Finally: The 1,700-calorie bacon milkshake

Don’t tell Mayor Bloomberg about this new offering from Sonic… the little guy’s head might explode:
The fast food industry’s obsession with bacon has reached new heights of excess. Sonic announced on its Facebook page Thursday that its summer lineup of ice cream shakes would include one made with peanut butter and bacon…The result, as you might imagine, is tremendously unhealthy. The smallest size available size weighs in at 700 calories, more than you’ll find in a Big Mac. The largest size packs an incredible 1,720 calories, with 118 grams of fat and 128 grams of sugar. It also boasts 55 grams of saturated fat, which is 275% of the recommended daily value.
On second thought, please do inform Hizzoner about this important development. According to Sonic’s website, the chain boasts zero NYC locations, so Mr. Nanny’s ban-grab impulse will just have to go unsatiated. Although the resulting super-sad sense of unfulfilled ban-lust may prompt him to finally go for the gold — which I suspect would complicate Hillary’s life more than anyone else’s. So, um, Bloomy ’16!
