MUNCHIES: Jack In The Box Targets Potheads

Bloomberg reports:

For Jack in the Box Inc., the warm smell of marijuana is rising in the air. As California prepares for legal recreational pot on Jan. 1, the fast-food chain is partnering with a digital media company backed by rapper Snoop Dogg on a new “munchie” meal aimed at cannabis enthusiasts.

While marijuana’s connection to fast food is well-established, Jack in the Box will become the first national chain to explicitly embrace the drug.

The “Merry Munchie Meal,” which will be available at three California locations for a week in January for $4.20, features two tacos, french fries, onion rings, five mini churros, three chicken strips and a small drink. The price isn’t random: The number 420 is used as a code by potheads.

      I used to skip lunch, but I worked with a guy who went for fast food takeout every day and he’d ask if I wanted anything so I started getting something from wherever he was going. He went to JITB a lot and they fry everything! So I gained weight. About that time I went home for a visit (I also had just gotten a new buzz cut) and my mother took one look at me and said, “You look just like Little Henry!”

      Ya… well… we have the same thing. A stray we’ve named Mugsy. Really nice cat. REALLY REALLY wants to come inside (and actually snuck in once and we found it asleep on the couch).

      It eats 3x what my cat eats and claws at the window screens to demand food (it’s sitting outside right now glaring at me).

      I’d adopt it, but we already have a cat (and the two don’t get along) – plus this is an unuttered adult male and spreads its musk everywhere.

      But here’s the down side… this morning, at 2:00 AM – the claws on the window screen DEMANDING to be fed.

      No… that’s unacceptable. Sorry.

      • bkmn

        Time to fill a spray bottle for those early morning screen raids.

      • kareemachan

        So get it neutered. Once that happens, the cats should calm down.

        And I have two cats who demand things at all hours of day and night. It’s a cat’s perogative. According to cats.

    • Treant

      Cool story! I did skip the comments as I left DailyKos some time back.

      I don’t need to read how Bernie would totally adopt that cat faster and better than Hillary ever could.

      • Joe in PA

        LOL, I’d still take a Bernie Bro over those cretins on Mediaite. 🙁

      • They were many Hillary supporters over at Kos. I think the split in 2016 was about 60 Bernie / 40 Hillary. But to be honest, there is no way Hillary is running in 2020 (she said as much), everyone needs to be really nice to the ex-Hillary people to get us to vote for them (including myself) so I am willing to be pampered by those who considered me neoliberal/neoconservative/whore/DINO/whatever in the past. So start kissing my ass now if you want to win Florida in 2020 lefties!

          Effects of Catnip. Catnip can turn your usually relaxed kitty into a drooling mess according to experts. The mere scent of the perennial can have a cat running maniacally, rubbing obsessively, licking, chewing, sniffing, growling, leaping and flipping.

          • David Walker

            Patches only eats catnip. Toys with catnip? Little mousies with catnip? No interest whatsoever. I have the catnip container on a stand within her reach. Mostly, she knocks it off the stand when she wants a chew. Of course, sometimes she just knocks it down because that’s what cats do.

          • shivadog

            I give my kitties dried catnip every single day and they LOVE it. Daddy gets a doobie, kitty gets a doobie, everybody gets a doobie! Every day, OK?

      • Dayglo

        Catnip got my cats so high it was almost scary. Especially when they’d eat a lot of it in addition to rolling in it. Personally, I don’t think it’s healthy for them to imbibe on a daily basis. Make it a special occasion thing before they start listening to the Spin Doctors and playing Hacky Sack.

          • PickyPecker

            You should just go and be with him. Will make him (and you) feel better. Is good if you’re there to check on how they’re treating him (what with the long weekend looming and all) and what the plan going forward is with discharge. Especially if he’s hopped up on happy pills.

            Pick up something that will brighten his day. It’s always terrible (depressing) being in the hospital at this time of year.

          • Joe in PA

      Funny-as-hell GIF, but just as a reminder: don’t blow smoke in your pets’ faces. They might not react well to it, and it’s a dick move regardless.

      • Priya Lynn

        Years ago I blew many light puffs into my usually agressive kitty’s face. She became sooo affectionate and happy! The trick is you have to blow light little puffs so the cat doesn’t get annoyed. It took so many puffs I was a hot mess by the time the cat showed any effects.

