Carl's Jr.

When we last checked in with Carl's Jr., they were launching a snickerdoodle ice cream sandwich to mock the East Coast. This time, they've engineered something that everyone can enjoy year-round: bacon ranch fries. It's as simple as an order of fries with ranch and bacon bits on top, but it's guaranteed to please -- especially those who have been living in a no-ranch police state. Grab some on the cheap with this Carl's Jr. coupon, and make your grandma proud that you're being so thrifty.
