Bacon milkshake… scary or wonderful?

21 Feb

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.

The Benefits of Sugar Cane Juice

30 Jan

Not only is it delicious and refreshing, it’s good for you! Sugar cane juice gets two happy thumbs up!
There is nothing like freshly squeezed sugar cane juice on a sunny afternoon in Chinatown Los Angeles.
The lady puts the sugar cane through some sort of juicer contraption to get the juice into the pitcher.

Benefits:

“Sugarcane is rich in phosphorus, calcium, iron, magnesium and potassium. Sugarcane is an alkalizing substance, and therefore is beneficial at fighting cancer. Studies have shown that it has proven an effective at fighting prostate and breast cancer cells.

Furthermore, it is exceptionally beneficial for rehydration as it not only cools the body but also energizes with a high quantity of useful carbohydrates and protein. The nutrients found in sugarcane are beneficial to inner organ functioning, including the kidneys, heart and brain.”
