Nothing like having a fire engine horn blasting through your tv, then eating a crappy chicken sandwich that your colon will be thanking you for 12 hours later. I like hot sauce, but I don't want it to overwhelm the food I am eating!

Some people like it that hot, I guess.  Hot for the sake of hot.  I dunno why.  If a topping is "blazing hot", it kills the flavor of the food it tops, especially chicken, which has a mild flavor to begin with.

I think some people like all that hot stuff just to show they can handle it.

What's with the fast food places jumping on the ghost pepper bandwagon? First Popeye's, then Wendy's, now Jack In The Box!

It's "hip," like sriracha (or however you spell it.) If they thought there was a market for it in their target audience, they'd be advertising / selling kale chips and quinoa.

They kinda hinted at why people eat there some years back when they were running all their stoner commercials (which I thought were pretty funny).

Back in my University daze, my sister called them "Jack in the Crack"...this was back in 1977, so I am dating myself, but back then they still had the Bonus Jack, and there was a JiTB just two blocks away from the frat house crash pad.

Many a night I would curl up in bed with two Bonus Jacks, some onion rings, and a root beer, after a long day of getting the munchies from all that "studying" LoL good times. I still can't resist a deep-fried Super Taco every now and then, so greasily decadent!

In high school, my "reward" every Friday for being IN the marching band was a Bonus Jack or two, munched down just prior to heading out to the Friday night football game to toot my piccolo. Many fond memories of JiTB here, so I have a fondness for their commercials.

Pro-tip: you can still ask for Jack's "Secret Sauce", they'll give it to you in the little ketchup-like packets...squirt that on your cheeseburger, and its like a trip back to the Seventies! Except that now, my metabolism is so low compared to then, I put on two pounds just thinking about it!

Jack sure knows how to pull on the nostalgia strings, that's for sure.

[edit: being IN the marching band, although now I could probably BE the marching band, so huge now LoL]

I used to know a comedian (Kevin Meaney) who used to do a bit about the secret "Jack" sauce.

I'm with the OP; I like hot sauce and spicy food too, but if all I get is "heat" then it's not worth it. I want some real flavor in there.

Somewhere in my room there's a Jack In The Box sign that goes with the Jack In The Box Micro Machines play set. It dates back to the 90s so its before the logo redo. I bet I can by it on eBay for hefty price!

By the way I'm nostolgic for the old logo it was clean and simple the new ones way too complicated, I'm not a fan of highly differing fonts. Keep it simple stupid.

OK I like the "Jack" part its got that 60s flair. The "in the box" part is way too late 90s techie to fit. Frankly? I wish they'd dump it! Change the font so its more cohesive! It looks like two different ideas at once!

Jack in the Box started out being a real Jack in the Box.  It's a children's toy where you crank the handle on the box and then out pops the Jack, which looked like a joker or jester clown.  When they started the drive-thrus, you put your order in at the talking clown box.  In 1980 JITB had an ad campaign where they blew up the clown, which was controversial at the time for being too violent and scaring little children.  That's where the 'in the box' came from.  Nothing techie about it.  Wink

I can't stand this ad either. Seriously, a blasting fire engine horn? Imagine if this aired on the radio...how many cars would pull over for no reason! Loud commercials may be banned, but advertisers are trying every way they can to keep those loud sound effects going. UGH!

I love the way all these fast food joints talk about their Ghost Pepper stuff. Hve any of you ever actually ate a ghost pepper? Let me tell you, if the public were exposed to it there would be law suits all over the place. Their ghost pepper is like the equivalent of putting a drop of seawater in a gallon of tap water and calling it sea water. 

I do not think much, I do not think often, but when I do think, I think about sex!!

Beats? Oh puleeze. That's cheating. Everyone wears those like everyone wears Nike. 

How about weld some of these ugly white Califone educational headphones to their ears? Most people will find wearing these torture.

