Munchie Meals Return to Jack in the Box

A Hamburger Today Erin Jackson 14 comments

In a move that should be dubbed the most honest marketing campaign in fast food history, San Diego-based burger chain Jack in the Box is simultaneously promoting the return of four boxed combo meals and admitting that a good portion of their late-night customers are so stoned that consuming such an enormous amount of food late at night sounds like a great idea.

Reality Check: Hot Mess Burger at Jack in the Box

A Hamburger Today Erin Jackson 13 comments

If you were watching the Superbowl (or just the ads), you might have seen a spot for the newest burger at Jack in the Box: the "Hot Mess", with melted white cheddar, pepper jack cheese sauce, jalapeƱos, and onion rings on sourdough bread. Even though the burger doesn't visually measure up to the publicity shot, it's still one of the most promising burgers Jack has released in quite some time, even with some execution issues. More

Which Chain Makes the Best Ground Beef Taco?

Los Angeles Tacos Farley Elliott 35 comments

Save your steak burritos for another day. Leave your carnitas at home. We're talking ground beef tacos, the absolute baseline for Mexican fast food eats. Heck, a few chains that don't otherwise mess with the Mex at all (ahem, Jack in the Box) even have ground beef tacos on their board. So who has the tastiest, beefiest tacos? We found out. More

Fast Food Onion Ring Roundup: Burger King vs. Hardee's vs. Jack in the Box vs. Sonic

A Hamburger Today Todd Brock 59 comments

If you want a pouch of potato sticks, you can visit pretty much any fast food establishment on the planet. But if it's lunchtime and you want to put a ring on it, you've got to plot out your run a bit more carefully. The ring's the thing that decides many a burger destination. More

A Hamburger Today Adam Lindsley 6 comments

As part of the company's "Love Bacon? Marry It." advertising campaign, Jack in the Box recently released the BLT Bacon Cheeseburger in conjunction with its thoroughly heinous Bacon Shake. The result? Exactly what you would expect a burger from Jack in the Box to taste like. More

Drinks Adam Lindsley 26 comments

As part of Jack in the Box's recent and mildly disturbing "Love Bacon? Marry It." advertising campaign, the scientists slaving away in the fast food chain's laboratories have concocted a new milkshake that will either have you sprinting to the nearest franchise location or recoiling in horror: the Bacon Shake.

The burger will set you back $3.69 or $4.99 with a drink and fries. More

Jack in the Box: Breakfast Pita

Fast Food John M. Edwards 9 comments

Breakfast is becoming the new dinner, with many chains turning to breakfast as a means of customer acquisition: Burger King and Subway both recently began promoting breakfast, to name only a few. Breakfast isn't new to Jack in the Box, but the breakfast pita is. The sandwich consists of scrambled egg, bacon, ham, and American cheese all in half of a whole-wheat pita pocket. It builds off of their Chicken Fajita Pita, the first (and only) pita I've ever seen in a major fast food chain. More

Reality Check: The Jumbo Jack with Cheese

A Hamburger Today Damon Gambuto 39 comments

Unsurprisingly, the real life version of Jack in the Box's Jumbo Jack with cheese doesn't quite measure up to the stylized version. Here's the burger in all its lopsided glory. More

World's Strangest Fast-Food Items

Fast Food Carey Jones 39 comments

Photograph from Tavallai on Flickr The magicians at fast-food chains come up with all sorts of edible creations--each one a little less likely than the last. The San Francisco Weekly lists ten of the world's weirdest, including the White Castle "chicken ring," a Tuna Pie (erk) at Jollibee in the Philippines, and Pita Snacks from Jack in the Box. But are these really the strangest ones out there? I think Domino's Bread Bowl Pasta definitely qualifies. The Taco Bell Crunchwrap Supreme, too. And there's always McD's--looking beyond our own borders, McDonald's in Hong Kong has served seaweed-flavored French fries; New Zealand, a Quarter Pounder topped with egg and beetroot; and in the Philippines, sweet tomato pasta with hot dogs...

Pomegranate Sells Out to Jack in the Box

Fast Food Erin Zimmer 6 comments

theimpulsivebuy.com Pomegranate has been riding a pretty good high the last few years, appearing in juices, marinades, gum, lotions, and teas. Even if it's really not that much more exciting than a cranberry-grape-ish flavor, once you slap the pomegranate arils (fancy name for seeds) onto a product label, bam--automatically a few bucks more expensive. So what happens when the glam fruit appears on a Jack in the Box menu? Loses some respect? Or is the wide availability great? Starting this week, the Pomegranate Berry Smoothie will go for $2.99 (the small 16-ounce size), with 280 calories, zero fat, 69 grams of carbs, and 53 grams of sugar. Like many drinks that highlight one fruit, it's actually an amalgam of... More
