When I was a kid, I could't get enough of this tasty sandwich. I can still remember how it tasted and Jack in the Box has never made anything close to it since. Man I wish they would bring this one back!

I write JITB every few months requesting they bring this sandwich back. The. Best. Sandwich. Ever.

They were the best hangover food. But they really were good anytime. So delicious. Please bring them back. I would tell all my family and friends.

These sandwiches were THE BEST !!!! I crave them all the time. I tried to make my own version, but the secret sauce and the right poppyseed rolls make a huge difference. My homemade ones cannot compare,sadly. PLEASE JITB, bring these back!

I remember the Jack in the Box hot ham & cheese sandwich in the mid 1970's. It was called the "Yumbo". I sure miss them.

I have had memories of the Jack H H and C for most of my life. It most likely the oldest thing I ate at Jack, its at least the earliest in my memory for it was THAT GOOD. For some reason the one I remember the most was coming home at night after a day at Santa Cruz beach, the best one I ever had.

I think the only good memory of High School is, you guessed it, JITB Hot Ham and Cheese! I ate them 4or5 per day. I would give up smoking if they brought it back!

Sounds like you could just get the breakfast jack without the egg.
Stacy - June 27, 2011 - Report this comment
Oh no, Anne. It was nothing like the Breakfast Jack at all. If you don't remember the HH&C, you wouldn't understand.

I worked at JIB in the 80's when this sandwich was around. It was awesome! With that said, the sauce was an onion-mayo sauce spiked with a hint of horseradish. Thin sliced Danish/boiled ham. Processed (not aged) Swiss for its melting. They had a Monterey Chicken sandwich at the same time which used the onion mayo without the horseradish spike. (I also liked the Taco Bell Bell-Beefer.)

It was also my very favorite thing there. The bun was delicious and I have never understood why they took it off the menu

I taught I was the only person graving for this sadwich. I remember that it was provolone cheese they used, that's how much I miss it.

Best sandwich ever! Really wish they would bring it back! They probably were losing money due to how much ham they put on each sandwich! Wish my kids could of tried them! Bring them back Jack!!!!

Loved this sandwich on the way home from the bar. I would get two. The sauce was tangy and still had a bite similar to horseradish. I miss this sandwich very much.

Was the best sandwich they offered. I loved the sauce and the pile of ham that was on the sandwich. Man I wish I had one right now. So yummy!!!!

Richard, the Yumbo was Burger King

It was called the hot ham and cheese supreme and it came out in 1980. By 1982 there was also a bacon cheeseburger supreme, a chicken supreme, and a club supreme

Im always thinking of the Bacon cheese burger with a dark brown bun and black sesame seed looking things. It's just the flavors that changed as the years go by. Damn government lol

The HHC sandwich that Jack in the Crack was the best item on their menu! I'd eat two every other day or so. Then one day they suddenly disappeared. Never understood why, it was a great alternative to burgers.

Yes indeed, ole Jack in Da Crack served up an awesome HHC sandwich! That's the ONLY reason me and my homeys would go there. Ham piled high, cheese, sesame seed roll and secret sauce. They were huge but I could eat three at one sitting. Some say they've replicated the sandwich at home, but that's like saying you can duplicate a In N Out double double at home. It ain't happening!!

I still think about this sandwich! It was so good and I ordered it every time with my onion rings and I was in heaven. I was hoping someone had a copy cat of the sauce they used. I miss it!
