CAC's Bacon Review: Jack in the Box's Bacon Milkshake

After months of frustration in finding new bacon-infused products, Jack in the Box hammered me with this ad (Youtube embed is below)

Now, the BLT Cheeseburger is ridiculous, because, well, it's a fucking Bacon Cheeseburger with a different name. However, viewing their website for Marry Bacon led to something that brought tears of joy to my eyes:


The Bacon Milkshake.

I was saddened to hear from Jack in the Box enthusiasts that there is no actual bacon in the shake (only bacon syrup), so this wouldn't be the true bacon ecstacy I have experienced with the bacon cupcake and the made-from-scratch bacon latte. Still, bacon is in the name. I am compelled to eat it.

But not without customization:

Bacon Milkshake Modified

Ask for it "glutton style", where they take actual bacon, break it up and sprinkle atop your whipped dairy and cherry. If your local JIB refuses to do that, screw em and drive to another (I went to three JIB's so far in Southern California, all three honored my request, albeit with the strangest looks on their faces).

While fast food should taste the same all over, as with the Double Down, it really depends on the location you visit. The first two did a fantastic job, with the shake having an overwhelmingly bacony taste, but no sour aftertaste. You shouldn't be reaching for a glass of water, which was the unfortunate result at the last location I visited.

As with most JIB shakes, give it a little time to melt, or just go at it like Michael Moore on a Christmas Ham and screw the straw. I do suggest ordering bacon on the side and dipping into the shake, as bacon is one of the few things in the universe you can a) never have enough of and b) just gets better the moar you consume.

Overall, a 6 out of 10. The flavor is great, but the lack of actual bacon (other than what I added in customization) hurts the overall score. For those less obsessed with bacon than me but in for a good dessert, very-soon-to-be-Mrs. CAC gave it an 8, and insisted real bacon would have "tasted too salty and soggy and nasty". But she also pooh-poohed my bacon latte, so what does she know?

Oh, and for your viewing pleasure, the greatest wedding ever, with perhaps the best double-entendre(?) ever inserted into a commercial:
