Last Wednesday I mentioned the Holiday Shakes being back at Jack in the Box. Among this is the Pumpkin Shake.
It was around 9:30pm last night that I got the munchies for some Jack in the Box, and while in the drive-thru, decided I had to try the Pumpkin Shake.
Jack in the Box shakes are always pretty thick, so thick you can't really suck it up with a straw. Well, at least they're this way at the Jack in the Box I go to.
They definitely have a great pumpkin-pie like taste. The texture is very smooth and very creamy, and if you drink (or eat) it right away, it's quite cold.
I didn't find this to be extra sweet at all. It's almost like typical ice cream, but as an old-school milk shake.
I can't help comparing this to a Pumpkin Shake I had at Ruby's Diner a couple of weeks ago. The one at Ruby's also had a definite pumpkin taste, but I'd have to say Jack in the Box's is more smooth.
Pumpkin seems to make great flavored shakes. It's too bad you can't get them all year 'round. Now that they're here, I recommend getting one!
