl's Jr.'s most recent experiment: the Philly Cheese Steak Burger. I took the bait and stopped by to see how this new burger compares to its beauty shots. More
