Review: Carl's Jr. - Bacon Bacon Biscuit

Carl's Jr.'s Bacon Bacon Biscuit is your standard bacon, egg, and cheese sandwich, but with the addition of a slice of Canadian bacon

It's $2.29 per sandwich which is a pretty average price as far as these things go. It is a little bigger than other breakfast sandwiches since Carl's Jr.'s biscuit is hamburger-bun-sized.

For the most part, the Bacon Bacon Biscuit tastes much like you'd expect from a bacon, egg, and cheese biscuit sandwich.

The bacon was crispy, but thin and didn't provide much flavor beyond the typical saltiness. The cheese was a nice, melted goopy mess, which is really all that you can ask for. The egg was decently fluffy although I wonder what magics they enact to the super fluffy stuff they have in the promo pictures. The biscuit has a noticeable crusty exterior with a fluffy crumb inside.

It's the second bacon, the Canadian bacon, that makes the Bacon Bacon Biscuit a bit more interesting than the norm. It always puzzled me why we call it Canadian bacon when it's a thick-cut piece of smoky, cured ham. Regardless, it provides the bulk of the meaty flavor for the Bacon Bacon Biscuit and sets it apart from the typical breakfast sandwich.

The name's a bit gimmicky, but the sandwich itself is solid.

  2. I never got the whole Canadian bacon/ham thing either. I mean, I guess calling anything bacon makes it more appealing, but since I'm not a big fan of ham I've always felt it was a bit misleading in this case.


    It's hard to tell from the pictures that those biscuits are hamburger bun-sized, but if they truly are then this is something I need to try (in some kind of non-ham variety).

  3. They have a sausage, bacon, egg, and cheese option called the Monster Biscuit.

  5. True Canadian Bacon is not ham.
    It comes from the cuts on the back and is usually made of cold smoked pork tenderloin. It doesn't taste like ham because it isn't cured the same as ham. It's corporate blandness to use ham and call it Canadian Bacon.

  6. Who deleted your biscuit pics? It looks disgusting. Maybe that's why.
