The Monster Breakfast SandwichT Takes the Growl Out of Your Morning
CARPINTERIA, Calif. - July 23, 2008 - A growling stomach is a thing of the past as Carl's Jr.® introduces a new breakfast item as big as its famously-filling burgers - the Monster Breakfast SandwichT. The newest mega-sized morning offering is sure to tame even the most monstrous appetite for the all-important first meal of the day. The sandwich is filled with all of the classic breakfast favorites, including two eggs, two strips of bacon, a sausage patty and Swiss and American cheeses piled between grilled sourdough bread.
The Monster Breakfast Sandwich also serves as the kick-off for new positioning of the entire Carl's Jr. breakfast menu, featuring the tagline, "Breakfast as big as our burgersT."
"As we looked for compelling ways to make Carl's Jr. breakfast menu stand out from the crowd, our consumer research revealed that many people felt that typical fast-food breakfast items really didn't fill them up, so much so that they often ordered two sandwiches at a time to get enough food," said Brad Haley, executive vice president of marketing for Carl's Jr. "So, we've satisfied that need in a big way with the new Monster Breakfast Sandwich. While it dwarfs the usual fast-food fare out there, with two eggs, sausage, bacon and cheese, it really is more like the amount of food you would get for breakfast in any diner. And, to help convey that idea, we will be running humorous television ads that depict people at various types of restaurants ordering breakfasts in tiny portions, while the announcer intones, 'You wouldn't eat like this in a restaurant. Why do it in a fast food place?'"
Taking inspiration from its sister chain Hardee's® success with high-quality, filling breakfast items, the Monster Breakfast Sandwich joins other favorites on the Carl's Jr. breakfast menu including the popular Breakfast BurgerT, featuring a charbroiled burger patty, topped with egg, bacon, cheese and hash browns, and several hefty breakfast burritos, including the popular Steak and Egg offering made with fresh salsa.
The Monster Breakfast Sandwich will sell for $2.89 a la carte or $4.49 as part of a combo. Prices may vary.

How do you know whether or not McDonalds is still serving breakfast? Well, usually you just check your watch. If it's earlier than 10:30 am, they are. If it's later, they aren't. Pretty simple. But what if you don't have a watch? Don't worry — one Chicago McDonald's has you covered.
Finalist In McDonalds/MySpace Jingle Contest Is Former McDonalds Armed
Well, here’s something that’s so ridiculous it couldn’t be made up. McDonald’s teamed up with MySpace to create a new jingle for the 40th anniversary of the Big Mac. The original song (two all beef patties, special sauce, lettuce…) was created back in 1974. Over 1,000 user created songs and videos were submitted - the winner’s jingle becomes the official Big Mac song and will be featured in a McDonald’s Big Mac TV commercial.
