Shack custard now with bacon

It tastes better with bacon. At least that's what most people tell me. When I was at VooDoo Doughnuts earlier this year, that theory proved to be accurate. What better way to celebrate the scientific method than to eat more foods topped with bacon? Critics may say that it's excessive. My doctor might tell me to slow it down. But I only listen to one person and... wait, no I only listen to my stomach and it's as big as a person. And when I saw a dude at Shake Shack with an ice cream cone topped with bacon... I had to see what was up.

"Hey man, what's that?"
"It's pancake custard topped with bacon! It's so good!"
"Oh yea? Is the bacon extra?"
"No they just asked me if I wanted it and it's free!"

Since I love free toppings, it seemed like a great idea to eat frozen custard in 50 degree weather. Not just eat it either, to eat it with BACON! Oh my imaginary cardiologist is just pissed off right now.

The pancake custard has been covered at Serious Eats: NY. But last week, Blondie and Brownie revealed that that was bacon topping.

So I guess it's not news, but here's photographic evidence of the bacon topping. You've already heard much about the pancake custard that doesn't really taste like pancakes... it sort of tastes like eggnog, you know just eggs and cream. It's nice and rich. The bacon adds a nice touch because it's a little crunchy and also the saltiness really balances out the flavors. It's good times.

Wait, I actually just checked Shake Shack's custard calendar for November and it's not even available anymore! This is what I get for waiting two days to post! But whatever, wait til next year!
