Carl's Jr.'s new, limited-time Super Bacon Cheeseburger (and Hardee's Super Bacon Thickburger) is offered as a promotional tie-in with the upcoming Superman movie (Man of Steel). It's main feature is that it contains 6 strips of bacon. The rest of the burger is pretty standard: toasted sesame bun, American cheese, onions, tomatoes, lettuce, and mayo.
These are $4.19 each for the single patty version at my local Carl's Jr. restaurant.
There's a circular Man of Steel sticker to seal the wrapper... and to drive the point home that this is a Superman-themed burger:
Famous Star with Cheese, but without the ketchup.
That being said, the first thing I noticed as I unwrapped the burger was the fatty smell of bacon grease. There's a lot of bacon here. Enough for an even layer that had me tasting smoky bacon in every bite. It wasn't crispy and was the standard paper-thin variety, but it was tasty. I'm not sure if it was super bacon, but there was ample coverage and plenty of bacony goodness!
