In an attempt to one-up the competition, Jack in the Box has released a bona fide bacon-infused patty. Candidly named the "Bacon Insider," the new item comes decked out in a gourmet brioche bun, melted cheese, bacon mayo sauce and several bacon strips on top of a burger patty embedded with chunks of bacon.
We spotted the signage for the new item at a location on Main St. in Santa Ana, California. Naturally, we had our go-to fast foodie Peter snap some glamour shots.
Curly fries were a must to this mini adventure, naturally:

The shot below gives you a real closeup of the bacon chunks in the patty:
Overall, the burger was really tasty, with the bacon adding a nice crunch to the beef patty. Protip: order an extra side of bacon mayo to add a nice juicy sloppiness to the whole bacon-happy shebang.
At the moment, the Bacon Insider is available for a limited time at participating locations. The price is $4.99, but may vary by location.
OH, we also discovered that the new sandwich will be tied to a Super Bowl campaign featuring Jack and an animal dubbed as 'Bork,' a beef-pork spotted pig with horns that squeals "moink."
Seriously, we can not make this biz up:
I kid you not -- check this spot out, and watch it live on February 2nd:
