I have seen the ads for this and it looks good. Has anyone had one?

    I personally like the chilli, just enough bite to it. It is messy though, they should use more substantial wrapping paper. If you go to their website, http://www.carlsjr.com/
    They have a dollar off coupon.

      Ah, but that is their whole marketing strategy, the messier the better. Not sure if this holds true, haven't tried it myself, but sounds good.

      The commercial is disgusting. The one with the guy that has chili all over his face? Looks like he rubbed himself with a diaper, and for that reason alone, I cant find it appealing at all.

        Azizeh - Uughh, after that comment I think a lot of people are gonna agree w/ you and sales to readers of the post are gonna plummet faster than the Dow recently.

          Haha, terribly sorry! I probably should've kept that one to myself. But, as food people, we know that presentation accounts for a lot. We eat with our eyes first. And there's just no way that that commercial makes me hungry or makes me think, "Hey, I want that!" Man, it's gross.

            How about the latest one. The guy is eating it as carefully as possible and not really making a mess until, plop. He drops a plop on his nice, once clean trousers. He looks sad, thinking that he is sad because he has stained them, but no! He is sad b/c he doesn't want to waist the chili, so he decides to have chili fries and take a fry and uses it to p/u the chili from his pants Yeah, just what we all want, chili fries from our pants.

              Wow - I opened a "literal" can of worms ! I have not seen the commercials - the "ad" I saw was a print ad in the newspaper and it was a stand alone chilli cheese burger - and it looked good!!
              Now I am thinking....not so much....

          Their commercials are just that, advertisements for the merchandise. They did their job and you noticed them. Carl's Jr burgers are some of the most juicy ones around--much better than the dried out ones found at most other chains. You really do need to grab a handful of napkins when you eat one.
