  • from calorie counts a portion sizes.

  • We wanted to find out all the differences between Shake Shack in the UK and the US This is food waas in the UK, Burgers come in two sizes, single on double and in the US are shake shack burgers also come in single or double.

  • We're gonna weigh the double Shack burger to find out if it's actually the same size in the UK as it is in the U.

  • S.

  • Oh, man, ours weighs a lot less, significantly less stuff With that shake shack in the UK, we can only get fries in one size.

  • This is it.

  • In the US, we also have only one size of fries.

  • Let's see how much weight I meant to say was, Let's see how much they weigh.

  • Yeah, Okay, so our portion of fries came to around 188 g.

  • What?

  • There's 188.

  • Ours is like a little over 100.

  • Like when I say one of five, I might be generous.

  • It's a lot less.

  • So far, the fries and the burger have been significantly smaller than the UK.

  • I thought we were the ones with the big portions.

  • Drinks from the UK Shake Shack come in two sizes.

  • Regular on large, the US we also have only two fountain drink sizes regular and large.

  • We're gonna measure them to find out how much is actually in these.

  • So a regular drink from a UK shake shack has about 400 millimeters in it.

  • Whoa.

  • Well, I should have a big one first.

  • A little over 16 ounces, if that's that's good.

  • Has been slightly over the scales.

  • I'm gonna, in my infinite wisdom, assume that's around 600 liters, Give or take a few.

  • Is that 16 to the little guy?

  • Hmm.

  • 6.5.

  • 16 plus six is 24 right?

  • 22.

  • Yeah, We'll give it a half.

  • So 22 a half fluid ounces for large milkshakes in the UK only come in one size.

  • We're not sure what it is.

  • So again, we're gonna measure it in the US, are shakes also come in one size.

  • I mean, this thing might be to the line.

  • 16 ounces.

  • Oh, got some bad news.

  • Counter.

  • Looks like it's a little under six announces Mm importantly in the U.

  • K.

  • You can also get beer from Shake Shack.

  • This normally comes in a serving off one point, however, unfortunately, due to the reduced menu from the pandemic, we could get one today.

  • The shake shacks in the US are still serving beer.

  • So the ones we got to go over cans 12 ounce and a 16 ounce I'm gonna assume since the same size cup that this is a pint fun pipe pipe for you are points in the UK are actually bigger than your points In the US we used imperial measurements and our points around 19 ounces.

  • Whereas yours are 16.

  • If all pine tree magically have to size, I'm just drinking twice as much.

  • I've never stopped to think how many fluid ounces in a beer It's like Get me out of here.

  • What about hot dogs?

  • Well, a hot dog from the UK Shake Shack is 6.5 inches long.

  • What in the heck is this?

  • They cut the hot dog in half.

  • Cursed image.

  • Um, I getting punked here.

  • First five guys and now shake shack.

  • I get it.

  • I'm fighting a losing battle against normal hot dogs.

  • Yeah, I mean, five guys reached out to May.

  • Haven't heard back from them, though.

  • At the recording of this shake shack.

  • You're on the list now, too.

  • You're on the list now, too.

  • I wanna know what's going on.

  • This hot dogs.

  • I did not bring the tape measure, but the good people at Apple have a nap that measures stuff for us.

  • This shoot, of course, is sponsored by Apple.

  • All right, so I'm going to measure this hot dog.

  • This is actually working 6.5 inches.

  • Thank you, Apple.

  • And it weighs 126 ground.

  • It looks like it's like exactly on 1.

  • 25 last.

  • But by no means least shake shack in the UK and the US are both known for being quite dog friendly.

  • On as such, you could get dog treats thes red velvet dog treats and they come in packs of five.

  • They were saying there's a red velvet.

  • I don't know what are supposed to be Oh, it's got to shake shack logo on.

  • You see that?

  • Oh, I don't like that.

  • I smell I'll be a little bit like a communion wafer.

  • I'm not getting red velvet Now.

  • We're gonna get the expert opinion on doctors Way.

  • This is Mabel the dog.

  • And she's gonna taste test the treats for us.

  • For Mabel Young E.

  • This is Mabel the dog.

  • We're gonna get her thoughts on the dog treats from shake shack.

  • What do you think?

  • Maybe.

  • Well, not bad.

  • Not bad d taste red velvet.

  • No, I don't have to taste the red velvet, but she seems to be enjoying it so I could get dressed.

  • Bring me the dogs.

  • They did.

  • Hey, Pa, You think?

  • Try and read.

  • You want a big one?

  • Hey, how is it?

  • How is it?

  • How is it?

  • Lead salt.

  • E mean, You see that?

  • You see what I'm talking about before?

  • About like, there's like they're, like, almost like those mozza crackers.

  • You get those really, like, tasteless ones that, like your mom gets because he is the one you're eating all that salt or whatever.

  • I don't know.

