Jack in the Box recently introduced its new bacon milkshake. Yes, you read this right!!
BACON. MILK. SHAKE.
Made with real vanilla ice cream, bacon-flavored syrup, whipped topping and a maraschino cherry on top.
I want to first say that I am a major fan of bacon! Am I the only one that thought that chocolate covered bacon was a crazy (but delicious) idea? But with this milkshake I am both intrigued and disgusted. If someone dares me, I might actually try it… hah I’m just disappointed that it does not contain real bacon. What gives it the “bacon flavor” then? I don’t want chemicals, give me bacon!!
But what disgusts me more than the chemicals is that the 24 ounce bacon milkshake contains 1,081 calories, 37 grams of saturated fat, 3 grams of trans fat and 108 grams of sugar.
