Elie arrived at the office early this morning and mentioned that he passed by a Carl's Jr. somewhere near Costa Mesa that had a burger made with blueberry muffins. We dug around a little and discovered that Carl's was testing both blueberry muffin and cornbread buns for the breakfast sandwiches.
Unfortunately, the two items were at separate Carl's locations so we had to make two different stops. If only part of our job description was to drive around and try new fast foods.
The first spot was in Santa Ana. Here's the live stream.
Luckily, our second Carl's location was only a few miles away in Costa Mesa. We gassed up Elie's car and headed over.
Carl's serves their breakfast sandwiches with three meats: ham, bacon, or sausage. We asked them to throw all three into on for convenience.
We also decided to get a Famous Star with blueberry buns just for kicks. Here's what it looks like.
While the new bun options are only in its testing stages, it'll probably make a wider release this week to more Carl's spots. Each sandwich, minus the upgrades, costs $2.99.
