Jack In The Box Trolls McDonald’s On World’s Largest Digital Billboard

“Ice cream machines that work. What a concept.”

“Don’t get McShammed. Get Jack’s new Mint Shake.”

Jack In The Box said the above with its whole chest, throwing 40,000 square feet of shade at McDonald’s for the latter brand’s perpetually broken ice cream machines — all on the world’s largest digital billboard.

McDonald’s faulty ice cream machines have long been a running joke in the fast food world, so much so that website McBroken.com was developed to track which ones are not working.

In an all out assault on Mickey D’s mechanical woes and to promote its limited edition Oreo Cookie Mint Shake, Jack In The Box has taken over McBroken.com for the month of March as well as trolled its ice cream machine-challenged nemesis on the largest digital billboard in the world — which just so happens to be right next to a McDonald’s location in Downtown Los Angeles.

Your move McDonald’s. This frosty feud can only heat up.

The munchies, more often than not, is the perfect compass to a satisfying and unexpectedly brilliant meal. Take for instance the one time it led me to the pleasant surprise of having a Jack In The Box Bacon Ultimate Cheeseburger with a Sourdough buns.

Naturally, the munchies had me over-indulging, as my high ass ordered a Bacon Ultimate Cheeseburger and a Sourdough Jack.

I unwrapped the warm treasure, my anger suddenly melting away into astonishment as it revealed itself as a Bacon Ultimate Cheeseburger with Sourdough buns. And just like that, I knew that this is how I would order every Bacon Ultimate Cheeseburger from here on out.

Since the debut of Jack In The Box’s Tiny Tacos, the item has been a big hit for essentially being bite-sized versions of the chain’s iconic tacos. I myself have to admit that the ability to pop tacos like chips is a huge plus.

Capitalizing on the success of the item, Jack In The Box is now serving up a Tiny Taco Big Box meal, consisting of 25 Tiny Tacos meant for sharing (or not, I don’t judge) and three dipping sauces: Taco, Creamy Avocado Lime, and Buttermilk Ranch.

You can now grab a Tiny Taco Big Box at any participating Jack In The Box location nationwide.

Jack In The Box To Buy Del Taco for $575 Million

It’s been announced today that Jack In The Box will be acquiring Del Taco at $12.51 per share, or for an estimated $575 million. Too bad the Del’s Dollar Deals didn’t apply for this purchase.

Jack In The Box CEO, Darin Harris (sorry, not Jack Box), had the following to say regarding the acquisition, “This is a natural combination of two like-minded, challenger brands with outstanding growth opportunities. Together, Jack in the Box and Del Taco will benefit from a stronger financial model, gaining greater scale to invest in digital and technology capabilities, and unit growth for both brands. This acquisition fits squarely in our strategic pillars and helps us create new opportunities for the franchisees, team members and guests of both brands.”

For franchisees, this gives them the opportunity to open both Jack In The Box and Del Taco concepts, thus helping expand both the over 2,200-location Jack In The Box and over 600-location Del Taco brands.

The purchase is forecast to be completed by the first quarter of 2022, pending approval from Del Taco shareholders and regulators.
