To promote the sandwich, Burger King is trolling one of its fellow fast food chains — KFC.

Also, if you’re into collecting fast food packaging, there are limited edition “K.F.G.” sandwich wrappers at select restaurants in Kentucky, Miami, Los Angeles, and New York.

FAST FOOD NEWS: Jack in the Box Burger Dippers

Jack in the Box Burger Dippers

I thought Burger King’s Whopperito was the weirdest burger-that’s-not-really-burger. But that has been replaced with Jack in the Box’s new Burger Dippers.

The photo above was sent in by TIB reader Austin in Davis, CA, who said of the finger food, “It tastes like they literally put a whole burger in a blender and then deep fried it.” It’s part of a new $6 all day Munchie Meal Box that also includes two tacos, curly fries, and a drink. The Burger Dippers are also available a la carte for $3 and sauce is available upon request.

It isn’t available on the main Jack in the Box site, so it might be a test item. Doing some quick Googling I came upon a commercial for the new $6 Munchie Meals that features the Burger Dippers and the new Jr. Double Jack.

If you’ve tried the Burger Dippers or have seen it at your local Jack in the Box, let us know in the comments.

Jack in the Box Super Jack d Monday Box

As you all know, the Super Bowl is this Sunday featuring one team many people are sick of seeing in the Super Bowl and another team the residents of New Orleans feel shouldn’t be in the game because of those (insert expletive here) referees. The day will also be full of food, booze, and Budweiser TV commercials.

Jack in the Box wants to make your Day After the Super Bowl a little easier with its Super Jack’d Monday Box. It features two tacos, 10 chicken nuggets, curly fries, an egg roll, and a small drink for $6.

It’s available for one day only on Monday, February 4 and you can preorder one for delivery on Monday, exclusively through DoorDash. But, you can also pick one up like how you used to get fast food before online food delivery apps were a thing by going to the restaurant.

If you decide to eat the entire box, it has, not including the dipping sauces for the nuggets and egg roll and beverage, 1248 calories, 74 grams of fat, 13 grams of saturated fat, 0 gram of trans fat, 74 milligrams of cholesterol, 2863 milligrams of sodium, 103 grams of carbohydrates, 11 grams of fiber, 4 grams of sugar, and 39 grams of protein.
