There's certain things I've had it in my head that seemed to be too authentically Mexican to ever appear on a fast food menu, chorizo being one of them. Well, Jack in the Box has proven me wrong (although I was still the only person who predicted in the mid-to-late 80's, and predicted correctly, that the Jack clown would be brought back sometime in the 90's) by introducing recently a Chorizo Sausage Burrito. I tried one a couple weeks ago and it tasted just like the chorizo burritos my dad used to make, only slightly less homier and with the addition of hashbrowns.
I have tried to get on some sort of Jack in the Box press list so they can let me know when they release a new Mexican item. So far they have ignored me, and ignored my request to interview Jack Box (all I want to do is ask when they're bringing back the Super Nachos . . . and the Chicken Monster Taco in the red corn shell . . . and the Outlaw Burger . . . and the Club Pita . . . and the Pizza Pocket . . . and the Frings . . . and why every time I ask for extra lettuce on my two tacos for 99 cents I am always given less lettuce than the normal amount), but I still get e-mails from them from time to time about promotions Jack in the Box is running. Here's the latest thing they sent me. Should be good for any avid gamers out there:
When you hear the term "rip off" it's understandable that dastardly thoughts of injustice come to mind. UNLESS the rip off is occurring at Jack in the Box restaurants. That's right ... "Jack’s Big Rip-Off" is a new peel-and-reveal game that starts Monday, August 24th at Jack in the Box. Just order a large combo and rip the game piece off the drink cup for a chance to win free food, cool gaming prizes or one of FIVE Ultimate Game Rooms. Visit http://jacksbigripoff.com for details.
