Exploding Cheesy Chicken Sandwich from Jack In The Box, a worthy follow-up to their infamous tastes-like-cigarette-smoke Bacon Shake

Chris Horner, the winner of the 2013 Veulta (Tour of Spain) race at almost 42 years old, has long been known for his preference of snickers, In N Out burgers, pizza and fries over anything healthy. So when I saw the opportunity to try Jack In The Box’s new “Exploding Cheesy Chicken” sandwich, how could I refuse?

I should have refused.

That “thing” was ghastly. Gross. Disgusting. A piece of chicken in there somewhere, supposedly with two fried mozarella sticks on top of it (which had a taste and texture like no mozarella I’ve ever experienced; they looked so suspicious that I tried just a nibble and quickly removed them), smothered in something that appeared and tasted like a mayonaise/cheese combination (equally gross!). I have no idea what the green flecks were. Scraped everything off and ate just the chicken. I figured the chicken would have been fried enough to have a nearly-impermeable coating of crusty grease that would keep anything else away, but sadly no. This “thing” was the personification of a nightmare Gordon Ramsey might have if he were to be on his feet for 5 days straight on crack. I won’t debate evidence that that’s not a hypothetical scenario.

Why offer something like this? Simple. Because you can’t make this stuff up. Nobody would believe it. Like the Bacon Shake. It’s a culinary joke, with Jack daring you to come along for the ride. I can only wonder what they might come up with next. Perhaps the RKB, which stands for something super-secret but they let slip out through an unauthorized tweet that maybe it stands for Road Kill Burger. And it just might be. No shortage of possums around.
