Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s have officially debuted their brand-new line of Hot Honey Chicken Sandwiches today, and to make the launch more exciting, both fast food restaurant chains have teamed up with Adult Swim for a one-of-a-kind promotion.
During lunch and dinner hours, beginning September 22nd through November 7th, customers can make any combo meal an Adult Swim meal featuring an exclusive figurine, Adult Swim-themed cup, and a large order of fries. The figurines are characters from six fan-favorite Adult Swim shows, including Robot Chicken, Metalocalypse, and Sealab 2021.
Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s Hot Honey Chicken lineup is comprised of three new sandwiches, which are as follows:
Hot Honey Hand-Breaded Chicken Sandwich: This sandwich features hand-breaded chicken topped with crispy bacon, melty cheese, and drizzled with hot honey sauce, all between a premium potato bun.
Hot Honey Hand-Breaded Chicken Biscuit: For breakfast, this sandwich features hand-breaded chicken topped with hot honey sauce between fluffy, made-from-scratch biscuit.
Hot Honey Hand-Breaded Chicken and Waffle Sandwich: Available all day, this sandwich features hand-breaded chicken nestled between two Belgian style waffles and topped with hot honey sauce.
“After making a huge splash earlier this year with our Hand-Breaded Chicken lineup, we’ve decided to bring the heat – plus a little sweet – with our Hot Honey lineup aimed to continue to WOW our customers with flavor they can’t get anywhere else,” said Owen Klein, vice president of global culinary innovation at CKE Restaurants, in a statement. “Our hot honey sauce is a match made in heaven with our hand-breaded chicken, surely our guests will be asking for it long after it’s gone.”
As part of the collaboration between Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s and Adult Swim, the restaurant chains will also be hosting three Happy-Thons on Adult Swim. Filled with fun shows like Sealab 2021, Aqua Teen Hunger Force, and Space Ghost Coast to Coast, the said Happy-Thons are scheduled to air on October 8th, 15th, and 22nd.
All three Hot Honey Chicken Sandwiches are now available for a limited time at participating Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s locations.
