Jack in the Box has unhealthiest dollar menu food

It may seem like a steal at $1. But Jack in the Box’s junior bacon cheeseburger has been ranked the unhealthiest “value menu” item offered by a fast food chain, according to the Cancer Project.

Dieticians from the non-profit food watchdog group examined value menu fare from five fast food chains and found that many of these items are loaded with saturated fat, sodium and other ingredients that can increase the risk of heart disease and diabetes. They also contain grilled or processed meats, which have been linked to cancer.

“With the economy right now, everyone is looking to save a penny here or there,” said Krista Haynes, a Cancer Project dietician involved in the study. But “these low-cost items can be costly to your health,” Haynes said.

Mmm… Jack in the Box food.

Seems the sandwich has 400 calories, 23 grams of fat and 1 gram of fiber.

I’m just going to go back to eating my Jack in the Box grub. :iagree:

Hey, you can’t beat that calorie per dollar value! Every cloud has a silver lining.

That may be the way liberals sing it but us conservatives sing the Metallica version while holding a beer and watching a naked girl twirl around a pole in a strip club. :wink:

I’m not a Metallica fan either but you need that little extra boost of testosterone to counter balance the male bodies urge to produce estrogen when singing that particular song in its original melody. Maybe we can substitute the Nirvana version if that suits you better. The beer and stripper, on their own, can only do so much.

As long as it is before we sing. Then the song will make me feel better afterward. Kind of like a Catholic going to confession. If it helps you get through it, we can make them wear a Bush mask. Heck, I work in the land development industry so maybe you can just kick me.

The only Bush I’m interested in is the one twirling around the pole in the strip club. :wink:

This is the first speck of compassion I have ever received as a land developer.
