Just when you thought you'd seen it all in the great fast-food restaurant race—where places are coming up with the craziest of concoctions known to man—Burger King announces that they'll be releasing a Lucky Charms milkshake and, holy hell, isn't this what dreams are made of?
It's like our fifth grade selves, where we used to mix together a bunch of leftover food on our lunch trays and dare our friends to eat it, are rejoicing over this news, secretly throwing out high-fives to whoever the mad scientist is that developed this.
So, what exactly is Burger King's Lucky Charms shake got in it? Pretty simple ingredients, actually, with more sugar than anyone should ever need.
According to USA Today, the shake consists of vanilla soft-serve ice cream, syrup, Lucky Charms cereal and, of course, marshmallows.
As for the nutritional info, well, let's just say you shouldn't drink one of these things unless you're really hoping for some cavities, because the Lucky Charms milkshake has a whopping 107 grams of sugar!
Per the USA Today piece, it has 740 calories, 17 grams of fat, 580 mg of sodium and 129 grams of carbohydrates. The cost is $2.99, and it'll only be available for a limited time at participating Burger King restaurants across the United States—which is probably a good thing considering all the sweetness in it.
Like Starbucks did earlier this year with its colorful Unicorn Frappuccino—which became a social media sensation—Burger King enters the extreme milkshake race with this Lucky Charms shake of theirs.
Oh, and because the company couldn't just let one cereal get all the love, it also plans to sell a Froot Loops shake, too, with the ingredients similar to the aforementioned Lucky Charms one.
Said Alex Macedo, Burger King's president of North America, "The mashup of our velvety vanilla-flavored soft serve and one of America's classic breakfast cereals is something we think our guests are going to love."
What do you guys think? Would you try one?