        A friend of mine used to do this with his cat. He says the cat got to like it and would seek him out whenever it smelled the smoke from the other room.

      • Reality.Bites

        I used to have a dog who knew what he liked and what he liked was weed. And Scotch. And root beer. Even diet root beer, and he normally wouldn’t touch aspartame. Have any of those in your hand and he’d be right up next to you on the sofa, trying to get his tongue in the glass or waiting for you to exhale so he could inhale.

        Had to be really careful when smoking to keep it out of his face, contorting to blow it where he couldn’t reach.

  • kirby7771

    Wow. That sounds like a lot of calories.

  • As a woman of size, I have to say that this is definitely a step in the right direction for Jack in the Box because I think we can all appreciate food that is made more affordable. Having said that, I still will choose not to eat there and I will just never understand women who do choose to do business with a company that has overt masculine tones right in the name.

    I have yet to discover why Jack in the Box has much of a following. The only thing they have going for them is cheap. We drove thru and got a couple of breakfast sandwiches and other than the egg it seemed like everything had been printed on paper.

    • Girlgoon

      3D printed food now there’s an idea !!!

      • bkmn

        It was so bizarre since we both had the same thought at the same time. The bacon seemed like it was paper, the ham seemed like it was paper. After living most of my life in markets without Jack my first experience was not good enough to draw me back, even with coupons/incentives.

    • clay

      Like Hardee’s, they also have variety (as long as it’s a fried food) going for them. Those two can (and do) step into markets too small for others more focused on only burgers, or only “Mexican”, or only “Chinese”, or only chicken.

      • Lazycrockett

        Nothing like Checker’s fries when you are really stoned. Plus their meat is USDA graded………graded what? who knows.

      • I had never seen a Hardee’s before I moved to Atlanta (Carl’s Jr, yes, but not Hardee’s).

        Though my wife has never seen a Jack in the Box. She said once to me that she’s going to find one and go to it just to see if I’m telling the truth about it (I told her that if she does that, she’s going by herself :p ).

    • The last time I went there it was as an undergrad in College Park Maryland and that was because Jack in the Crack (the nickname as I remember) was the only place open at 3:30 a.m. when you had the munchies. I haven’t been back since.

      • Dayglo

        Eddi, there was actually a Jack in the Box in Columbia, MD where stoners would get cheap tacos in the late ‘70s. Columbia has super strict zoning laws so you couldn’t talk into a clown’s mouth!

    • the important question is what the list of approved conditions which qualify one to be an MM patient looks like. a lot of states have tried to severely limit which patients may use it legally, and ignored the mental health community all together. i am not aware of what FL’s list looks like; i hope it’s a truly inclusive one. you’ve got a lot of old folks down there who are about to discover how much money they can save by switching to MM instead of various combos of expensive drugs.

        • Mikey

          The problem is, when you meet others who were vaccinated but for whom the vaccine may not have been 100% effective, you are putting THEM at risk.
          My lovely niece nearly killed me 6 years ago. It was a year that the flu vaccine simply didn’t work. I’m obsessive about getting vaccinated because I am immunocompromised.

          But my lovely niece decided to come to family Christmas dinner know perfectly well that she was already starting to come down with something, and on top of that, insisted on kissing and hugging everyone in the family.

          long story short: I was sick for 2 and a half months, hospitalized because of secondary infections, and nearly died. I ran a 106 fever for days on end, and lost 40 lbs.

          regardless of whether you think the vaccine makes you sick for a day or two, get vaccinated, it’s not only YOUR life that’s put at risk.

          • cleos_mom

            What would be your advice to workers who have no sick leave at their jobs?

          • Mikey

            my response is “get vaccinated”.
            it’s a lot cheaper than trying to find another job.
            if you must come in to work while sick, then do what you must keep those around you safe: personal hygiene, if you can wear a mask do so, avoid very close contact with anyone you have definite knowledge might be immunocompromised or in a particularly vulnerable group, etc…

            None of this is magic. It’s common sense.

            Your comment also has nothing to do with any of this conversation.
            The issue is not and never was “I can’t take sick days”.
            The issue is “I don’t feel like getting vaccinated”.
            Vaccines come in multiple forms and formulations. If one does not suit you, then another surely will. There is no excuse for putting others at risk.

    Today’s news. Getting ready for legislation in Canada, summer 2018.

