News: Jack in the Box - $2.99 Fish Sandwich Combo Meal

For a limited-time, Jack in the Box has brought back their $2.99 Fish Sandwich Combo as well as their Fish & Chips.

Last seen around this time last year, the Fish Sandwich Combo features Jack's Fish Sandwich, a small order of fries, and small fountain drink.

The Fish Sandwich consists of two lightly battered fillets of Alaskan Pollock, lettuce, and tartar sauce on a warm sesame seed bun.

Fish & Chips comes with three fish fillets, a small order of fries, and a side of tartar sauce and malt vinegar for $4.59.

  1. how can the addition of fries only add 20 calories and actually decrease the amount of fat? Is the Sandwich in the combo meal different? 

  2. Lint. All the fish deals always come around this time of the year.

  3. Hm. I found some updated nutritional information for this year. It's a little different but doesn't make your question any less valid. I think it's the bun for the sandwich versus an extra filled plus fries.

  4. I wonder if calorie content could be reduced if baked non-breaded fish (sea kitten?) could be used within a sandwich?

    Doing so could be used to assist in marketing efforts.

    One drawback would be the need to use fish without the visible flaws such as dark spots, streaks, whatever often seen in fish.

    Just an idea but what with the ongoing efforts to compete in what seems to be the fast-food wars/competition with so MANY new offerings, altered offerings of the basically same offerings of old and a bunch of etceteras efforts to reach out to those seeking reduced calories, carbohydrates, etc. that truly new concepts regarding fast-food fare would be used.

    And I await the firm that reverts back to the very basic menu of old with low price and quality reign supreme.