(no offense...I practically grew up with these headphones at the listening center while reading to a book on tape in school. ;) )

[edit: being IN the marching band, although now I could probably BE the marching band, so huge now LoL]

My first job was at JITB (we called it "Jack") in 1975-76. I wore brown polyester pants, an orange and yellow polyester uniform top, and the girls had to wear a ridiculous little white paper hat pinned to our heads (management called them "tiaras"!)

As I recall, the only "bonus" to the Bonus Jack was an extra piece of hamburger bun between the two meat patties. And Secret Sauce! It was kind of like thousand island salad dressing. I didn't know they still had it -- I haven't eaten any in nearly forty years. No ghost pepper sauce or anything like that. Just good old basic junk food.

My favorite job was working the fryers: Fries, onion rings, tacos, and two kinds of fried pies -- apple and lemon. The lemon pies were fantastic. In those days we melted huge blocks of lard in the fryers; no vegetable oils for Jack!

I didn't particularly like working the window, but my manager always wanted a female up there. At 2 a.m. there was lots of dope smoke wafting out of cars, people spiking their sodas with booze, and once a guy drove through with his pants down, spanking the proverbial monkey.

Quite the education for a sheltered teenager!

Tobasco is your best bet for spicy flavor without completely burning your tongue..... There's spicy good(Tobasco) and burn your tongue bad(Hannah's Red Hot TNT Pickled Sausage) I made the stupid, naive mistake of assuming that Hannah's Red Hot TNT Pickled Sausage was like mild pickled sausage with a dash of Tobasco. I took a bite out of it, and was metaphorically praying to the cherry mango cold slushee God for mercy. That sh*t hurt my tongue!

Tabasco is tame. Sadly, it doesn't have a good flavor either, which renders it totally worthless to me.

Also, anyone who thinks JitB, Wendys, and Popeyes are using anything with serious heat in their food is deranged. Their "ghost pepper" sauce(okay, can't speak for Popeyes since their promotion lasted like 2 weeks and I never had a chance to try it) isn't as hot as the habanero sauce I buy here all the time, and habaneros are much lower on the heat scale than ghost peppers. I've had jerky made with habaneros, ghost peppers, Trinidad scorpion, Carolina reaper, and a whole bunch of peppers in between those levels, and all of them were delicious(and tasted noticeably different), though a couple of the Carolina reaper varieties had the heat overwhelm the taste and so weren't really ideal for me. I like super hot, but I like super hot where I can taste the flavors of what I'm eating too, and only the Reaper(and only certain flavors) overwhelmed the taste. If you check thejerkyconnection.com I've had almost every variety on their "spicy" and "insane categories"(including a few limited runs that are no longer available) and in almost all of them, I had no trouble tasting the meat or the seasonings, even with the intense heat of the ghost pepper or others.

Unfortunately, it's people who think that stuff like jalapenos and tabasco sauce are "hot" that are the main reason we pretty much never get any food with REAL heat at fast food places. Some wing places make an okay effort(not ghost pepper or trinidad scorpion level heat, but at least a little bit of a burn) but that's about the best you can do.

Habaneros are hot enough for me.  Anything more and I get no flavors, just head sweating and burning.

Once a friend in work brought in some fresh habaneros and I took some home.  I cut them in half to clean out the seeds and put them in the freezer.  Then I went to take a pee... big mistake!!  Ouch Ouch Cry

Habaneros are about the first pepper on the scale that I consider legitimately hot when used in cooking, and I won't consider anyone a wuss for considering them too much to handle. They have a good flavor to boot, which makes them one of my favorite peppers, I almost always have a thing of habanero sauce around here to eat with various hot links and similar meat links. I do still get flavors with hotter peppers(along with the head sweating and burning), at least until the Carolina Reaper is involved, then it becomes iffy.

And oh yeah, anytime I've handled anything with habaneros, ghost peppers, etc, I make extra sure my hands have been thoroughly washed before they come anywhere near my eyes or any other sensitive area.

^^ Yeah I've gotten cayenne in my eyes before which wasn't pleasant, and the cayenne I believe is way down on the Scoville scale compared to the habanero.    I can't even fathom how bad that crap would burn in the eyes.
