What's Shakin' Bacon?

A reliable source told me that Jack In The Box has an unadvertised bacon shake! This shake is underground, is not on the menu, and unless you know about it you would never know that it is there! Sort of like ordering "animal style" at In-N-Out. I knew instantly that I had to try it. I went to Jack In The Box and sure enough, it exists! It looks like a normal milkshake, but the taste is definitely not normal.  It is a vanilla milkshake with bacon syrup in it and let me be the first to tell you not to try it! You can taste the smokiness of the bacon and it literally triggered my gag reflex!

 The world is obsessed with bacon. My Uncle Matt puts it on everything. I have to admit I like it too but not as an artificial flavoring! Artificial flavorings are often gross, especially banana flavoring. Ick.

There are really only three main things I took away from this experience...
  1. Bacon flavoring is gross.
  2. Just because it isn't on the menu doesn't mean it's good.
  3. This would be perfect for vegetarians!

Next time I am at Jack In The Box, I'll stick with the tacos.


  1. one of the Great ones!

  2. Not sure what to say... I trust your reviews - but at the same time I can't get past the following: (1) I love bacon; (2) I love milkshakes; and (3) I love Jack in the Box. Therefore, it seems impossible that I would not love a bacon milkshake from Jack in the Box. I am troubled.
