We’re glad the fast food world is starting to catch up with what we—and anyone who enjoys food, really—already knows: blue cheese and burgers should be best friends. April Bloomfield has been topping half pound patties with stinky Roquefort at her restaurant, The Spotted Pig, since it opened in 2004. Starting today, Carl’s Jr. has a new, limited-time Buffalo Blue Cheese Burger on its menu, which the chain launched to coincide with the beginning of football season. With a charbroiled beef patty topped with Frank’s Red Hot Buffalo Sauce, blue cheese crumbles, and Swiss cheese, this haute bad boy clocks in at 730 calories.
Of course, we all see through the act. This is not a burger at all, but just blue cheese-covered buffalo wings in a burger costume—but really, who’s complaining?
