Employing the same thick, custardy, old-fashioned milkshake technique as the Oreo Shake, Jack in the Box’s Chocolate shake is as classic as they come. This milkshake uses a vanilla ice cream base infused with rich, velvety chocolate syrup. While you might prefer chocolate ice cream, the vanilla base complements the chocolate flavor perfectly. A little-known fact is that vanilla is usually a key ingredient in most chocolate desserts. It actually balances the flavor and neutralizes the bitterness of cacao. Jack in the Box’s chocolate shake is thus a well-balanced dessert, made even better with a dollop of whipped cream and a cherry on top.

You won’t need to travel to a New York deli to savor a creamy, decadent slice of New York cheesecake. Instead, you just have to travel to your neighborhood Jack in the Box counter. The NY Style Cheesecake at Jack in the Box has the classic graham cracker crust, cradling a fluffy, cream cheese batter that is equal parts tangy and sweet. The contrast between the creamy cake and the crumbly crunch of graham cracker crust gives it the perfect texture profile. While it may not have a soaked strawberry topping, you could request a drizzle of strawberry syrup.  


Vanilla Shake

How vanilla has become synonymous with plain is a mystery that this Jack in the Box dessert disproves every time. Vanilla is the original milkshake flavor and continues to be a fan favorite worldwide. This old-fashioned thick milkshake with creamy vanilla ice cream, whipped cream, and a maraschino cherry on top is as delicious as you’d expect it to be. There’s nothing wrong with playing it safe with a dessert like this! It’s not overly sweet, either. The whipped cream adds a comforting milky flavor that further mellows the sugar while complimenting the vanilla. 


Strawberry Shake

Strawberries and cream is an iconic pairing, combining a tart, subtly sweet berry with the velvety richness inherent in cream. The Strawberry Shake at Jack in the Box is less like strawberry ice cream and more like strawberries and cream, its flavor milkier and more delicate. The Strawberry shake uses Jack in the Box’s thick vanilla ice cream custard base and adds copious swirls of strawberry syrup. You won’t get chunks of fresh strawberry. You’ll just get a simple, perfectly thick strawberry flavored frozen custard served with whipped cream and a cherry. Its amazing texture and simple yet delicious strawberry cream flavor are enough to make the final dessert cut.
