Hungry Jack’s to offer cup full of vegies

Fast food chain Hungry Jack’s is to introduce a cup of vegetables as a side-dish.

The Salad Stix, a cup of hand-cut broccoli, carrot, celery and capsicum sticks, will be available with an optional hummus dip.

The vegetables can be added to a traditional value meal for an additional $2.50 or replace the fries in the meal for an additional $2. They will also be sold separately for $4.95.   

A spokeswoman for Hungry Jack’s told Mumbrella the Salad Stix are currently being trialled in selected NSW stores with a national roll-out expected in the coming months.

Aaron McKie, CEO of Hungry Jack’s said: “Salad Stix can only be described as a nutritional goldmine. It is a healthy snack of necessary nutrients without unwanted kilojoules and creates a whole new product category for fast food. No other industry player has taken healthy alternatives to this level.”

He added: “We have been quietly improving the nutritional profile of Hungry Jack’s products, with major reductions in saturated fat, sodium and sugar levels achieved at a significant cost to the company”
