Jack Makes the Yule Cool: Jack in the Box(R) Restaurants Roll Out Trio of Holiday-Themed Antenna Balls

SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 14, 2005--"On the third day of Christmas my true love gave to me ... three French hens ..." Wait a minute! Three French hens? Who wants a bunch of hens? That's not a gift! Thankfully, Jack in the Box(R) restaurants has the solution to your holiday gift-giving dilemma -- a threesome of fun and festive antenna balls that make great stocking stuffers or last-minute presents.

Dubbed Holiday Balls, the antenna ball trio features the popular likeness of Jack, the quick-serve chain's witty ad pitchman, in three adornments: reindeer antlers and a red nose a la Rudolph, a snowman's top hat and carrot nose, and a New Year's Eve 2006 party hat and noisemaker. Guests will receive one free Holiday Ball with the purchase of any large combo (excluding breakfast and Kid's Meals), while supplies last. The Holiday Balls can also be purchased separately for 99 cents each.

Jack's Holiday Balls are the latest in a series of antenna toppers offered by Jack in the Box since 1995, when the chain introduced its original antenna ball. Today, there are more than 27 million Jack in the Box antenna balls in circulation.
