In an attempt to one-up the competition, Jack in the Box has released a bona fide bacon-infused patty. Candidly named the “Bacon Insider,” the new item comes decked out in a gourmet brioche bun, melted cheese, bacon mayo sauce and several bacon strips on top of a burger patty embedded with chunks of bacon.
We spotted the signage for the new item at a location on Main St. in Santa Ana, California. Naturally, we had our go-to fast foodie Peter snap some glamour shots.
Curly fries were a must to this mini adventure, naturally:

The shot below gives you a real closeup of the bacon chunks in the patty:
Overall, the burger was really tasty, with the bacon adding a nice crunch to the beef patty. Protip: order an extra side of bacon mayo to add a nice juicy sloppiness to the whole bacon-happy shebang.
At the moment, the Bacon Insider is available for a limited time at participating locations. The price is $4.99, but may vary by location.
OH, we also discovered that the new sandwich will be tied to a Super Bowl campaign featuring Jack and an animal dubbed as ‘Bork,’ a beef-pork spotted pig with horns that squeals “moink.”
Seriously, we can not make this biz up:
I kid you not — check this spot out, and watch it live on February 2nd:
Every month, SoCal-based burger chain Slater’s 50/50 unveils a new, completely over-the-top, featured hamburger for the month. In the past we’ve seen donut burgers, chorizo burgers, even orange chicken and kangaroo burgers.
Now, Slater’s wants to remind us that New Year’s Resolutions are hard, and skinny will never quite feel as good as bacon tastes, with its latest Excesstasy Burger and Ice Cream Sandwich, available through January.
The burger (and bear with me, because it’s a doozy): two brioche buns tenuously nestled around an all-natural beef patty, a bed of arugula and garlic tomato confit, another 100% ground bacon patty soaked in bone marrow butter, white cheddar, a WHOLE bacon grilled cheese sandwich, Southern Comfort whiskey drunken onions, and a sunny-side up egg, topped off with Slater’s house made thousand island aioli.
And the dessert sandwich: a fresh-basked peanut butter sugar cookie atop two scoops of chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream atop a giant homemade peanut butter cup atop two schools of vanilla ice cream, all atop a fresh-baked chocolate chip cookie.
Wash both down with a hoppy pale ale and a porter for a proper start to 2014. Who needs juice cleanses, anyhow?
