FAST FOOD NEWS: IHOP Criss-Croissants

IHOP Criss Croissants

IHOP could’ve been like other chains and come out with their own donut-croissant hybrid. But, apparently, IHOP also stands for I Have Other Plans. Instead of a donut-croissant hybrid, IHOP has created a waffle-croissant hybrid — the Criss-Croissants.

They feature croissant dough baked in a waffle iron, then they’re filled with a sweet cream, folded over, and topped with fruit. Criss-Croissants are available in two varieties. Blackberry Lemonade features a waffled croissant filled with lemonade cream and topped with blackberries. Strawberry Rhubarb is a waffled croissant filled with sweet cream cheese and covered with a strawberry rhubarb topping.

Criss-Croissants are available as part of a breakfast combo at participating IHOP restaurants until April 5.

An egg combo with a Blackberry Lemonade Criss-Croissant has 1060 calories, 55 grams of fat, 19 grams of saturated fat, 0 grams of trans fat, 650 milligrams of cholesterol, 1110 milligrams of sodium, 111 grams of carbohydrates, 7 grams of fiber, 45 grams of sugar, and 31 grams of protein.

An egg combo with a Strawberry Rhubarb has 1070 calories, 67 grams of fat, 26 grams of saturated fat, 0 grams of trans fat, 685 milligrams of cholesterol, 1210 milligrams of sodium, 86 grams of carbohydrates, 6 grams of fiber, 27 grams of sugar, and 30 grams of protein.

Jack in the Box Buttery Jack

Update: We reviewed them. Click here to read our Jack in the Box Buttery Jack review.

Jack in the Box’s latest burger is the Buttery Jack, which also sounds like a playground torture technique or a drink that will get you messed up super quick.

It comes in two varieties — Classic and Bacon & Swiss.

Both feature a new signature 1/4 lb beef patty topped with melted garlic herb butter in a new toasted gourmet bun. The Classic is also topped with provolone cheese, a creamy tomato sauce, green leaf lettuce, and tomato slices. The Bacon & Swiss also has strips of hickory-smoked bacon, Swiss cheese, and a creamy bacon mayo.

The Classic Buttery Jack has 816 calories, 52 grams of fat, 23 grams of saturated fat, 2 grams of trans fat, 128 milligrams of cholesterol, 1148 milligrams of sodium, and 37 grams of protein. The Bacon & Swiss has 887 calories, 59 grams of fat, 25 grams of saturated fat, 2 grams of trans fat, 1346 milligrams of sodium, and 42 grams of protein.
