I stopped at Jack in The Box the other day for lunch. I noticed that they had not one, not two, but three new cheesy items! Whatever should I do?!?!? I think I’ll order them all! Jack in the Box is now serving a Nacho Cheeseburger ($1.49) a Nacho Chicken Sandwich ($1.49) and Cheesy Macaroni Bites (Fried Mac and Cheese $2.99 for 6).
I ordered all three and took them to go. I got back to my office and unwrapped my cheesy feast. I was excited about all three items, so I didn’t know where to start. I finally decided to start with the chicken sandwich. I wasn’t expecting much, but I was pleasantly surprised. This was really good. The nacho cheese and jalapenos added a burst of cheesy flavor.
Next, I moved on to the burger. This was of course very similar to the chicken sandwich. I felt that the flavor of the burger patty didn’t go quite as well with the nacho cheese and jalapenos. I still enjoyed the burger, but I thought the chicken sandwich was better.
Last up were the cheesy macaroni bites. I was so excited to try these little fried triangles. I took a bite and my excitement faded. They weren’t horrible, but they were pretty greasy and bland. At $2.99 for an order of 6, I think these are way overpriced. Maybe if they were 6 for 99 cents, I’d order them again.
I went on the Jack in the Box website to try and find the nutritional value of my meal. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find anything on the nacho sandwiches. They had the info for the cheesy bites though. An order of 6 cheesy bites had 444.2 calories and 25.4 grams of fat including 9.6 grams of saturated fat and 4.2 grams of trans fat. Blech. I think I’ll avoid these in the future.
