FAST FOOD NEWS: Jack in the Box’s $5 Jack’s Munchie Meal

Jack in the Box s $5 Jack s Munchie Meal

Impulsive Buy reader @ReneBarba89 sent in this photo from a Jack in the Box location in Southern California of a new $5 version of Jack’s Munchie Meal. It appears to be somewhat similar to Wendy’s 4 for $4 deal in that you get to choose the sandwich and everything else in the meal is standard.

The original Munchie Meal comes with halfsie fries, two tacos, and a drink, but this $5 version comes with a small seasoned curly fries, two regular tacos, five mini churros, and no drink.

The sandwich choices are regular menu items, except for the Hash Jack, which appears to be a Jr. Jumbo Jack but with a hash brown, cheese, ketchup, mustard, and pickles.

The $5 Jack’s Munchie Meal isn’t currently listed on the Jack in the Box website and I haven’t seen it at my local Jack in the Box restaurant.