    The company that owns Cobourg’s [Ontario] former Kraft plant has signed a financing agreement with a Vancouver-based company to convert it into
    the largest indoor cannabis cultivation and processing facility in the
    world.

    https://www.northumberlandnews.com/news-story/8020670-fv-pharma-signs-financing-agreement-to-develop-world-s-largest-indoor-cannabis-facility-in-cobourg/
    It will produce 200 million grams of cannabis each year. Coburg is 70 miles east of Toronto on Lake Ontario.

    • and provide a lot of people with paying work and possibly long term jobs. i just love saying that.

      • Reality.Bites

        The provincial government, which will both sell and tax the product, will also reap substantial taxes, although they like to downplay it.

        But the expected price ($10 a gram) and other annoyances inherent with government retail will likely not drive the non-legal industry away. There’s a LOT of profit in illegal weed, and they can easily drop their prices in half.

        • Priya Lynn

          “There’s a LOT of profit in illegal weed, and they can easily drop their prices in half.”.

          I’m not so sure about that. The last time I bought weed was over ten years ago and it was $15 for a gram or 2 for $25. I think the government will be pretty competitive at 10/gram, plus who’s going to want to chase down an illegal dealer when you can find it for sure at your local pot store.

          • Reality.Bites

            I buy weed online and on sale it goes as low $7 a gram, plus there’s a huge variety of strains, and if I want to buy more than 30 grams I can.

            Although a lot of work goes in to weediculture, at it’s core the costs are no higher than growing any other plant indoors.

            Think of tobacco – another dried weed. I don’t know how much tobacco is in a package of cigarettes but way more than a gram.

            Or think of how much dried fruit like raisins you get for $10.

          • Priya Lynn

            Ummm…maybe you’re right. $7 a gram surprises me although I’d assume there’s shipping charges on top of that. That’s $7 Canadian right?

          • Priya Lynn

            Judging from the lack of a response I guess thats $7 American or just slightly under $10 Canadian. So, $10 CDN per gram will be competitive.

      Oh, shit, Michelle. I really feel badly about this, but it’s “Barack and me.” Drop the reference to “Barack” and “I” is obviously wrong. Adding him doesn’t change the case nor the pronoun. Sorry. I love you. I miss you both. It’s just, you know, for future reference.

      • Mikey

        well, at least she didn’t write “me and Barack”

        • David Walker

          For which she gets points.

      • Priya Lynn

        I was always taught by my teachers the proper usage is Barack and I.

        • David Walker

          Depends on where it appears and how you use it. “Barack and I loved your din-din,” but it’s “means so much to Barack and me.”

          • Stubenville

            I wish I had paid more attention in English class, and had better teachers.

          • Reality.Bites

            Having studied French all through elementary and high school and Spanish for two years, I can truthfully say I was taught far more extensively about grammar in those languages than in English.

            In English many of our tenses are combinations of words, rather than modifications of the verb. For example, “I should have done it yesterday” – Most English speakers aren’t aware that’s a tense (Past imperfect, I think) and in fact the majority think it’s “should of” (it’s NOT).

            But in French and Spanish classes the proper conjugation of verbs is drilled into you till it’s reflexive. And while that doesn’t help you learn the English versions, it at least makes you aware they exist.

            Présent
            Passé simple
            Passé composé
            Conditionel
            Imparfait
            Subjonctif
            Futur
            Futur proche

            I know I’m missing some, but not too, too shabby for out of high school for 42 years now.

          • Stubenville

            I’m acquainted with Dr. and Mrs. Vandertramp as well. And I think you’re right. =)

          • Priya Lynn

            I don’t see why I should accept you as an authority on this.

          • johncAtl
          • Priya Lynn

            tl;dr

          • Treant

            Obviously.

            However, simply remove “Barack and,” then use the pronoun that makes sense.

            Hence, “Barack and I loved your dinner” becomes “I loved your dinner.” Which is correct.

            “Your dinner meant a lot to Barack and I” becomes “Your dinner meant a lot to I.” Which is obviously wrong. Use “me” when in a direct or indirect object.

          • 2guysnamedjoe

            Strictly between you and I, that won’t change her mind.

          • David Walker

            Then don’t.

        • Reality.Bites

          You also managed to miss a national advertising campaign that ran over a decade and think you know something about the current price of pot in a vastly different, far more commercial market than existed when you last bought it.

          Maybe you should listen a bit more than you preach, because gurl, you don’t know shit about shit!

        • David Gervais

          I remember that too. The difference in usage is that the ‘rule’ applies to the subject, as in ‘I am writing…’ and ‘Barack and I are writing….’.

          In the letter, the verb is ‘means’, the subject is ‘it’ (The support of…) , and ‘me’ is the corrrect object. Two objects joined with and works the same way.

      • Cuberly Deux

        HA! In the thread on that tweet they say the same thing.

        • David Walker

          I know, I know, but we just can’t help it. We were born with red pens in our hands and can’t not use them when needed. But you’ll admit I was nice the way I handled it. Won’t you? Please? Well, nice for an old curmudgeon.

          • Cuberly Deux

    In case no one posted this down thread, only 35 years behind Canadian junk food advertising. Or more. Since ours openly targeted teens.

      Wow, those bring back some 3AM memories

      • Priya Lynn

        I don’t remember any of those commercials.

    • Cereal Companies are still in awe of this product first out in 1977 — the legendary “Cookie Crisp” with the brilliant ad headline Cookies for Breakfast! This garbage achieves 90% of its caloric value from various refined sugar formulations. My first ad agency job was at Leo Burnett Chicago on the Kellogg’s account and we were in awe of this messaging behind this product — it was brilliant. Children would march their moms in supermarkets and DEMAND this. Stoner demand was simultaneous (about 40% of this stuff was and is purchased by over 18’s). Even the commercials are trippy. https://youtu.be/901oJVn7pgg

    “The “Merry Munchie Meal,” which will be available at three California
    locations for a week in January for $4.20, features two tacos, french
    fries, onion rings, five mini churros, three chicken strips and a small
    drink”.

    That’s a lot of stuff for $4.20! Wish we got bargains like that in Canada.

    For me marijuana always killed my appetite.

  • Jean-Marc in Canada

    Smart move and why not?

  • Gustav2

    OT the next time someone you know calls Ohio’s Gov Kasich a moderate:

    Kasich signs Down syndrome abortion bill

    “Gov. John Kasich signed his 20th anti-abortion bill into law on Friday, this one banning abortions on fetuses diagnosed with Down syndrome.

    The bill does not specifically prohibit aborting a fetus with Down syndrome, but it applies to the mother’s motivation for getting an abortion and whether the person performing it knows the mother’s reasons.”

    http://www.dispatch.com/news/20171222/kasich-signs-down-syndrome-abortion-bill

    Another stupid law for the Christianists. 20 of them.

    • Lazycrockett

      and of course the state isn’t going to help raise a disabled person for the next 40 years, right?

      • Gustav2

        The state legislature tried to kill some programs in the State Health Dept and move them to Medicaid…and there was an uproar. You have to watch them every fucking minute.

      • i am not internet savvy, but is this right? when you want to say some extreme things that might not be appropriate for this particular blog?

        “…”

    • Reality.Bites

      Moderate? If he’s not a fucking Nazi he now qualifies as a RINO.

      (Yes, I know he’s horrible. But I’m 99% sure his loyalties are to the USA, which is more than I can say of any Republican in Congress. Any.)

      I just googled Onward Together and am finding mixed reviews. Some seem to view it as the Human Rights Campaign (also HRC) of the democrats, in saying it is raising a lot of money that it isn’t doing anything with.

      It was a quick google search, so I don’t pretend to have any deep knowledge. I am a Hillary supporter for sure.

      • as with all organizations, i look to who they have elected and how those people, if any, represent my interests. i like to do work locally, now, mostly. the Village* system is one i know too well to give what little i can to support it. trustifarians have their own money, they don’t need mine.

    POT IS A GATEWAY DRUG TO FAST FOOD!!

    JUST SAY NO TO FAST FOOD

  • Mueller Abides

    A small drink? Haven’t they heard of cotton mouth?

  • GanymedeRenard

    Meh

  • Sporkfighter

    Pot will be legal in California, and pot-smokers will be hungry. Sounds like entrepreneurship to me.

  • unclemike

    Frankly, any food company that doesn’t take advantage of legal marijuana is making a very dumb business decision.

  • KaBoomBOX

    Like you really had to “target” them.

  • e jerry powell

    Jack in the Box has been pushing Munchie Meals to potheads for years now; the only difference is the price, which is usually six bucks.
