Jack in the Box’s waffle sandwich sounds like something that was created to test my dietary will. Would I eat a waffle sandwich? Of course I would. Don’t be silly. The question remains: Should I eat a waffle sandwich? Probably not. That’s because I couldn’t stop at just one; my will power obliterated, I would order as many as my poor little stomach could hold. Then regret would kick in, and there’s really nothing sadder than a grown man crying over the crumbs of his delicious Jack in the Box waffle sandwich. It’s a pretty sad sight.
For those of you who actually have a Jack in the Box in your state — Kentucky, by the way, does not have any locations to speak of — the aforementioned culinary delight is now available, though it will only be on the restaurant’s menu for a limited time. Kind of like the McRib, except less visually revolting. It’s worth noting, however, that the item is not available in Indianapolis, Oklahoma City, Kansas City, Sacramento, San Antonio, Baton Rouge, and Greenville.
Tracy Dunn, director of menu marketing and promotions, said in a statement, “Jack in the Box is combining three popular breakfast choices—waffles, egg and our new country-grilled sausage—to create a distinctive, craveable sandwich that is easy to eat on the go. Our new Breakfast Waffle Sandwich is the perfect balance of sweet and savory.”
