Jack in the Box's new, limited-time Hot Cinnamon Shake features vanilla ice cream and red spicy cinnamon syrup, finished with whipped topping and a maraschino cherry.
A 16-ounce "regular" shake goes for $2.69 at my local Jack in the Box.
Maybe it's the cold weather, but my Hot Cinnamon Shake was thicker than usual and took a bit of effort to draw up the straw. The vanilla base was smooth and creamy. The shake sports a deep pink color (I believe it's supposed to be hot pink) from the syrup.
The whipped topping and cherry was just decoration for me as I don't tend to eat either of them. I usually give the cherry to someone who wants it rather than let it go to waste though.
Overall, Jack in the Box's Hot Cinnamon Shakes is a pleasant blend of the taste of creamy vanilla and hot cinnamon candy. It skirts a fair middle ground between vanilla and hot cinnamon flavors that doesn't offend but might not quite satisfy fans of the candy.
