Once again, ladies and gentlemen, it’s Thickburger time. And this one is riddled with bacon. Bacon three ways. Is it Christmas in July, or is it too good to be true? A Thickburger with 3 different kinds of bacon on it? I don’t know about you but my first thought was my wish had been granted. This intrepid grubber is on the scene with your first taste of the new Bacon 3-Way Thickburger from Hardee’s. Hardee’s (also available at Carl’s Jr.) describes the new Bacon 3-Way Thickburger like this:
Applewood-Smoked Bacon Strips, Bacon Crumbles, Bacon Jam, lettuce, tomato, and cheese on a 100% Black Angus Beef patty.

I guess I’ve officially become a man, or received my special badge, crossed some invisible fast food breakfast threshold… as of this morning.So yes, it’s now the year 2016 and McGriddles debuted way back in 2003. Why review McGriddles now after so much time has passed? Well, I think I needed that self-imposed validation. How can I run this blog and continue to have that empty spot in my history? Another reason why I decided to review McGriddles now is that coming this fall, all-day breakfast at McDonald’s will be including the McGriddles nationally and not just regionally. I decided to go all-out with my first McGriddles experience by not limiting myself to sampling just one. … continue reading “Review: McGriddles from McDonald’s”
