Jack in the Box Bacon-ifies Its Latest Burger Threefold

Jan 30 2014 - 1:20pm


[1]We've got a new partnership with Foodbeast [2], which will be regularly sharing breaking food news, trendsetting recipes, and more with us. Today, Charisma Madarang reviews Jack in the Box's latest burger [3] to see if it sufficiently stuffs enough bacon between the buns.

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 Street in Santa Ana, CA. Naturally, we had our go-to fast foodie Peter [4] snap some glamour shots.

Curly fries were a must to this mini adventure, naturally:

Overall, the burger was really tasty, with the bacon adding a nice crunch to the beef patty. Pro tip: 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 Bork, a beef-pork spotted pig with horns that squeals "moink."

Seriously, we cannot make this biz up:

I kid you not — check this spot out, and watch it live on Feb. 2:
