Japanese-Style Onion Rings

The New Panko Onion Rings are Made with Japanese-Style Breadcrumbs

— April 11, 2016 — Lifestyle
Jack in the Box recently replaced its original onion rings with new Panko Onion Rings. While onion rings are already a staple on most fast food menus, this new version puts a lighter twist on the classic side dish.

The new Panko Onion Rings from Jack in the Box are made with panko crumbs instead of traditional breadcrumbs. The Japanese-style breadcrumbs are meant to give the dish a lighter and crispier texture, while also making the onion rings more flavorful. According to Jack in the Box, the chain looked into "multiple onion ring cuts, sizes, flavors, textures, batters, and breading options," before determining that panko crumbs were the best option.

The new side dish is part of Jack in the Box's ongoing effort to try and improve the quality of its ingredients and food preparation.
