I got embarrassingly excited when I saw the commercial for Jack in the Box’s new waffle sandwich. Like, to the extent that I immediately felt shame for it. You know that amped up feeling you get when you see a trailer for a movie that looks like it’s going to be really awesome? It was that sort of feeling. “Oh fuck! A waffle sandwich?? Fuck yes!” Then shame. Then laughter at my stupidity.
Now, if you don’t know, I’m a HUGE fan of the McGriddle. It is one of my favorite things in the world. I don’t care what health nuts, or vegans, or food snobs have to say about it, that thing for me is pure happiness. I remember the first time I tried a McGriddle I was walking down the street and I took a bite and I just stopped in my tracks. I’m not going to say it was one of the happiest moments of my life, but… the happiest moments of my life I guess have to do with concerts, sex, spending time with family and friends, etc… but eating that McGriddle was at least one of the happiest food related moments of my life.
With my intense love for that sweet and savory breakfast sandwich it was exciting news to me to see that Jack in the Box was introducing a competing breakfast sandwich. What if it’s just as good I thought… OR BETTER? *gasp* And what makes it even more exciting is that Jack in the Box serves breakfast ALL DAY. The McGriddle can be elusive since they stop serving it past 11 (which is kind of a blessing since I would probably kill myself eating them if they were served all day). This new sandwich though I could get any time I want (again, might be dangerous for my health to have this option). Today I got the chance to taste this sandwich! And… it was aight.
That was kinda anticlimactic wasn’t it? Oh well.
