“After making a huge splash earlier this year with our Hand-Breaded Chicken line-up 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. “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.”
In addition to the exclusive Adult Swim meal in restaurants, Carl’s Jr. and Hardee's are hosting three Happy-Thons on Adult Swim, filled with your favorite shows including “Sealab 2021,” “Aqua Teen Hunger Force” and “Space Ghost Coast to Coast” on Oct. 8, Oct. 15 and Oct. 22 -- check your local listings.
“We always aim to bring our latest creations to life with timely and culturally relevant partnerships and campaigns -- therefore, Adult Swim and our Friday Happy-Thons are the perfect way to establish even more buzz around the Hot Honey Chicken Sandwiches,” said Patty Trevino, senior vice president of brand marketing at CKE Restaurants. “The network’s passionate followers appreciate both innovation and authenticity, which aligns with Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s consumers. We’re excited to tap into this strong fan base with the Adult Swim meal available in our restaurants.”
“Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s customers don’t have to pretend they have kids to dig into this exclusive Adult Swim meal. You’re never too old for a Meatwad figurine,” said Tricia Melton, chief marketing officer, Global Kids, Young Adults and Classics at Warner Brothers.
All three Hot Honey Chicken Sandwiches are now available for a limited time at participating Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s locations.
