What say you RHU? FAIL or WIN? I couldn't decide how to post this because I do love me some Hershey's and M&M's but 20 bucks seems seriously overpriced! And you know the store (Alberstons in this case) pulled the items from their stock which probably cost them all of a few bucks and as shoppers we all know the prices of those candy bars. Is it an extreme mark up for a fun novelty gift?
Tired of going to the trouble of making your own bacon milkshakes at home? You're in luck -- as long as you don't live in the Northeast or Midwest. Eater reports that Jack in the Box, which has 2100 locations in 19 states, is adding a bacon milkshake to its menu for as part of its new "Marry Bacon" ad campaign.
The ad for the Jack in the Box bacon milkshake includes the important disclaimer that the beverage's stay on the menu will be "as limited as limited can be," and encourages would-be shake drinkers to act fast.
A Jack In The Box spokesperson told the Huffington Post, "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."
After looking into the nutritional information on the bacon milkshake, we can't help but feeling relieved it won't be around forever. According to the Jack in the Box website, which lists the bacon shake as a beverage rather than a dessert, a "regular" 16 oz bacon shake weighs in at 773 calories and 40 grams and fat. A 24 oz large, meanwhile, add a whopping 1081 calories and 54 grams of fat to your meal.
We couldn't find any other examples of major chains serving bacon milkshakes in the past. But Denny's has been serving a bacon sundae since April, so Jack in the Box isn't the first chain to hop on the bacon dessert bandwagon.
Here's one man's Bacon Shake testament:
From Bookstore Slave:
Dear god, who thinks of this "shit"? Yes, it's a game where your little hellspawn feed a toy dog play-dough rolls, squeeze a hand pump according to a dice roll and the dog eventually shits it out. Your child "wins" if they collect more "dog shit" than their friends. PLEASE tell me you would never EVER let your children THINK of collecting dog shit, much less buy this fucking game!
May all your hellspawn never get a "whiff" of this new toy...
