What’s better than bacon? Many might say nothing. But what about bourbon-infused bacon? Do I have your attention now? Shake Shack recently released two new menu items featuring a bourbon bacon jam.

The Bourbon Bacon Cheddar Burger and Bourbon Bacon Cheddar Chicken sandwich, launched on May 6. Shake Shack’s bourbon bacon jam marries Maker’s Mark Kentucky bourbon, which is aged to taste and has notes of vanilla, caramel and oak, with bacon that is smoked for six hours using real hardwood applewood. The irresistible result is condiment that’s sweet and savory, with woodsy and smoky notes and a kiss of heat. 

The Bourbon Bacon Cheddar Burger includes a white-cheddar cheeseburger, made with fresh 100% Angus beef, topped with the aforementioned bourbon bacon jam, crispy shallots and ShackSauce on a toasted potato bun. The Bourbon Bacon Cheddar Chicken Sandwich is a crispy, whole white meat chicken breast topped with white-cheddar cheese and bourbon bacon jam over pickles on a toasted potato bun.

Starting at $8.00 a sandwich, both are available now at Shake Shack locations nationwide.

Shake Shack’s New Black Truffle Menu Available Nationwide

Black truffle menu items always have an air of lavish aura around it, enticing diners with its nutty, earthy, and uniquely savory flavors. This reputation is the very reason why Shake Shack’s Black Truffle menu had a successful test last December at four New York and California locations.

And with that success comes a much wider nationwide release of the Black Truffle menu, which includes a Black Truffle Burger and Parmesan Garlic Fries with Black Truffle Sauce. The Black Truffle Burger is a gruyere cheeseburger topped with black truffle sauce and crispy shallots on a potato bun, while the Parmesan Garlic Fries also gets a topping of the decadent black truffle sauce.

Both menu items are made with Regalis Foods’ USDA Organic Black Truffle Arbequina Oil, which is flavored with real Spanish black truffles, and are available nationwide starting Friday, October 15 through January 10.

Those who have the Shack app can get early access to try the new Black Truffle menu starting October 12.
