Shake Shack - Beer Nuts Custard

Beer Nuts.  Yup, you read that correctly, beer nuts.  What a crazy flavor for a custard, right?  Oh Shake Shack, you always keep things interesting.

Here's the official description courtesy of the Shake Shack Facebook page:

BEER NUTS (Adults Only) - marries our frozen custard with the hoppy, fruit-like qualities of our ShackMeister Ale for a refreshing sweet & savory combo, with crunchy caramelized pecans added in for a sugary bite.

As you can tell from the photo, the custard doesn't really look all that different than their regular vanilla custard, haha.  However, once you take a bite, there's a faint hint of BEER which is bizarre and interesting all at once.  The crunchy sweet pecans added texture and a tasty flavor to this custard, I am glad they added those.  

And in case you were wondering, they really do stick with the "Adults Only" rule - I was carded for this cup of custard, haha!
