Jack in the Box shake, again

The drive-thru menu at Jack in the Box almost needs to be studied -- as in, oh no, there's an exam in two minutes and need to study fast (I don't but maybe somebody does) -- because there are a lot of choices including those "REAL ICE CREAM SHAKES" and I ordered "OREO Cookie" shake, again. And again some more times. The large size of shake was $2.99 but I don't know the price at other Jack in the Box locations.

A trend seems to be emerging in my shake drinking. This shake is very good and a lot of fun to drink. I could eat the shake with the spoon, though it wouldn't last more than a few minutes that way. Did I write that before? Probably. Who knows, maybe I'll write it again.

Arctic Orange Shake, then and now

This is a McCafé Arctic Orange Shake from McDonald's. (Same as the last post.) The shake is not quite like McDonald's Arctic Orange Shake from a few years ago. My first impression was that this McCafe shake isn't as yummy as the earlier shake. It didn't seem to have the pleasant orange flavor of the McDonald's Arctic Orange Shake of four years ago which I wrote about and later included in my favorite fast foods and beverages list.

You know where

Enough shake for me, but it's gone too soon. I'm swallowing the cherry now. No, right now! I saved it for last, though for no reason. Okay the cherry has been gone for a few minutes at the time this was posted, a minute before midnight.

Brownies aren't funny, they're delicious!

These brownies were hot out of the oven and cut while warm, just a few minutes before eating but not too many minutes because I had brownie hunger.

There's no logical reason for brownies showing up on a fast food blog, other than that it shows I'm real, I'm human, and also hmm let me think... if there were a combo meal of brownies, fries, and a soft drink I'd probably buy it. That's not intended as advice to fast food companies.

I'm attempting humor and while I should try harder, it's pointed out because someone could get the wrong idea and try to see how many brownies, fries, and sodas they can eat on a Saturday night, for example. Don't do that and if you are not able to apply thinking skills in everyday life, then please go away. Yes, another poor attempt at humor which of course would be better said by a really funny guy. However, I could be the writer, hint, hint.

Actually, I'd be more comfortable being in, sort of, a comedy material assembly line. We would start with a very, very funny man or woman writing the jokes, then it would go to another funny person for inspection, then the joke would come to me and I would take out a screwdriver and tighten the joke down a bit so it won't cause any injuries from the audience laughing too hard, then it goes on to another funny guy or gal, and then you would have an actual comedian look the joke over -- yawn for about 45 seconds punctuated by some painful looking expressions on his face-- and try to come up with his own jokes to explain that his writers went on vacation, or at least their minds are like on a cruise or something.

Pictured are Betty Crocker Fudge Brownies made from what the box describes as a "Traditional Chewy Brownie Mix" and on the back of the box, it tells you what other ingredients are needed and what to do.

Back to whatever comes to mind. Sometimes I get mixed up when baking, using a mix, but I try not to let myself down when I'm craving brownies.
