Phoood on a Carl's Jr. Cup!

cjcup.jpgAs you may have noticed, Phoood has been on hiatus since November 2005. I'm still not sure if the posts will continue. It's a lot of work to eat that much food, and I'm already trying to watch my weight. Also, my attempts at finding contributors to write reviews was unsuccessful. Drop me an e-mail if you have an opinion.

I want to thank Carl's Jr. for acknowledging on the side of their drink cups. I had not known about this until recently, when Phoood fan Steven e-mailed me. They have used a quote from my June 2004 review of their Double Six Dollar Burger: "Carl's Jr.'s new burger ... ranks up there among the best." Of course, I immediately went to my local Carl's Jr. to get the two cups (medium paper cup and extra-large plastic cup) to save for posterity. I'm honored that they think my opinion is relevant.

UPDATE - 9/15/06
I just found out that they have also put the quote on their bags.

That's actually how I got here (your quote on the Carl's Jr. cup)! I think it's kinda terrific that your blog got noticed/mentioned in that way...and now I have another blog to read!

Good job getting on Carl's Jr. cups. Now where's your advertising? It might make you want to stay if you put a couple Google ads up.

Posted by: maenterprises at September 7, 2006 12:45 PM

Gotta luv carls jr. I thought that comment was another false marketing gimmick. Had to check out the addy to confirm. Seeing is believing.!!

Posted by: gigi at October 10, 2006 10:05 AM

i got to your site because i saw the quote on the carl's jr cup... the word Phoood really caught my attention... by the way, the quote is also on the french fries sleeves.

Posted by: johnbaik at October 11, 2006 1:18 PM

I also found your website because of the quote on a Carls Jr (my favorite fast food restaurant!) cup. At first, I couldn't understand what kind of website this was but before I reached for my dictionary I was able to figure out the pronunciation of "phoood!"

Posted by: Gary at October 14, 2006 5:47 PM

Kudos for your Carl's review! I'm drinking out of one of those cups right now... Had to get back to my desk so I could visit your great site.

Posted by: Tr@cerBullet at October 17, 2006 1:43 PM

Haha, I found this website through that quote!

Mmmmm, double $6 burger, it's sooo big, and tasty.....

I'll use this website for "phoood" related stuff.....

Posted by: AWDfreak at October 22, 2006 7:22 PM

that's cool, I was eating some fries and found you site, I'm in california

Posted by: JACKIE at October 27, 2006 4:28 PM

thanks so much...

Posted by: rOGER gARCIA at October 31, 2006 2:55 PM

Haha... I got to your site cuz of your quote on the cup dude.. Keep up the good work.

I do hope you read this. I also got to the site courtesy of Carl's Jrs (the Fry box). My comment is that you really need to put some time into reading these posts. I went to the Taco Bell one & about half of them need to be deleted due to language or it not having anything to do with food, much less Taco Bell.
Other than that, the site's a great idea & I'd like to help. I don't haved Lotus Notes so can't email you.

Posted by: Mariellen at November 4, 2006 10:56 AM

Another blog that jast came upon your quote. Congrats! I found u!

Posted by: Danny at November 6, 2006 3:50 PM

They also have the quotes on the fries as well as the cups and bags.

Posted by: Kuids at November 12, 2006 3:31 PM

yeah, it was the cup. caught my attention right away. got mine in DeSoto, Tx at Polk n I-20. Carl's Jr. is pretty good. thumbs up on the recognition.

Posted by: T-bone at November 17, 2006 12:11 PM

your rating for Carl's Jr. rocks. im looking at the cup with ur quote right now! keep up the good rating on Carl's Jr. my friend!

Posted by: Vadim at November 17, 2006 11:21 PM

you know i eat at fast food resteronts alot but dont get fat.

Posted by: Danielle at November 24, 2006 12:39 PM

Congrats on being put on the Carls Jr. cups. Shows just how powerful the internet has become. Keep up the great reviews.

Posted by: Joe at November 29, 2006 7:50 PM

your cup is how i knew about this web sight

Posted by: danielle at December 1, 2006 6:06 PM

Thats awesome! I'm sitting here at work, and realized there was a domain name on the cup. You should place a Google Adsense banner on your homepage, and cash in on all this traffic. A 728x90 would fit nicely. good luck!!!!

Posted by: Ted at December 5, 2006 1:41 PM

I'm just curious what was there before they entered the dot dot dot "..."?

Posted by: at December 26, 2006 10:47 PM

They must have also chose your site over others because all of your Carls Jr and Hardees ratings are good or excellent, and almost all other fast food establishments have a negative rating on at least one of their food items.

Posted by: Mike at January 3, 2007 2:00 PM

Thats how i get here....Nice Name "domain"

Posted by: Neil at January 5, 2007 3:06 PM

hey did you get like royalties or something for that?

Posted by: unkown at January 6, 2007 9:35 AM

Did you retire? No posts for almost 6 months?

Posted by: pooku at January 9, 2007 12:42 AM

im going to carl's jr haha well just letting you know and omg i know i've seen the quotes

Posted by: iLoVeToEaTjUsTliKeEveRYoNe at January 10, 2007 4:05 PM

Why would a big corporation like Carl Karcher Enterprises quote a personal blog. This is weird.

Posted by: Tammy at January 17, 2007 10:04 AM

Posted by: steve at January 27, 2007 7:08 PM

I found about this site because of the super size cup hehehehe I like Carl`s JR phood although I would never drink a soda this size!!!!!

Posted by: Cesar Victorica at February 1, 2007 3:47 PM

this drink was not refreshing..

Posted by: bob smith at February 3, 2007 8:32 PM

im drinking out of one right now also just thought id see what was all about that dude needs to post more about PHOOOD

Posted by: MATT at March 7, 2007 9:44 AM

Great job!! I saw your name on the side of the cup as well. I thought is was a joke, so I thought I would type your address in and see if it was real. I love the reviews!!!

Posted by: Nadine at March 11, 2007 6:25 PM

I just ate at Carl's JR and it is the best, I saw the label posted by phood, and your right it does rank up there among the best! I think every time I go there I am going to get something different and see what my favorite is.

Posted by: Kortni at March 24, 2007 12:43 PM

I would really like people to go and try Carl's JR especially if you havent ate there yet, I think you will also say it is the best. Carl's JR is'nt like any other fast food place, even though the food is on your table before you can even sit down. AND IT HAS SO MUCH FLAVOR!!!!


Posted by: Kortni at March 24, 2007 12:48 PM

I noticed it on the carl's jr. cup and i dont know what this websit is all about!

Posted by: Bryan at March 31, 2007 10:50 PM

yep, thats how i got to know this site. all because i saw that quote on a carl's jr. cup. only problem is... i thought you were talking about the philly cheesesteak burger, which, in my opinion, is one of the greatest creations that has ever spawned from a fast food restraunt. you should try it out.

Posted by: chrislz at April 5, 2007 9:10 PM

Real men of genius. Don't let this blog die.

Posted by: ted at April 13, 2007 9:21 AM

I haven't been to Carl's in the longest time. Walked in yesterday, and noticed the quote today on the cup. Good food!

Posted by: Mike at April 15, 2007 12:19 PM

Posted by: Carls consumer at December 19, 2007 2:53 PM

Posted by: OSCAR G at September 2, 2008 12:58 PM

I found out about you through this! Did you know the large fry holder has the quote on the back of it? LOL

Posted by: Brooke at June 27, 2009 10:33 PM

I found out about your site off my large drink from Carl's today. I've enjoyed looking around at your reviews - thanks for sharing them!

Posted by: Tom at July 20, 2009 12:08 AM
