As soon as January 2 rolls around, everyone starts thinking about dieting, exercising, and eating healthy.
This time Jack in the Box restaurants will help you get into your skinny jeans with two new menu options debuting January 3.
They are grilled chicken strips with teriyaki dipping sauce and a chicken fajita pita sandwich featuring a pita made with low-glycemic whole grain (hooray).
In addition to the new menu items, Jack in the Box is also introducing its new “Smart Choice” logo, which was created to help direct guests to its lighter menu options.
Jack’s new grilled chicken strips features a serving of four, white-meat chicken strips served with teriyaki dipping sauce on the side have 190 calories without the sauce and 260 calories with one serving of sauce for $3.99Â
Chicken fajita pita has been a staple on Jack’s menu for 20 years, now gets a nutritional boost with the addition of a pita made with whole grain for $3.60. The pita sandwich, which has 300 calories, contains 16 grams of whole grain per serving. Nice.
Why the changes? Consumers are more knowledgeable about nutrition and many are looking for lighter menu items.
