Last week Subway announced that it would stop using azodicarbonamide, an ingredient known as a dough conditioner that’s also a chemical found in yoga mats, shoe rubber and other synthetic leather. It’s recognized as a safe ingredient in the U.S., but is banned in Europe and Australia as a food additive. But of course, Subway isn’t the only fast food restaurant to use it. So where else can you find azodicarbonamide? [More]
Did someone mention bacon? Oh that’s right, I did, three times in the headline. I had to, because the Jack in the Box chain has apparently left its finger on the bacon button and refused to let up. Its new “Bacon Insider” burger not only has bacon+beef patty, but layers six slices of bacon on top and adds a bacon mayo. [More]
Full disclosure: I love ranch dressing with an unholy fire summoned deep from within my Midwestern soul. I will dip pizza into ranch dressing with more enjoyment than I reserve for most special occasions. But that being said, at least I know that it’s not worth getting into fisticuffs when my ranch dressing intentions are thwarted, which can’t be said for one Jack in the Box customer. [More]
A burger with grilled cheeses for buns was once a little-known, very-unhealthy regional specialty in the South and Midwest.

Sure, McDonald’s hasn’t gone into 24-hour breakfast mode yet, but that doesn’t mean that you have to suffer without new and exciting breakfast food mashups. Jack In The Box introduced some new items this week, and among them is a breakfast sausage, ham, and bacon sandwich with waffles for buns. Waffles. For Buns. [More]
I believe that it doesn’t really matter what you do for a living, as long as it fulfills you, and you try your best to be good at it. (But then, I blog for a living, so what do I know?) Kevin had an experience at a Texas Jack in the Box that combined “Above and Beyond” customer service with unusual dedication to a company.
This last evening I was hungry and decided that I wanted Jack In the Box. So I went to the Manhattan Beach, CA store on Sepulveda Ave. When I pulled up and was beginning to determine what I wanted for dinner I noticed a sign on the order board. It stated that in order to use a credit card it required a 30 dollar purchase, ID and a signature.
