GIVEAWAY: A Manly $130 Worth of Food from Jack in the Box and Del Taco


I eat the fast food and report back – you reap the rewards. In a giveaway you can really use in these tough economic times, I am offering $80 in Jack in the Box gift cards and $50 in Del Taco. All to one lucky individual.

Quesadillas. Jalapeno poppers. Cheeseburgers. Teriyaki bowls. Cheesecake. All within your grasp, many times over.

In case you’re wondering, Jack in the Box has locations in Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Louisiana, Missouri, Nevada, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Utah and Washington.

Del Taco has locations in California, Oregon, Washington, Michigan, Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Alabama, Utah, Texas, Florida and several U.S, military bases both national and global.

To win this, all you have to do is play fantasy fast food chef. First, make sure you have a registered commenter account with a valid email address (it’s free and I don’t spam you. Ask anyone.)

Second: in comments below, pitch me the ultimate fast food item you would create if you had unlimited resources and could magically make it non-damaging to my waistline in any way; and tell me which chain would carry it. The one that sounds the best to me is the one I will select as the winner. Feel free to elaborate with more than just a bare-bones ingredients description. The contest is open to anyone, but probably best for someone who lives near a Del Taco and Jack in the Box. Enter as often as you wish.

Get your circulatory systems ready, because someone’s bringing home awesome grease! But unlike drive-throughs, this contest won’t stay open 24-7 forever; make sure your entry is in by noon on Friday, Nov. 22nd, 2013.
