Jack in the Box Chicken Nuggets taste impression

The other day, I felt like trying the chicken nuggets at Jack in the Box. In my opinion, it was way better than I had expected to be quite honestly. What I liked about it was the flavor. It's very different compared to McDonald's. I I noticed that the flavor was much more salty and resembled more of an onion/garlic flavor as opposed to other fast food nuggets that I've tried.

I'm not sure if this was the Jack in the Box location that I visited, but I noticed that the nuggets were made of a softer breading, while McDonald's has more of a crusted look. I also noticed that these nuggets were much softer and not as crunchy or crisp as compared to McDonald's. Not that it's a bad thing, but I tend to prefer softer nuggets anyway, so this was a positive for me.

Well, for the photo view, these nuggets are sure different from MCD, more similar to KFC instead. Yummy!
