SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 3, 2006--How do you improve upon perfection? It's not easy, but Jack in the Box(R) restaurants has figured out a way to make its real ice cream shakes look and taste even better - with a swirl of creamy whipped topping and a cherry!

Jack's new shake style, which also features a clear plastic cup with a dome-shaped lid to contain a heaping serving of whipped topping, is available with all of Jack's famous shake flavors, from Orange & Cream to Vanilla Malted Crunch.

"We're known for our high-quality shakes and innovative flavors," said Teka O'Rourke, director of menu marketing and promotions. "Adding whipped topping and a cherry to our shakes is a great finishing touch that makes them even more special. And come on, everything tastes better with a cherry on top!"

If shakes don't satisfy your sweet tooth, Jack's new Chocolate Chip Cookie Cheesecake - a decadent dessert of creamy cheesecake topped with a chocolate chip cookie - might do the trick.

Jack's new shake style is available for the suggested prices, excluding tax, of $2.49 for a regular and $2.99 for a large at all participating Jack in the Box restaurants.
