REVIEW: Jack in the Box Mini Buffalo Ranch Chicken Sandwiches

If Jack in the Box are “herding cows the size of schnauzers, but they’re cattle” for their Mini Sirloin Burgers, then I wonder what they’re using for their new Mini Buffalo Ranch Chicken Sandwiches.

Oh wait…Could it be?

Tweety Bird! Nooooooooooo!

It looks like Jack was able to do what Sylvester the Cat couldn’t. Sufferin’ Succotash! It seems like for Tweety, it’s Th-Th-Th-Th-That’s all, folks! I guess instead of the puddy tat, Tweety taw a puddy Jack!

Aaaah, Looney Tunes references — so 1950s.

Jack in the Box’s Mini Buffalo Ranch Chicken Sandwiches comes in a pack of three and each is made up of white meat homestyle chicken filets, a drizzle of lettuce, ranch sauce and Frank’s RedHot Sauce. I don’t know Frank, nor do I know the reason why he made RedHot a compound word, but I do know that the sauce is tasty, although it wasn’t as redhot as I hoped. The lack of redheat might’ve been caused by the addition of the whitecool ranch dressing, which if that’s the case, would be a shame for those who really enjoy the redspice of buffalo sauce.

The lack of heat also might’ve been caused by the semi-conservative use of Frank’s RedHot Sauce on each mini chicken sandwich. While I could taste the sauce, I really wish they dipped the chicken filets in the sauce, like they were Salem witches, instead of just topping them. I think doing that might make up for the unnecessary gram of trans fat per mini sandwich. The ranch sauce, while quite visible when pulling back the top bun, wasn’t noticeable flavor-wise, the chicken filets were slightly tough and the lettuce was just there, like the stiff-bodied person on the bottom of a sexual position who is having no fun or significantly less fun than their partner on top.

Overall, I thought the Jack in the Box Mini Buffalo Ranch Chicken Sandwiches were decent, but they don’t come close to being as tasty as the Mini Sirloin Burgers. I guess, for some reason, cows the size of schnauzers seem to taste better than Tweety Bird.

  1. @Shannon: As long as JITB keeps coming up with stuff, I’ll keep reviewing it.

    @Chuck: Yesterday, a local newscast had a question of the day that asked which stores/restaurants would we like to see in Hawaii and they got a lot of responses for an Olive Garden. I responded to the question by saying (BTW, they collected responses via Twitter) “I would like to knock down a Jack in the Box on King Street and replace it with an In-N-Out.” There are three Jack in the Box restaurants on King Street within a five mile stretch.

  2. YUCK YUCK YUCK! I just ate one of the 3 mini buffalo ranch chicken sandwiches and it’s yucky! this is exactly how it tastes – the sauce is pretty tangy, the sandwiches r DAMN dry with 1-2 shred of lettuce – bottom line – stay away from it. if u have IN&OUT,now that’s the burger we r talking about!
