Last week's edition of Fight Club Sandwich pitted two fast-food chains' "premium" fish sandwiches against one another, as Wendy's Premium Cod Fillet Sandwich took on Burger King's Premium Alaskan Fish Sandwich.
Having declared Wendy's the victor, Gut Check figured we'd performed our fishly obligations and quickly toweled off the murky waters that surround fast-food fish sammies.
And then we got wet again.
Not long after we published the results of our taste test, the following e-mail popped up in our queue, from a Hardee's PR rep:
While we enjoyed reading your recent Gut Check showcasing a few fast-food restaurants' fish sandwiches, we couldn't help but notice you left out the most delicious option available. If you haven't yet heard, Hardee's recently released its prefect-for-Lent Charbroiled Atlantic Cod Fish Sandwich -- the first sandwich of its kind. We'd like to officially challenge the fish sandwich title holder with an option you won't find at any other fast food restaurant.
Dude. We'd heard. We just figured that like everything else Hardee's does, the ad for the product is more, um, substantial than the food item itself.
Following a brief debate at Gut Check International HQ, we decided to accept Hardee's request for a throwdown. First things first, though: Before going up against Wendy's cod piece, Nina Agdal's pride and joy would have to surpass the Burger King Premium Fish Sandwich that Wendy's beat.
|Ahem. Nina Agdal, Hardee's latest catch.|
