Jack in the Box Monster Taco

Purchased Price: $1.49*
Size: N/A
Purchased at: Jack in the Box
Rating: 6 out of 10
Pros: Tastes just like a regular Jack in the Box Taco. Parts of shell not soaked with grease are extremely crunchy. Now a regular menu item. Filling doesn’t fall out as easy as it does with Taco Bell tacos. Jack in the Box’s plans to come out with different Monster Taco varieties. Why do these tacos look so horrible, but taste so good?
Cons: Jack’s Two Tacos are more substantial and cheaper than a Monster Taco. The larger the taco, the larger the patch of grease it has. Has trans fat. The grease patch on the Monster Taco shell is almost the same size as a regular Jack in the Box taco.

*Because I live on a rock in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, things are a bit pricier here. You’ll probably pay less than I did.

    I’m so glad my favorite late night grind is back! The JIB baby tacos just weren’t cutting it heft-wise. Oh, heartburn, I sooo missed you (wistfully with (slanty) doe eyes).

    I complained loudly to JITB when the Monster Tacos disappeared around 2007. I praised them just as loudly when they gave them back to us! It’d be nice if they weren’t quite so chintzy with the meat…or whatever that happens to be…LOL, but dayum they are good. I buy them 6 at a time. That’s 2 meals for me.
