Shake, Shake, Shake: It’s Green & the Other One is Meaty

Shamrock Shakes are back and according to CNN, our long national nightmare is over, it’s available countrywide … apparently it was not available at every McD’s before but 2012 … it’s everywhere you have a hankering for a vanilla shake with green coloring and mint flavoring (whoops, did I let the secret out of the bag?).


While I have never checked the nutritional content of a Shamrock Shake, I’m guessing you definitely do not want to look too closely at these numbers … the Jack in the Box new BACON SHAKE …

The good news is there are no actual pieces of bacon but bacon-flavor syrup … or is that the bad news? Let us know what you think.

Did you know there was actually a mascot-creature for the Shamrock Shake?

Uncle O’Grimacey.

I guess I just did not watch enough TV as a kid … I remember the weird fry guys but not him …

    Bacon in a dessert setting is odd but fairly common I think – chocolate-covered bacon, bacon strips over long donuts – but I just cannot picture it in a vanilla shake.

    I love Shamrock Shakes but I think I will avoid Bacon Shakes. We don’t have Jack in the Boxes around here in PA anyway. We stopped at one on a road trip to Missouri this summer and it was subpar IMO anyway.

    Okay my opinion for the Bacon Shake is…DISGUSTING! Bacon syrup??? That is almost as bad as replacing it with ketchup. I guess I have never tried one so I don’t know for sure if it is gross (but I sure don’t intend on trying one)

    The shamrock shakes look like they would be fun (and better tasting).

    Not neat!

    Don’t remember the shamrock guy either…
