It's that moment we've all been waiting for; bacon milkshakes from a fast food joint. Good news for your arteries is that it's so far limited to the US only. After all, while I think we can agree that milkshakes are good, and bacon is great, the combination of the two probably isn't that grand. Sadly for those who love their shakes warm and fatty, the shake is in fact bacon-flavoured rather than bacon-infused in the way that you can make Bacon vodka . That means it's technically vegetarian if you wanted to stretch the point. It comes out of the Jack In The Box chain in the US, and is flavoured with Torani bacon-flavored syrup, rather than thick, chunky strips of pure hog fat.
Now, if you'll excuse me, I need to go and throw up. Hey, maybe this is a diet item!
No, OK, it isn't. According to Jack in the Box a regular bacon shake has 773 calories and 40 grams of fat. That's no diet drink. But this YouTube video shows that it is, indeed, all too real.
If you do happen to be travelling to the States soon, the bacon milkshake is supposedly a secret menu item, part of Jack In The Box's "You Love Bacon? Marry It!" campaign. [Jack in the Box via Gizmodo US via Huffington Post]
