I’m Old

On September 14, 2009, in General, by Neil Stevens

When I was a kid, we didn’t have regular Cokes in the house. We only had the flavorless fizzy stuff called Diet Coke that my mother drank. As a result I loved eating out because I could get the good stuff.

Carl’s Jr was the best of the bunch, too, because they were a pioneer in the serve-yourself free refill fountain. That was great. In fact it was so great I continued eating there as often as possible through high school and beyond.

Now, though, it just doesn’t feel right getting lemonade at their fountain. I have to though because I’m avoiding caffeine. So while I’m still happy with Carl’s burgers, it’s just not the same.

As an aside, for a while I’d stopped getting their combos entirely because I hate their new fries. Apparently I’m not the only one, because they now have a display up prominently offering substitutions for other items. It worked, too: I got a combo when I didn’t plan on it, because I could pay a little extra and get the crisscut fries.

If only they had caffeine free coke in the fountain.
