JACK IN THE BOX JUMBO BREAKFAST PLATTER
Sometimes in the morning you want a really big breakfast and sometimes you want that big breakfast to be from a fast food chain. Well today we are looking at exactly that.
We have spoken about Jack in the Box a few times on this website but if you don’t remember then, let us just remind you who they are.
Jack In The Box is an American fast-food restaurants that was the founded in 1951. The headquarters is in California and it has over 2,000 locations including New Mexico, San Diego, Colorado and Florida
One of the items that they have on their breakfast menu is the Jumbo Breakfast Platter. Does that sound big enough for you? Well, if it does, let’s look into what it actually is.
The first thing to be made aware about this breakfast is that in the advertising of it it really promotes the fact it is served as a jumbo platter and when you see what’s inside it’s not hard to see why.
If you purchase one of these Jumbo Breakfast Platters, you will get scrambled eggs, hash browns, eight mini pancakes and choice of country grilled sausage or 3 slices of bacon.
Now depending on which version you get depends on how fattening this is. If you had the breakfast with sausage. then it is 621 calories, if you got the breakfast with the bacon, it is 540 calories. To buy the Jumbo Breakfast Platter it costs two $2.99.
There are varied reviews online about the Breakfast Platter, one of the ones that I came across said that the breakfast was pretty boring and that the pancakes tasted rubbery and the hash browns were not crispy. Another reviewer loved the breakfast because they could use the mini pancakes as bums and make little sandwiches out of the rest of the contents.
Apparently the jumbo Breakfast Platter is only around for a limited amount of time.
