This Popular Burger Chain Just Added a Bold, New Sandwich

The sandwiches come with fixings you know and love: lettuce, tomato, and mayo.

Both options are available at select locations in California and Nevada through Dec. 12—or while supplies last.

Specifically, they'll be on sale in Monterey, Salinas, and Reno.

The alternative protein, made in partnership with Tyson Foods' Raised&Rooted brand, combines pea protein isolate with Jack in the Box's traditional crispy breading.

The fast food chain has touted its new menu item as "the first plant-based chicken sandwich at retail in the U.S." KFC earlier debuted Beyond Fried Chicken , which it dubbed "the first plant-based protein to be offered at a national chicken chain in the U.S." (Jack in the Box isn't affected, but here are 9 Restaurant Chains That Closed Hundreds of Locations This Summer .)

"We are excited to meet the growing demand for meatless alternatives with our new Unchicken Sandwiches providing indulgent taste, crispy crunch, and savory flavor in a new plant-based option," the chain's chief product officer Jennifer Kennedy said in a news release .
