Darius already reviewed the ham version (it's also available with sausage), so I decided to try the bacon version since Carl's Jr. recently upgraded to "thick cut" bacon.
The bacon is indeed thicker than the paper thin stuff they were previously offering. The light smoky flavor is the same but incrementally stronger with the added thickness. That being said, typical of fast food "thick-cut," it's thin compared to the "thick-cut" you get at the supermarket. Still, it brings Carl's Jr. in line with the competition whereas before they were falling behind in the bacon game. It's average as far as fast food bacon goes and without much crisping to it.
The American cheese was mostly melted for a muted creaminess.
