Terrible Taco Teaser

Whose tacos are worse, Jack In The Box’s hope-there’s-no-one-blocking-the-crapper gut bombs, or the new-kid-on-the-block tacos from Burger King?

But first, can you guess which is which?

(Trust me. Neither vendor’s product comes across the counter like these!)

In my personal review, I’ll say that the tooth-busting, Bakelite-plastic shells of both are darn close and, even though the added spices might be a little different, the oil ladled into both has almost the same taste, and an identical dribble.

And checking the stats on their websites, the calories, cholesterol, sodium, carbs, and protein are neck and neck with each other, and probably also eyeball to eyeball and tendon to tendon.

The only distinguishing characteristic to my tongue are the spices which, in spite of their differences, are equally revolting.

Looking at the pictures and the stats above, did you guess correctly?

The single taco and horizontal nutrition information with yellow headings are from Burger King’s website whereas the two-taco special (picture) and white-on-red nutrition table is from Jack’s.

So, who is the winner?

Not my gut, that’s for sure.
