Really, really love bacon?
Then this might be the drink for you.
Jack in the Box, the sometimes out-there burger chain, has come up with a belly-buster idea to cap it’s “Marry Bacon” advertising campaign.
It’s offering a bacon milkshake.
Kind of sidesteps the old bacon burger and a shake idea, doesn’t it?
If you’d even consider consuming a bacon shake, you’re probably not going to worry too much about the nutritional aspect. Still, your cardiologist would want you to know: the 16-ounce shake has 773 calories and 40 grams of fat. The 24-ouncer (hey, why downsize?) weighs in at 1,081 calories and 54 grams of fat.
Huffington Post quotes a Jack in the Box spokesperson saying, “The shake is not listed on our menus in the restaurants, so it’s more of a ’secret item’ that people can order. Each restaurant is getting a very limited quantity, so we don’t know how long they will last.”
The same might be said for those who drink one of these.
By the way, if you get a rave on for a bacon shake, you’ll have to drive to South Carolina. That’s the nearest state with Jack in the Box locations.
