  1. Just tried the new pork belly…rather disappointed, but my hopes weren’t too high anyways. The barbecue sauce is WAY too sweet. And the pork belly was burnt due to reheating. The sandwich definitely lacks balance. Oh well, at least the Jamocha shake will never disappoint.

    1. First off, that’s basically true of any fast food item. But considering I’ve seen some fairly no-frills burgers top out at over 1000 calories and nearly 2500mg of sodium, that sandwich stacks up pretty well.

  2. Pork belly kept reminding me of a cartoon but I didn’t know why. Finally remembered that Pork Belly is the name of the town in Johnny Test on Cartoon Network…. They could use him as the mascot for the sandwich and then for a salad, the evil Darth Vegan.

    I think Cow and Chicken (also on Cartoon Network) were always being fed pork bellies also by their parents. That was kind of gross. Both the food and the show.
