IWYSWYG: Jack In The Box Chipotle Chicken Ciabatta Sandwich

It's time once again to play IWYSYWG; or "Is What You See What You Get?" You know where you see all the amazingly delicious looking FoodPorn that companies put out to make you drool on your shirt. Then when you get the burger or other food item depicted in the advertisement it looks like the server carried out to you in their back pocket.

Today's selection is the Chipotle Chicken Ciabatta Sandwich from Jack in the Box Restaurants. Below you can see the lovely stylized images that you are shown. Scrumptious!


Now here is the actual Jack In The Box Chipotle Chicken Ciabatta Sandwich that we received:

We only got the one sandwich and did not have a fancy plate to place it on for the photo shoot but we figured the nice box that it came in would be good enough.

Perhaps this should be called a Chipotle Chicken Ciabatta Salad Sandwich? I mean what is with all the lettuce anyways? I'll have to do a little harvesting before I can attempt to eat this thing!

Clearly these don't look the same do they? But would you have ordered it if your expectations were not set real high? Hey it has chipotle on it. I would have ordered it sight unseen. In any event it was actually quite delicious and I would get one of these again.

The Last Bite will have to grade this WYSIWYG with a C. The real this albeit delicious was not very close to the image. The bun was not as toasty looking and the only topping you see it lettuce. Better luck next time Jack In The Box.

Do you have a WYSIWYG? Send us the information and we'll follow up, or send us your photos and we'll post them for other to see If What You See Is What You Get!

Hi!
There is a movie, and I don't remember the name of it, circa 1980s, with Michael Douglas in it. He goes berserk when they don't give him the same quality, or quanity of hamburger that he saw in their ad. You would think that the fast food folks would catch on to this a little. Best to you!
