Unique milkshake will make Wayback Burgers' customers jump (and chirp) for joy

Fast-casual franchise adds new high protein milkshake made with crickets to its menu nationwide on April 1st.

Wayback Burgers_1Wayback Burgers, serving delicious, fresh, never frozen burgers and hand-dipped milkshakes in an atmosphere reminiscent of a hometown burger joint, today announced the addition of its newest milkshake flavor: the high protein cricket milkshake. Made with premium vanilla ice cream, chocolate syrup and high protein cricket powder, the high protein cricket milkshake is masterfully blended to deliver a flavorful milkshake packed with protein and calcium. The high protein cricket milkshake will jump onto the menu at Wayback Burgers locations nationwide beginning April 1 and is available in 22 oz. servings for a suggested retail price of $4.50.

Research shows a growing trend in cricket consumption, as they are nutrient-rich and an excellent source of protein. In fact, a 3.5-ounce serving of crickets contains nearly 50 grams of protein, which is a lot considering it is such a small amount of food. Crickets actually provide double the protein versus a 3.5 ounce piece of beef. According to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, crickets are a good source of unsaturated fats and small amounts of iron and can possibly lower the risk of heart disease.

“We are excited to announce our most unique milkshake flavor variation yet - the high protein cricket milkshake,” said John Eucalitto, president of Wayback Burgers. “We understand that this milkshake is not for everyone; however, crickets are high in both calcium and protein – and their consumption is a growing trend among fitness enthusiasts. Additionally, we did our research. We tested the high protein cricket milkshake in multiple markets over the past six months – and our guests absolutely loved it. Due to overwhelming demand, we thought it deserved a permanent spot on the Wayback Burgers' menu. So we hope our guests will push their limits and try one out – we guarantee that if you didn’t know it was made with crickets, you wouldn’t know it was made with crickets.”
