Just a day after filing for a $100 million IPO, beloved burger chain Shake Shack has introduced it's first new "major" burger since 2012. And no, it's not made from gold or dollar bills. According to a press release, it's called the ShackMeister Burger. The creation was a winning entry at the 2014 Food Network South Beach Wine & Food Festival Burger Bash.
The ShackMeister features a 100% all-natural Angus beef cheeseburger that is topped with crispy marinated shallots (which sound like fancy onion rings) and the chain's signature ShackSauce. It's $6.19 for a single, and $8.99 for a double and will be available at all U.S Shake Shack locations (except at JFK, sorry travelers) for a limited time starting January 1.
Besides slinging their classic sandwiches like the ShackBurger, Shake Shack has a history of offering limited edition items. Earlier this year, the chain teamed up with a slew of famous chefs — like David Chang and Daniel Boulud — to create limited edition burgers, that were only available for one day each, for its 10th anniversary. The chain also partnered with pastry king Dominique Ansel on a Cronut hole concrete that drew serious crowds.
