Carl's Jr. Is Testing the Ice Cream Brrrger: Great Idea or Just Gross?

We’re all for innovative desserts. But an ice cream sandwich that looks like a burger? We’re not sure about that one.

The Ice Cream Brrrger is currently being tested at a number of Carl’s Jr. locations in Orange County, CA. Once the trial period is over, the fast food company will analyze sales data and guest feedback before deciding whether or not to release the item nationwide.

The dessert costs $1.99 and features disturbingly beefy-looking chocolate ice cream sandwiched between two sugar cookie buns. The Brrger also includes drizzles of multi-colored icing placed to resemble burger toppings—ketchup, cheese, lettuce, etc. (That’s the part we find least appetizing.)

Foodbeast commented that the timing of this menu addition is particularly interesting considering that Carl’s Jr. continues to promote their OREO Ice Cream Sandwich. They questioned whether or not there is room on the menu for two such desserts.

We certainly give Carl’s Jr. credit for creativity. But—even though we love both burgers and ice cream sandwiches—there is just something about the combination that makes us queasy.

What about you SodaHeads? Do you think the Ice Cream Brrrger is a great idea or just gross?

    They also make cakes that look like burgers. Have a slice of that with some of the ice cream burger!

    But they should fix the frosting.

    After spending time helping my dad unwrap endless amounts of Twinkie packages for his pigs, I realize how truly horrifying our country is.

    It's ok, I mean think about it, it's a catchy product being it is copied after a hamburger.

    I can't see what's so 'gross' about it. It's just ice cream, shaped like a burger. I have no complaints if it tastes great :D

    It's not a great idea, it's...utterly mundane. Food, particularly desserts, have been shaped to look like other non dessert food for ages. Hell, there is already the Choco Taco. The fact that it's shaped like a burger isn't even unusual or creative: it's downright cliche.

    Might be tasty... but a little odd.

    The question is not how it looks! The question is how does it taste? It would seem, however, that professional marketing experts would want you to make your product as attractive to look at as possible. I say great idea, but most would say "just gross." It is probably a mixed bag!

    Sugar cookies still taste like sugar cookies and chocolate ice creame still tastes like chocolate ice cream, so what if its shaped like a burger, its still cookies and ice cream!!!

    if you look at it as ice cream and cookies vs. being a burger it doesn't look as bad but still...

    We always need new ways to increase food additives, caloric intake, and food coloring. They should be bigger and come in huge packages.

    Even as a kid, I liked things to look like what they are. I'm sure it's tasty, but the fake colors turn me off, and probably are made with some extremely unhealthy chemical crap.

    Come on people, How is it nasty? Just because it looks like a burger? In my opinion it is a great idea, I love ice cream. (:

    its on the borderline for me...great as a one off novelty to try, but it is a bit overboard with the frosting designed to look like condiments and lettuce.

    I'm not going to say that I won't try one but not at that price.
    I'm still triing to get over the fried ice cream.

    Obvious about the chocolate and cookies, the turnoff is the multicolor icing drizzles; ahh no"
