Just when you thought the unnatural obsession with bacon couldn’t go any further fast food chain Jack in the Box has introduced the above. I’m surprised it is garnished with fake cherry and not a piece of bacon, but I guess that might push the food costs up too high.

Made from sustainable Heritage bacon? 5,4,3,2,1….
These shakes are only available in certain markets : The South and the West coast so if you live somewhere else you are going to have to wait or make your own. Funny thing about this recipe is that mostly it’s a maple shake with some bacon fat thrown in for good measure.
And just in case you want more bacon with your bacon, here is one a commercial for Jack In The Box that is truly horrifying (at least to me)…you may now eat the bride? For real, watch:
