The Shelf Life Review: Hungry Jacks Mega Jack

With all the noise over multiple sizes of Big Mac and the Hungry Jack’s “equivalents”, I figured it was time to try the HJs Mega Jack. A Big Mac is often my Macca’s order, so it’s a concept I’m familiar with.

The first observation – even more amazing given this was delivered – is how decent this burger looks. Often a Macca’s burger will look like it’s been assembled from a distance even when dining in. You can see from the cross-section that my local HJs (Morley) did a good job.

As for the burger itself, what we effectively have is a double Whopper with lots of onions, lettuce and pickles. There’s only one slice of cheese (on the bottom half) which I think is a big mistake. The sauce doesn’t taste different to a “normal” HJs burger and ultimately it feels like a Whopper with too much missing. The extra bit of bread didn’t add anything.

This missed the mark for me, and I’ll be sticking with the original.
