THE TASTE OF NOSTALGIA: This was found by Musings of a Philosophical Scrivener.
As many fast-food chains are catering to the health-conscious, Hardee's is introducing the biggest and thickest of its Thickburgers -- one with enough calories to make Ronald McDonald blush.

The St. Louis-based chain on Monday rolled out its Monster Thickburger -- two 1/3-pound slabs of Angus beef, four strips of bacon, three slices of cheese and mayonnaise on a buttered sesame seed bun. The sandwich alone sells for $5.49, $7.09 with fries and a soda.

Even a news release touted the Monster -- at 1,420 calories and 107 grams of fat-- as "a monument to decadence."
I used to love their hamburgers, but that was back in college and after. Now this selfish chain has no stores at all in Texas. Isn't this a violation of some anti-trust law, to deny burger lovers here a chance to try this mouth-watering new concoction? If only there was a Democrat in the White House to sic the Justice Department on them....
