Feed Your Happy is feeling the heat with the new Spicy Western Bacon Cheeseburger.

Hungry for some bold flavor? The new Spicy Western Bacon Cheeseburger is coming to Carl’s Jr and Hardee’s this summer. While these two restaurants always seem to Feed Your Happy, the iconic Western Bacon Cheeseburger is getting a bold flavor twist. Can you handle this big bite?

The Western Bacon Cheeseburger has been a menu favorite since its debut in 1982. Looking at the numbers, the totals are quite impressive. From one cheeseburger being sold every 1.13 seconds to 27.5 million sold annually, people cannot get enough of the Western Bacon Cheeseburger.

For the summer, the classic menu item is getting a spicy makeover. The new Spicy Western Bacon Cheeseburger features “juicy charbroiled patty, topped with tangy BBQ sauce, jalapenos, onion rings and melty Pepper Jack cheese.” While this new cheeseburger brings the spice, the heat isn’t too overpowering. The jalapenos and Pepper Jack cheese are just enough to boost the flavor without setting your mouth on fire.

While the new menu item is available now, it is a limited-time offer. If you want to get a taste, you better act quickly.

The spicy update to the Western Cheeseburger isn’t the only new menu item. The plant-based menu option is getting a spicy upgrade, too. The new Beyond Spicy BBQ Cheeseburger is a plant-based version of the Spicy Western Bacon Cheeseburger. The only difference is the plant-based Beyond Burger patty.

To entice guests to try the Beyond Burger option, Carl’s Jr and Hardee’s are offering a special deal on the Beyond Spicy BBQ Cheeseburger. A single is just $5.19 and a combo is just $7.79, which is the same cost as the Spicy Western Bacon Cheeseburger. Prices may vary depending on location.

The addition of spicy menu items seems to be a trend. While these two menu items are classics, guests want a new way to enjoy them. By adding the jalapenos and Pepper Jack cheese, the flavor is slightly changed without losing the integrity of what fans love about this cheeseburger. In a way, the spicy update is a reason to place another order.

Whether you want a spicy upgrade or a taste of a classic, Carl’s Jr and Hardee’s are ready to Feed Your Happy. Are you hungry yet?
