Sadly, it's not as exciting as it sounds

(Newser) – Just in case KFC’s Double Down isn’t sufficiently artery-clogging for you, Carl’s Jr. has the solution: A footlong cheeseburger. Creatively dubbed the “Footlong Cheeseburger,” the $4 sandwich is being tested in at least one California restaurant, the Orange County Register reports. The good news: The sandwich actually sticks out of the to-go bag. The bad news: Rather than crafting an actual footlong burger, Carl's Jr. employs three normal-size patties.

Expect to pay $4.50 if you want lettuce, tomato, and onions, and add $2.50 for a combo meal. If the burger makes it past the testing phase, that is: Reviewers so far seem unimpressed. FoodBeast has more pictures.

I am both disgusted and enticed.
