Review: Jack in the Box: Supreme Croissant

The other half of Jack in the Box's 2 for $3 Breakfast Croissants, the Supreme Croissant features a fried egg, Jack's new hickory-smoked bacon, ham, and American cheese on a buttery croissant. What makes it "supreme" you ask? It's that thin slice of ham, because otherwise it would just be the "Bacon Croissant" or the "Bacon, Egg & Cheese Croissant." See how much difference a slice of ham makes? The normal price for a Supreme Croissant is $2.19.

Let start off with the new hickory-smoked bacon. While it felt more like normal bacon and less like super-thin fast food bacon, there was  no discernable hickory smokiness to it. Still, bacon is yummy and it was fried to a decent crispness.
The ham was a single slice of deli-thin ham and I was pretty indifferent about it. I liked the fried egg with its crisp edges and the buttery, soft croissant though.
Most sandwich shops already charge to upgrade to a croissant, so it's nice when you can get one on the cheap at a fast food restaurant such as Jack in the Box, especially at all odd hours. It'd probably be extra good if you toast it before you eat the sandwich. I wish I had thought of that earlier when I was eating the sandwich rather than now as I write about it...

Of the Jack in the Box breakfast offerings I've tried so far, I have to say I like the Supreme Croissant the best.

  1. As long as the local Ronald McDonald hang-out has those to-me super yummylicious one-buck sausage biscuits with the tasty non-hard biscuits I will remain within my stuck-in-a-rut schemata of grabbing that critter.

    However, as with the horde of other reviews of various edibles from a herd of sources, your review is eminently "edible."
