Back in September, 2009, I reviewed the Big Carl at Carl's Jr., a double cheeseburger with thousand island spread that was Carl's answer to the Big Mac. That burger is tasty and a worthy challenger. But, at 920 calories it blows the doors off the trimmer by comparison 540-calorie Big Mac.
For those who want the great taste of a thousand island burger in a smaller package, Carl's introduces the Little Carl, still a double cheeseburger but with smaller patties. What that does for your wasteline, however, remains to be seen, since as of press time there was no nutrition information published on the Carl's Jr. website for this sandwich.
