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 that 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 CCF market once again.
Why Chili Cheese Fries Need to Return
First and foremost, 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. The baddest bitch in the game.
Carl’s Jr. used actual shredded cheddar cheese sprinkled on top of delicious chili. This is more authentic and less messy because it doesn’t lead to the fries becoming soggy while being drowned in cheese sauce. They weren’t the prettiest looking dish on Carl’s Jr’s menu, but they performed where it counted — taste. And don’t get me started on their french fries!
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 just chili cheese fries with an ice cold Dr. Pepper and that would be a meal all by itself. You don’t have to order an entire meal to feel satisfied like with Wienerschnitzel.
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 God-Knows-What on top. (I’m looking at you, Jack.) We want the real thing and we will accept no less!
The point I’m trying to make is that Carl’s Jr. did the nation a huge disservice with letting go their cult classic chili cheese fries and replacing it with beer-battered-whatever.
Since chili cheese fries were discontinued, I no longer frequent the restaurant as much as I used to and I’m sure the same could be said for plenty of other fans. Some may say that’s a good thing but I beg to differ. I was happy. I was whole. I was glowing. Every time I drive by my local Carl’s, it’s like watching your ex continuing on with their life when you know they are making the wrong decisions for themselves.
This is my plea:
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. War will end. The fires? Over. 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. Dare I say, this is the equivalent of having the cure for cancer and doing nothing about it. Please. Do the right thing.
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.
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. I know we can make a difference.
