Jack in the Box offering bacon shake for limited time

(WTOP) WASHINGTON - Now bacon lovers can get their fix through a straw.

The restaurant chain Jack in the Box is offering customers the option of a bacon milkshake. The creamy concoction doesn't include actual bacon, but rather a bacon-flavored syrup mixed with vanilla ice cream and capped off by whipped topping and a maraschino cherry.

As for its nutrition rundown, a 24-ounce shake includes 1,081 calories, 37 grams of saturated fat, 3 grams of trans fat and 108 grams of sugar.

Jack in the Box is now in 20 states, although there are none in D.C., Maryland or Virginia. Area residents with a bacon shake craving should head to North Carolina for the closest Jack in the Box.

One more tip: The limited-time offering is not listed on restaurant menus. Customers have to ask for it.

HAHAH! I was going to send this to you! I figured it would show up on Amentior, but I guess your blog is more appropriate :)
