Yes, this is a Jack in the Box bacon milkshake. Yes, I bought and tasted this. For science. You monster.

It was… it was… surprisingly inoffensive! The bacon flavor (provided by Torani syrup, from what I understand) wasn’t particularly fake-tasting, and in fact the whole thing tasted exactly like a Frost smokey bacon maple bar — if said bar were liquified and sucked through a straw, that is. I threw it away after a few sips, but that was for the sake of my diet, not because I was gripped by disgust.

Speaking of disgust: no, I didn’t have a Jumbaco, although I may have had two thirds of a Jumbaco. If anything, that was the mistake of my day.

In related news, yesterday’s Bizarre Foods America was about Seattle. Seattle! I was thinking, how bizarre can you actually get in Seattle? Oh, look, he’s at Marination. Now he’s at the first Starbucks. Tasty, but not especially biz… Aaaand now he’s eating a raw cow placenta. Okay.

    wow! I didn't think a bacon milkshake would even be possible, truly we are living in the future now :)

  • Blaisedell, the poet, had said to him, “You love beer so much, I’ll bet
    someday you’ll go in and order a beer milk shake.” It was a simple piece
    of foolery but it had bothered Doc ever since. He wondered what a beer
    milk shake would taste like. The idea gagged him but he couldn’t let it
    alone. It cropped up every time he had a glass of beer. Would it curdle
    the milk? Would you add sugar? It was like a shrimp ice cream. Once the
    thing got into your head you couldn’t forget it.

  • I don't believe, in looking for a quote about milkshakes, that Steinbeck would be my first instinct. Bravo.

    I, for one, appreciate you putting your body on the line for the rest of us. Bless you ... bless you ...

    I actually recall seeing that Torani Bacon syrup in a Cash & Carry in the past few months ... 

  • Haha. For SCIENCE.
