That being said, Jack in the Box's tacos are comfort food for me. I know what I'm getting. I know what they'll taste like, and I know they are cheap.
I realize that the term tacos is being used loosely here. There arent many tacos that are:
a) deep fried to a "crispy on the edges--mushy in the center" texture.
b) use an un-melted slice of Velveeta.
c) have meat that can be dispensed via a frosting tube.
Most people will claim that 2 tacos for 99 cents is 2 tacos too much. For me, It's just shy of a perfect amount, so when I saw the 3 taco combo at JITB, my stomach demanded action. This is truly a great deal. For $2.99(higher in some markets), you get the following:
--3 regular tacos
--small french fry
--1142 calories (including 48 grams of fat, 155 grams of carbs, and 9 grams of healthy fiber)
--1 large stain from taco sauce on your shirt
--1 invitation to take a 14 minute survey in which your chances to win $1000 barely exceeds 1 in 1 billion
--Potential explosive diarheaa
Let's be honest with ourselves...we are going to eat 50 fat grams anyway for lunch. We might as well do it for $2.99, and save the extra cash for a king size snickers and diet coke as an afternoon snack.
I give a hearty approval for this meal, and you should go take advantage as soon as possible as it is a limited time offer.
I would give this deal a 5 star rating, but "Jack" is too creepy of a company mascot to be pot-committed with JITB. He ranks slightly lower than the (retired?) Burger King "King" in creepiness.
In addition, JITB uses the term "menage a tacos" when referring to this deal. Let's just say that the double entendre is in full force here, and I have't used the term meaty taco with that connotation since high school.
