Cheap Eats at Bloglander

11/16/10 | JITB 2 Free Tacos

[ Currently Eating: Quixotic Quinoa ]

As a measure of how out of touch this blog is, I didn’t even know about the Jack in the Box two free tacos until just a few days ago. And I had to find out about it the same way that a normal shmuck would – through one of their TV commercials.

After 2:00 pm today, on Tuesday November 16, 2010 you can get two free tacos at Jack in the Box.

Back in “The Day” (bloggin circa 2005), fast food companies like Jack in the Box were beating a path to my email inbox. They would’ve probably sent me a notice about the free tacos 2 months ago. It was all I could do to keep up with the amount of submissions, press, free food and beg letters coming in.

I am SO glad that’s over with.

Even spammers have left, seeking fresh blogging morsels elsewhere. I only got 28 fake comments last week, all saying “nice job, how come your blog doesn’t work on the new google browser.”

Though I found out about it awhile ago, I just decided to post it the DAY of, like 20 minutes before it’s about to go into effect. Because, I like to procrastinate. And you probably shouldn’t be eating too many JITB tacos. I’ve sworn off them myself.

But once every 3 months or so, in a moment of great hangry weakness, I will schlep my way through the drive through and stun my stomach with Grade QuestionMark ground beef mishmash ladled into oil-drenched corn shells, sprinkled with warm shreds of lettuce.

I just can’t help myself.

    Blech, do they still deep fry the tacos in trans fat goop?

    What, no review?! Well, I did dutifully get my two free tacos, along with a $1 chicken sandwich (because, hey, I’M not even a big enough schmuch just to go get the free stuff.) They claim the tacos have been tweaked, but they tasted the same to me EXCEPT for the fact that I didn’t get that half-slice of american cheese! Funny thing is, I didn’t even notice it (probably owing to the fact that some of Milwalkee’s Best seemed like the best compliment for the meal). The chicken sandwich was actually quite tasty, even for ‘fake’ chicken. I like the fact that Jack uses leaf lettuce instead of shreads (that’s my big complaint about Rally’s (a.k.a. Checker’s)) (and yes, I like parentheses)

    some of the worse things i have ever eaten

    definitely the food for teenagers coming down from a pot high

    these are the “Taco Bell” of the otherwise great quality JitB food menu.

    Hey, I initially found you (somehow) when I was looking for a recipe with soba noodles. I think.
    Anyway, I meant to comment on the previous post but the comment box wasn’t loading. I was going to say that is great for helping you determine whether a food is still edible after x amount of time. I have turned to it in moments of “WTF is this doing in my freezer and can I still eat it?”

    I like your blog, however rarely updated. I appreciate the super cheap eats theme you’ve got. And thanks for the soba recipe!
