FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — And here we thought bacon cotton candy was pushing the pork-product envelope.
Fans at the Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth will be able to get a bacon-infused milkshake at the Texas 500 Nascar races coming Oct. 31.
The Houston Chronicle reports the new creation follows in the footsteps of the speedway's famous bacon cotton candy.
Executive chef Joel Pena of Levy Restaurants, which handles concessions, created the concoction for the race.
It includes six ounces of vanilla ice cream, two ounces of bacon syrup, two ounces of candied bacon, and half a bottle of black lager.
Topped with whipped cream and bacon bits, the shake costs $10. Non-alcoholic versions will also be available.

• 6oz Rahr & Sons Ugly Pug Black Lager
• 6oz Blue Bell Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream
• 2oz Bacon Infused Maple Syrup
• 1 Strip Smoked Bacon
Finished with 3 oz Whipped Cream, and Bacon Crumbles
