The article covers some alternatives at the drive-thru, especially steering clear of always ordering cheeseburgers and opting for some more vegetarian options. Eat on!


New Jack in the Box Branding

An interesting new update to Jack in the Box logo has been making its appearances at a location in San Diego. The new logo seems to lack any lettering, but instead ops for silhouette of their Jack mascot. No word just yet if this branding will be making its way to other locations, but if you guys have any pictures of new branding, feel free to hop over to our contact page and send us an e-mail, we’d appreciate it!

Jack In The Box Mini Churros

Yet even more news in from Jack in the Box. Showcasing tempting sugar and cinnamon flavors, they have introduced a new dessert called Mini Churros, based on the Latin pastries made popular by street vendors. The crunchy bite-sized desserts are made of fried dough with a cinnamon-sugar filling. Jack in the Box says that smaller sized desserts have been growing in popularity and the new treats are perfect for people who want a quick snack or lil’ something sweet after their meal. Mini Churros are available in a 5-piece for $1.00 and a 10-piece for $1.89. Delicioso!


Jack In The Box Homestyle Chicken Fillet

Jack in the Box tempted us with some Asian flavors yesterday and today they are showing some love those yearning for home-cooked taste. The new Homestyle Chicken Fillet has crispy buttery coating and is being served on two brand new sandwiches: the Homestyle Ranch Chicken Club and Breakfast Homestyle Chicken Biscuit. The Chicken Club has the chicken fillet between a toasted bakery-style bun with bacon, Swiss cheese, lettuce, tomato and ranch dressing. To score some breakfast, you can get the Homestyle Chicken Biscuit, which nestles a chicken fillet in between a warm, fluffy buttermilk biscuit. Homestyle Ranch Chicken Club will cost you $4.29 and the Breakfast Biscuit is $2.99, both available all day.


Jack in the Box Teriyaki Bowls

In 1993 Jack dropped some Asian flavor on his fans with the teriyaki bowls. They were a big hit with the customers and nobody was happy when they were taken off the menu in 2003. Obviously the bowls made a lasting impact, as many customers took up arms and requesting Jack in the Box to bring them back. Well now, five years since their departure, they are back and better than ever.

The new teriyaki bowls come steamed white rice, brocolli florets, carrots and all white meat chicken or sirloin steak. It’s all brought together with lots of flavorful teriyaki sauce and served in sealed bowl for clean and easy transport.
