LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jack in the Box and Chain, the Los Angeles based dining phenomenon, have joined forces to create “Munchie Sauce”. The tantalizing new sauce was specifically developed by Michelin-starred chef Tim Hollingsworth to pair with all items across the Jack in the Box menu.
“What makes Jack so iconic to me is their deliciously disparate menu – where else can you get a burger, tiny tacos, an eggroll, and a side of curly fries?” noted Chef Hollingsworth, “It’s a menu unlike anywhere else, so I created a sauce that’s unlike anything but that goes with everything.”
To mark the launch of Munchie Sauce, Jack in the Box and Chain will host a series of dinner events featuring Chain’s Original ‘Crunchie Meal’: Chain’s chef-driven homage to Jack’s Munchie Meal, with items including:
- Crunchie Cluck Sourdough Deluxe
- Jumbo Sized Tiny Tacos
- Saucy Curlies
- Cocktail pairings
“We often see our fans create awesome menu hacks of their own, and the opportunity for us to work with Chain to transform Jack in the Box’s already expansive menu and beloved sauces into something totally new is the true, innovative spirit of the brand,” says Ryan Ostrom, Jack in the Box’s Chief Marketing Officer.
To commemorate this monumental moment in culinary history, limited-edition Jack x Chain ‘I Got Sauced At Chain’ apparel will be available, featuring Jack with Munchie Sauce.
