JITB vanilla malted crunch shake

Lemme tell ya it's been tough times uncovering viable news-you-can-eat. (and not just cuz blogger has been a HUGE pain in the ass. too many new blogs, man) Oh there’ve been new prods. New prods that deserve a blog item. But tragically, none has been available at NYCE HQ. Thus no blog item re the new Dunkin Donuts smoothies (sold only in east & mid-atlantic). No blog item re starbucks’ breakfast samwiches (only in chic & seattle). No blog item re Pepsi Gold (only in india). But Jack in the Box comes to the rescue with its vanilla malted crunch shake. It’s part of JITB’s annual retro-deal (patty-melts-etc) and is really just a vanilla version of the extant choc malted crunch shake. But underestimate-not its greatness, which derives from two sources: 1. MALT. The all-time best flavor ever. 2. seems like it'll have a better balance than the choc which truthfully is a bit much.

UPDATE: Piece-of-shit alert (and no this is not about blogger, altho it should be) - have sampled this shake and THERE IS NO MALT. repeat, THERE IS NO MALT. it's a frigging vanilla shake. F JITB

well, it says right in the article that they are PIECES OF MALT CANDY, not a malt shake...

NO MALT is right, the pieces have NO MALT FLAVOR and I'm an expert.

I've had the chocolate malted crunch shake, and it has a malt flavor throughout the shake. Not just in the malt pieces.

Malt candy is not malted milk powder, which is what malts are made of.

If you put a few M&Ms in a vanilla shake, it doesn't make it a chocolate shake, does it?

Clairevoyant was also first in line at the Duty Free when Baileys has handing out their new caramel and mint flavors.

It's like she just knows!

Some idiots seem to think that "malt" is the same as "milkshake."

Hey, I once had a soda jerk. Haven't we met? At HP Pharmacy on Knox, perhaps?
