Jack's New Breakfast Pita Pocket

Jack in the Box has a new breakfast item called the Breakfast Pita Pocket.

It is a whole grain pita pocket stuffed with scrambled eggs, sliced ham, bacon, and melting American cheese. It is served with a side of 'fire-roasted' salsa.

It can be had for $2.69.

Jack's Breakfast Pita has 424 calories and 22 grams of fat.

I've e-mailed Jack in the Box for verification, but according to their nutrition data, the Breakfast Pita has 438 mg of Cholesterol. That is a lot! It is 146% of the USDA recommended daily amount!

The complete nutrition facts are below.

"Jack in the Box has one of the most varied breakfast menus in the quick-serve segment of the restaurant industry, with products ranging from sandwiches and biscuits to croissants and burritos," says Tammy Bailey, division vice president of menu marketing and promotions for Jack in the Box Inc. "With the addition of our new Breakfast Pita Pocket, which features a pita bread made with whole grain, we're able to offer our guests even more variety when it comes to this important daypart. And because we serve our full menu all day every day, guests can order the new Breakfast Pita Pocket any time."

of course it looks good in the picture; however, based on the ingredients and being at just over 400 calories, it must be pretty small.
