Jack in the Box’s Pannidos are back!

You don’t remember the Pannidos? Well, you’re not alone because I don’t remember them either. But, here’s a brief history lesson, thanks to Google and Jack in the Box, who don’t delete web assets from its website.

The original version was introduced on February 23, 2004 and there were three varieties served with foot-long, toasted ciabatta baguettes — Zesty Turkey, Ham and Turkey, and the Deli Trio.

In 2018, there are only two — Turkey, Bacon & Cheddar and the Deli Trio.

The Turkey, Bacon & Cheddar comes with smoked turkey, bacon, cheddar cheese, and a creamy Italian sauce on toasted ciabatta bread. Its nutrition facts aren’t up on the website at time of publication. But we’ll update this post when it does.

The Deli Trio features smoked turkey, ham, salami, dill pickle slices, and a creamy Italian sauce on toasted ciabatta bread. It has 580 calories, 30 grams of fat, 7 grams of saturated fat, 0 gram of trans fat, 75 milligrams of cholesterol, 2550 milligrams of sodium, 47 grams of carbohydrates, 2 grams of fiber, 6 grams of sugar, and 31 grams of protein.

FAST FOOD NEWS: Burger King Cheesy Bacon Crispy Chicken Sandwich

Update: We reviewed it! Click here to read our review.

After reading about the Burger King Whoppers being sold in Green Bay, Wisconsin that have eight slices of American cheese, I’m a little disappointed by the cheesiness of the chain’s new Cheesy Bacon Crispy Chicken Sandwich.

The sandwich comes with a 100 percent white meat seasoned crispy chicken filet, bacon, American cheese, and layers of cheese sauce on a toasted potato bun. That’s a lot of dairy, but it’s no eight slices of it.

The cheesy sandwich has 650 calories, 32 grams of fat, 10 grams of saturated fat, 0.5 gram of trans fat, 90 milligrams of cholesterol, 1980 milligrams of sodium, 59 grams of carbohydrates, 2 grams of fiber, 8 grams of sugar, and 31 grams of protein.

FAST FOOD NEWS: Panda Express Sichuan Hot Chicken

Panda Express Sichuan Hot Chicken Test

After everyone and their aunties came out with chicken strips over the past two years, Panda Express is testing its own.

The chain is calling it Sichuan Hot Chicken and it features large, crispy strips of all-white meat chicken tossed in a spicy, Sichuan-inspired sauce. It’s also available Extra Spicy. The photo above was sent in by reader RaveGyrl, who took it at the Panda Express location in Calumet City, IL. She also tried it and shared her thoughts:

Yes, I tried it and it was amazing. They were like chicken tenders kind of like the Honey Sesame Chicken. The batter was still crunchy even with the sauce on it. It was really spicy and the heat stayed with me for a while. This is one of the first dishes I had at Panda Express where there wasn’t a sweet element to it. I would definitely get this again.

A serving, which appears to be three pieces, has 510 calories, 3.5 grams of saturated fat, 80 grams of carbohydrates, and 13 grams of protein.
