    In 1950 a man named Robert O'Petersen built the first Jack-in-the-Box restaurant at El Cajon and 63rd streets in San Diego, California. The restaurant was originally built for drive-thru and walk-up service only, and customers would speak into a clown's mouth to order their food. The clown was blasted to smithereens with explosives in a 1980 advertising campaign, however, signifying a shift toward a more diverse adult menu. 

    The signature Jumbo Jack Hamburger has been on the menu since 1974.

    If you live in one of the 15 or so Western states served by Jack in the Box, you have no doubt cracked a gut from the hilarious TV ads produced by this popular hamburger chain. In the spots a suit-wearing Jack runs the company, even though he's got a giant bulbous antenna ball for a head with a smiley-face painted on it. He has a private jet, plays golf, even has kids with mini antenna-ball heads. 

    Jack also has a featured shake flavor that, it turns out, is very easy to make at home with a blender, ice cream, milk, and a handful of Oreo cookies. Sure the drive-thru is convenient and easy. But if you don't feel like going out, now you can enjoy this clone at home from the first fast food chain in the country to use a drive-thru window way back when.

    There's no need for artificial coloring or flavoring when recreating this chains delicious "limited-time only" holiday milkshake. Real canned pumpkin and pumpkin pie spices will do the trick in this Top Secret version. For the spices, rather than gathering up four costly bottles to use only a small amount from each, toss some pumpkin pie spice into your basket. Its a handy blend of cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and allspice that will be near the other spices in your market - McCormick makes a small size that's cheap. Combine everything below in a blender until smooth, and in a flash youve whipped up two servings of a delicious duplicate that can now be enjoyed any time of the year.
