Yup, we have exclusive stuff like this here in Hawaii, because we love our Spam. But it’s not the first Spam sandwich Jack in the Box has offered in Hawaii.
The burger appears to consist of a small beef patty, a slice of Spam, lettuce, tomato, pickles, onions, and teriyaki sauce on a regular bun. I don’t think it’s a regular menu item, because over the past few years Hawaii Jack in the Box locations have offered a Spam-less Teri Jr. Jack, but only for a limited time. (Photo taken by Marvo.)
Jack in the Box is testing a new line of burgers with a new 1/4 lb signature beef patty, a new toasted gourmet signature bun, and “crispy melted cheese,” which appears to be a breaded gooey cheese patty. According to one of the folks who sent us photos, the new line is meant to replace Jack’s Sirloin burgers. The Big Cheesy Burgers are available in two varieties: Original and Bacon.
The Big Cheesy Burgers were spotted at locations in Fresno and Visalia, California.
If you’ve spotted them at other locations, let us know in the comments. Or, if you’re tried them, share your thoughts in the comments.
Jack in the Box has bigger breakfast burritos to begin your bay….I mean, day. (Or whenever you like since Jack in the Box offers their breakfast all day.)
The Grande Sausage Breakfast Burrito is stuffed with eggs, cheddar and pepper jack cheeses, sausage, hash browns, bacon, and Jack’s new creamy sriracha sauce. The Meat Lovers Breakfast Burrito comes with eggs, cheddar and pepper jack cheeses, sausage, ham, and bacon. Both use a large Guerrero Tortilla, come with a side of fire-roasted salsa, and are wrapped in foil. Oooh, foil! Fancy!
The Grande Sausage Burrito has 1044 calories, 70 grams of fat, 20 grams of saturated fat, 1 gram of trans fat, 391 milligrams of cholesterol, 2131 milligrams of sodium, 68 grams of carbohydrates, 5 grams of fiber, and 36 grams of protein. Surprisingly, the Meat Lovers Burritos is slightly healthier than the Grande Sausage. (It must be the ham.) It has 790 calories, 50 grams of fat, 21 grams of saturated fat, 1 gram of trans fat, 411 milligrams of cholesterol, 1706 milligrams of sodium, 50 grams of carbohydrates, 3 grams of fiber, and 39 grams of protein.
Did you know August is National Coffee Month? I didn’t because I thought it was September since National Coffee Day is on September 29th.
Well, if you want to celebrate coffee this month, you could drink coffee. Or, for a limited time, you could eat Dunkin’ Donuts’ new Glazed Coffee Creme Donut or Coffee, Creme & Sugar Donut.
Both feature a glazed yeast shell and are stuffed with a buttercreme made with Dunkin’ Donuts’ Original Blend Coffee. But the Glazed Coffee Creme Donut is drizzled with a chocolate icing, while the Coffee, Creme & Sugar Donut is topped with powdered sugar.
A Glazed Coffee Creme Donut has 360 calories, 19 grams of fat, 8 grams of saturated fat, 360 milligrams of sodium, 44 grams of carbohydrates, 25 grams of sugar, and 3 grams of protein. A Coffee, Creme & Sugar Donut has 330 calories, 19 grams of fat, 8 grams of saturated fat, 350 milligrams of sodium, 35 grams of carbohydrates, 16 grams of sugar, and 3 grams of protein.
Remember Villa Fresh Italian Kitchen’s Dub the Dew from 2012? I don’t either. Anyhoo, it seems these new supercharged beverages are just regular Mountain Dew with pomegranate or green apple syrup added. I didn’t know Mountain Dew pairs well with Italian food. I guess I learned something new today.
Dairy Queen’s Blizzard of the Month for August 2014 is the new Chips Ahoy! Blizzard (although DQ started selling them on July 28th). It features Chips Ahoy cookie chunks, a chocolaty topping, and choco chunks blended with vanilla soft serve.
A small serving has 740 calories, 28 grams of fat, 17 grams of saturated fat, 1.5 grams of trans fat, 82 grams of sugar, and 14 grams of protein.
