The Best Chili Cheese Fries are Gone, But Not Forgotten
With all of these political issues plaguing the nation today, as Americans, we tend to forget the larger problems at hand. Problems such as the fact Carl’s Jr. quietly discontinued their Chili Cheese Fries several years ago and no one seems to care.
Well, I care and I know I’m not alone. A select few of us haven’t stopped complaining since, and now I’m on a mission to get Carl’s Jr’s attention in order to persuade them to dominate the chili cheese fries market once again.
Why Chili Cheese Fries Need to Return
First off, Carl’s Jr. Chili Cheese Fries were second to none. Hard stop. They were one of the only food chains to offer chili cheese products WITHOUT using gross nacho cheese. They were the baddest bitch in the game.
Carl’s Jr. used actual shredded cheddar cheese sprinkled on top of their delicious chili. It was more authentic and less messy than competitors’ products. Cheese sauce leads to the fries becoming soggy and gross.
Let’s be honest — They weren’t the greatest looking dish on Carl’s Jr’s menu. At first glance they look like a slop of gruel on top of fries, but they performed where it counted — taste.
It was like lightning struck twice inside of Carl’s Jr. kitchens. Their fries are bigger and more natural-tasting than the competitor’s soggy, skinny potatoes. Don’t get me wrong- I love Wienerschnitzel as much as the next guy, but their fries are too skinny and small. At Carl’s Jr. you could order chili cheese fries by themselves along with an ice cold Dr. Pepper and that would be a full meal.
Why Not Just Go Somewhere Else?
I know what you’re thinking — “Why not just go to another fast food joint that has chili cheese fries?”
It’s just not that simple. When a food chain does decide to come out with a limited time version of chili cheese fries (and it’s always for a limited time), they do so by adding bacon, onions, ranch and whatever random topping they can think of. (I’m looking at you, Jack-in-the-Box.) We want the real thing and we will accept no less!
The point I’m trying to make is Carl’s Jr. did the nation a huge disservice with discontinuing their chili cheese fries. After doing some research I learned they have a cult following who are also very upset. What’s worse is Carls keeps a constant rotating menu with beer-battered everything. Just stick with something tried and true.
Since their chili cheese fries were discontinued, I no longer visit the restaurant as much as before and I’m sure the same could be said for plenty of other fans. Some may say it may be better for my health but I beg to differ. I was happy, whole and even glowing.
These days, every time I drive by my local Carl’s, it’s like watching my ex continuing on with their life when you know they are making the wrong decisions for themselves.
So please …
Please bring back your Chili Cheese Fries. The nation is going through enough as it is. You will make what I predict to be hundreds of millions of customers happy. Wars will end and global warming will slow down. Our friends will stop talking about politics on Facebook. We will be one step closer to a utopia.
It’s not fair that Burger King can quietly release products like burgers with black buns that turn your poop green, or deep fried Cheetos filled with Mac n Cheese. The terrorists are winning. It’s like you’re sitting on a cure for coronavirus and doing nothing about it. Please. Do the right thing.
Let’s Make Some Noise!
Look, we need to speak up on issues that affect us. We the people have the power to persuade Carl’s Jr. to bring back their Chili Cheese Fries if we get them to notice us — the new silent majority. If Netflix can revive shows that are cancelled by networks … who can we turn to? No one.
If you agree, share this article and tag Carl’s Jr. on social media so that they can see there are actually people who cherished this discontinued menu item. There’s now even an online petition to bring them back!
I know we can make a difference. For now, enjoy this video of someone eating them … and note that somewhere out there, some form of them still exist.
