Jack in the Box Bacon Milkshake

In addition to launching their new “Marry Bacon” ad campaign with a commercial in the 2012 Super Bowl, Jack in the Box added a “secret” item to their beverage selection to further emphasize their love of bacon, The Jack in the Box Bacon Milkshake. If you love bacon and don’t happen to live near a Jack in the Box restaurant, use our Jack in the Box Bacon Milkshake recipe to make your own sizzling milkshake at home. While you will not find the bacon milkshake listed on the menu, it is available for a limited time if you ask for it. The smoky, bacon flavor does not come from actual bacon, however. Instead, the San Diego-based fast-food chain uses “bacon flavored syrup” in their drink.

  • To make a milkshake with fewer calories, substitute whole or skim milk for the half & half.
  • While the Jack in the Box Bacon milkshake does not contain actual bacon, you can sprinkle bacon bits on top of the whipped cream for additional bacon flavor and crunch.
  • Torani flavor syrups come in a multitude of flavors, many of which can be found in your grocery store. If you are having difficulty finding the bacon flavor, it can be ordered directly from the Torani website.[4] You can also experiment by using different Torani syrups in this recipe to create new flavors. Try substituting chocolate ice cream to add even more variety to your milkshakes.
