As more and more places attempt to provide customers with cost-effective options, Jack in The Box is the latest to join the mix. Starting today, a brand new Munchies Menu will permanently join the other regular menu items.

The nice thing about this Munchies Menu is that each of the items found on it will be $4 or less. Per PR provided by Guilty Eats from Jack in the Box, here's the full list of items on the new Munchies Menu:

  • Jr. Jumbo Jack
  • Tiny Tacos
  • Chicken Nuggets
  • French Toast Sticks
  • Jr. Chicken Sandwich
  • Jr. Cheeseburger
  • NEW Sourdough Grilled Cheese
  • Two Tacos
  • Jr. Cheeseburger
  • Value Curly Fries
  • Value French Fries
  • Jr. Bacon Cheeseburger
  • And a Value Drink option!

"Jack in the Box is committed to maintaining that variety at a value that still leaves some cash in your pocket," said Ryan Ostrom, Chief Marketing Officer in a press release.

If there were more Jack in the Box franchises in my area, I would absolutely take advantage of this menu. Having the ability to mix the sweetness of French toast with a grilled cheese? Sounds like a great midnight snack. There are also enough things on the menu that you could make this a guilty pleasure a couple of times while not getting sick of it.

As for the deal itself, it proves that fast-food restaurants are in a tough spot right now, but figuring out how to deal with the money crunch. Wallets are getting thinner, prices tighter, but menus like this help lighten the load. And kudos to Jack in the Box for providing a wide variety of options, versus the requisite, limited options box other chains have been delivering.

So make that trip to your local Jack in the Box. And if it was a good day, you might want to try the Ice Cube Munchie Meal while you're there.
