Jack in the Box Classic Chicken Ciabatta

Classic Chicken Ciabatta

Oh Jack in the Box, when will you learn?

You can’t give your food items funny names without them getting teased. First it was Pannido? Now it’s Ciabatta? What are you trying to do, get them beat up?

Well, now that I think about it, it shouldn’t be so surprising coming from Crack in the Box…Oh, wait, I mean, Crap in the Box…I mean, Wack in the Box…

Anyway, here are a couple of examples of how poor Ciabatta could be teased:

Hakuna Ciabatta! What a wonderful phrase. Hakuna Ciabatta! Ain’t no passing craze. It means no worries for the rest of your days. It’s our problem-free philosophy. Hakuna Ciabatta!

Or someone could say, “Hey Ciabatta! Where’s Han Solo and the Millennium Falcon?”

If there’s anyone who knows what it’s like to have their name teased it would be me. For example, there’s Marvo the Retardo, Marvo the Bizzaro, Marvo the Lardo, Marvo the Farto…







Oh sorry, I was having a schoolyard flashback.

Anyway, the Jack in the Box Classic Chicken Ciabatta is a new sandwich with a grilled chicken breast on a lightly toasted ciabatta bun with reduced fat herb mayo, sliced tomatoes, green leaf lettuce, and red onion slices.

Of course, the highlight of the sandwich is the Ciabatta, a bread with a crispy hard crust and a soft center, which is much like regular Italian bread and my pale body when it’s been out in the sun for too long.

Unfortunately, the Ciabatta bread didn’t add anything to the taste of the sandwich. Neither did the reduced fat herb mayo. At least it’s high in protein, which will help me build some muscles on my pale body.

It’s sure a whole lot easier than shooting steroids into my ass.

Item: Jack in the Box Classic Chicken Ciabatta
Purchase Price: $5.79 (small combo)
Rating: 2.5 out of 5
Pros: Ciabatta bread was fluffy, like hair styles from the 1980s. High in protein.
Cons: Pricey. Ciabatta bread doesn’t add to the taste. Reduced herb mayo was bland. Easy name to make fun of. Hakuna Ciabatta!

  1. How about Marvo the Magnificent! Love your reviews…love you….well, In a reviewer – reviewee sort of way 🙂

  2. Kind of makes me feel bad that we don’t have Jack in the Box restaurants where I live. On second thought, maybe not.

  3. My favorite sandwich ever was a turkey club on ciabatta bread from a deli at the mall in Birmingham, Alabama. Alas, my internship ended and I was never again to eat the beautiful ciabatta.

    And yet, a Jack in the Box version? No thanks.

  4. Anything that sounds Italian is at least halfway decent … ESPECIALLY if it comes from “Jack in the Box”.

  5. Aymie’s Mom – If only I were a magician, the would fit. But I’m not… 🙁

    mel – I believe you can correct that by giving your kid a really cool nickname. Preferrably a nickname that invokes fear into all the other children.

    Julie – Don’t have a Jack in the Box? I smell franchise opportunity here.

    Kristin – You could always bake your own…Or have an old Italian illegal immigrant bake it for you.

    Jamie – But what if it came from a McDonald’s?

  6. Sadly, it looks like something I would like. But I won’t go to JITB anymore because they stopped selling onion rings. Yes, I’m immature that way…

  7. Marvo….

    You somehow take my boring day and make it better with each review. You make me smile, chuckle and sometimes laugh out loud as I sit alone in my little cubicle. Trust me…that’s MAGIC!

    Keep it up sweets….I’m your #1 fan! (wow..that’s scary, huh?) lol

  8. Thumper – I think you have to find another Jack in the Box, because they still sell them at the one I go to.

    sapere aude – Thank you.

    Aymie’s Mom – Awww, you’re making me blush. Or is that the alcohol? Anyway, so are you also the President of my Fan Club? Wait, I don’t have a fan club.

  9. Oh my goodness… I love this sandwich! Ok, I cheated and had regular mayo on it though. Low fat mayo probably sux. I can’t remember if it had onions.
    But, I think the chicken is so soft and the bread is good… reminds me of Scholotzsky’s bread..well, kinda. I was surprised at the size.. it looks really tiny on the tv. The only down side for me.. was that the chicken slides around a bit so it can get messy. But, seriously it’s worth a try if you like grilled chicken breast on bread that’s different.

  10. Jen – I can get regular mayo! I probably would’ve jacked up my rating a whole point if it had real mayo.

    Webmiztris – You know, it does look good, or my Photoshop skills are excellent.

  11. I had the Bruschetta Ciabbatta and it was quite tasty. I think the smashed up tomatoes really added something, along with the cheese.

  12. Tamara – Yeah, i wanted to try the Bruschetta Ciabatta, but I didn’t want to pay 50 cents more for it. I’m such a cheap bastard.
