Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s debut Hot Honey trio

Carls and Hardees Hot Honey lineup

Taking a leaf out of Shake Shack’s Summer release Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s are also jumping onboard the hot honey train with three new releases to their menus this month. Available on menus now:

  • Hot Honey Hand-Breaded Chicken Sandwich, with bacon and Swiss, $6.49
  • Hot Honey Hand-Breaded Chicken Biscuit
  • Hot Honey Hand-Breaded Chicken and Waffle Sandwich, $5.49

Each of the trio comes drizzled with the brand’s special Hot Honey Sauce, promising a little sweet and a little heat. And whether you choose the bun, savory biscuit or Belgian style waffles, each comes with a hand-battered all white meat chicken breast filet.

The three new menu items join the recently released fried chicken sandwich that we were big fans of back in June – see or full review of that sandwich here.
