Bacon milkshake? Yes, from Jack in the Box.

Bacon milkshake is available for a limited time as part of from Jack in the Box's new 'marry bacon' ad campaign. Bacon milkshake doesn't appear on the menu. You have to ask for it.

Noting a lack of true bacon flavor, Edwin Goei at the OC Weekly calls the shake “less a marriage to bacon than a harmless flirtation”

“It’s like I’m 90 years old and I have to drink my food,” said a man taste-testing the shake on film for CNBC’s Jane Wells in a California mall.

Food items like the bacon milkshake are fun in theory, and they get their purveyors into the news for a few days. But in all likelihood, very few people are actually buying a Double Down or the McRib for lunch on a regular basis.

Nor is bacon in dessert anything new. Last year, Denny’s introduced a “Maple Bacon Sundae” as part of its “Baconalia” festival; unlike the Jack in the Box shake, it came topped with real bacon. Chocolate candy bars with bacon bits have become an increasingly common sight in many grocery stores, including Whole Foods. A quick Google search unearths scores of recipes for homemade bacon milkshakes, most of them involving maple syrup, ice cream and, well, bacon.

Still, if curiosity gets the best of you, visit and type your Zip Code into the store locator to find a Jack in the Box near you.
