Jack in the Box Chicken Nuggets
I like the hamburgers at Jack in the Box so much that they are just about the only thing I ever order there. Occasionally, Iíll get a couple of tacos or a chicken sandwich. Recently, I broke tradition and ordered some Chicken Nuggets. Wow, are they delicious. How come I didn't know about them? Honestly, I donít recall a fast food chicken nugget that even comes close. Sure, McNuggets are iconic and are pretty tasty. But, Jack in the Boxís Chicken Nuggets are on a whole different level. I was impressed by the quality of the white meat chicken inside the nuggets. It was juicy and delicious. Even better, however, was the crispy outer coating. Itís a bread crumb-type coating that is nicely seasoned with herbs that you could see and taste. The herb seasoning really differentiates these nuggets from those of the competition. If you think that chicken nuggets are just for kids, or if you think your fast food palate is too sophisticated for chicken nuggets, I encourage you to get yourself some of Jack in the Boxís Chicken Nuggets to see what you are missing. If you already like chicken nuggets but havenít yet ordered them at Jack in the Box Ö what are you waiting for?!

mrs. ghostmarine and i stopped into our jack in the box not long ago, and sampled the new chicken nuggets. while she thought that the nuggets were tasty and delicious, i was not impressed.
she found the chicken to be moist,tender, breadded just right, i bit into nothing but hot vegetable oil, sloppy breadding, and nothing that my taste buds said was chicken.
cost wise, the price was okay, but i'll still take mickey d's mcnuggets, or any othe restaurant chain's nuggets, any day in the week.
so a split decision was had:
mrs. ghostmarine; :)
ghost marine; :(
and as always:
I read in the blog review that these nuggets are a "whole different level". I agree. However, it is 'BASEMENT' level that comes to mind.
For five bucks would you not expect a specific nugget container (i.e. Sirloin Burger Shell) high lighting the nuggets?
I am willing to spend more on my meal for top floor, er... Penthouse Level with a view, quick service meals.
It starts with simple changes.
Bring back the BLUE drink straw. The WHITE carry out bags. Jack In The Box branded (salt, pepper & sugar) condiments. Better gauge meal napkin.
Salad Containers with the Jack Logo, again.
And OH! Hire employees Jack to make the tacos in house again like before.
These are downgrades that I noticed in time and to do away with that should be alarming to loyal guests too. Open your eyes and see what is missing with Jack. Not to mention The Jumbo Jack Not So Anymore. Even the tacos seem to have shrunk. What an insult.
If I see just these few, wouldn't it be likely that also taste and presentation would be compromised? And, I dare subtract quality also.
I think this every time I pass a Jack In The Box.
For those of us who are BLESSED to remember Jack Greeting all at the loud speaker when ordering your Bonus or Moby Jacks with a Super Taco and CHUNKY salsa. When you got to the window, you doled out a little more for FRINGS.
DAMN! On Friday date nights you took your miss to Jack In The Box for 'Dinner In The Box', circa 1983.
This company can never rape my memories of a better experience to the check averages of inferior quality and tastes of today.
