SAN DIEGO–(HISPANIC PR WIRE)–September 5, 2003–Whether it came square-shaped and wrapped in cellophane or melted over an apple on a stick, caramel no doubt evokes memories of childhood, especially at this time of year. But today, caramel is showing up in more adult fare – from coffee drinks to gourmet ice cream – and now, thanks to Jack in the Box(R) restaurants, the tantalizing taste of caramel is just a shake away. On Monday, Sept. 8, Jack in the Box launches its Creamy Caramel Shake, the latest offering in the chain’s long line of real-ice-cream shakes that have included the Ultimate Berry, Strawberry Banana and Chocolate Banana.
“Though caramel has been around for years, it has recently surged in popularity,” said Tammy Bailey, director of menu marketing and promotions. “And while it’s more common in high-end ice cream and coffee products, we’re pleased to offer caramel’s rich, unique flavor in our high-quality, real-ice-cream shake.”
Made with velvety vanilla ice cream blended with authentic caramel syrup, Jack’s new Creamy Caramel Shake comes in 16 oz., 20 oz. and 32 oz. sizes for a suggested price of $1.99, $2.29 and $3.29, respectively.