  • This has been my top favorite.

  • Go to dog treats, but in a pinch.

  • Yep.

  • So what you been up to during quarantine?

  • Yeah, unfortunately, shake Shack in the UK doesn't disclose any of its nutritional information.

  • However, we can get nutritional information in the U.

  • S.

  • So let's start with the calories in a standard meal.

  • If you get the double shack burger and the fries and a chocolate shake, you're looking at 2000 and 10 calories.

  • It's just a little bit over your entire daily recommended allowance, so just eat this everyday once.

  • What if you're in the mood for something even unhealthier?

  • Well, this right here is the Double Smoke Shack burger, and it's the most calorie thick standard burger at Shake Shack clocks in at 870 calories, just the burger.

  • This is also the menu item with the highest fat content in the U.

  • S.

  • One of these contains 57 g of fat, which is 73% of your daily allowance.

  • It's also the saltiest thing on the menu.

  • A double smoke shack contains a huge 3030 mg of sodium that's over 130% of your daily allowance.

  • Shake Shack is also unique in its approach to regional specialties, with pretty much every location having an exclusive burger or custom.

  • However, some of these are way less healthy than others.

  • For example, the least healthy burger found at any shake shake menu is a Lockhart link burger.

  • This is exclusive.

  • Onley TOE AUSTIN, Texas So listen up.

  • All you relocating Tech bro's and the Joe Rogan.

  • This is a burger with jalapeno cheese, shake sauce, pickles and a sausage link from Karez Market in you guessed it black heart.

  • If you get one of these is a triple.

  • It contains over half of your daily calories, more than 100% of your daily fat on almost double your daily sodium.

  • But the most calorific item found in any shake shake menu actually isn't a burger.

  • It's something called the double down fries.

  • They're found Onley in Vegas.

  • Double down.

  • Got it.

  • Okay, and they contain 1910 calories.

  • Those fries alone are 95% of your daily allowance.

  • I mean, give me a break here in Vegas, like you care it.

  • All right, Give me the fries.

  • I just lost my fortune.

  • Unfortunately, Shake Shack in the UK also doesn't disclose its ingredients.

  • That shady what's going on there?

  • Guys, give us some info to work with, and that's also the case here in the US We have reached out to them to see if they'd make an exception, but they cannot help us out.

  • What we can get is a list off allegiance, and it has a couple of fun things to note.

  • For example, there is a significant risk of there being traces off seafood in our Benaki concrete on there.

  • Also sell fights in our chicken bites on in the shack source.

  • We may or may not also have shellfish in our shrooms Burger Shack, Burger Shack, stack and Smoke Shack.

  • So there's no potential seafood.

  • The UK equivalent of these burgers have no idea why there might be shellfish and ours here in the US I couldn't even guess why.

  • But in better news all our Shake Shack's US beef freshly ground 100% Angus beef that's free from hormones and antibiotics, and the buns are non GMO.

  • Here is everything you can only find on the menu at a UK shake shack.

  • Here are all the U.

  • S.

  • Exclusive Shake shack items you cannot get in the UK.

  • Let's start with the burgers.

  • Here we have the shack meister burger.

  • Now this is a double version.

  • It comes with beef Patties, cheese shack source and then some crispy L marinated Shallots.

  • Yes, we pronounce it shallots.

  • That's the correct way to pronounce it.

  • You guys are wrong.

  • For a limited time in the UK, we can also get a spicy version off the chicken sandwich, which is the hot chicken sandwich.

  • This comes in hot or extra hot.

  • If you're feeling bold, we would usually be able to get some more exclusive hot dog options, including a shop cargo dog, which I think you might be able to get like a secret menu item in the U.

  • S.

  • On also a shack meister sausage, which is kind of like a hot dog, but with a Cumberland style sausage, which is something that's kind of popular here in the UK But unfortunately, HGTV reduced pandemic menu.

  • We weren't able to get these, Harry, you know my feelings about the hot dogs.

  • You know my feelings about hot dogs in general.

  • And I will say, as someone who was born and raised in Chicago, I would love to try the Chicago hot dog at the UK Shake Shack.

  • So when I come to visit, that will be our first stop.

  • Now, on top of the limited edition Hot Chicken burger We can also currently get some hot chicken bites as well as some spicy fries.

  • So the only two sandwiches that we ought to get a hands on that are exclusive to the US and not in the UK are the grilled cheese and the Corinne chicken sandwich.

  • Okay, First things first.

  • This grilled cheese.

  • Look at this thing.

  • Did you?

  • Is that you sit on this too?

  • This is ridiculous.

  • I wouldn't pay a dollar for this.

  • It looks like they took two buns, put cheese in it and then, I don't know, ran over with a steam roller or something.

  • Why is this so thin?

  • What does look actually bomb?

  • Is this the Korean chicken sandwich?

  • Yo, Yes.

  • Yes to this.

  • Oh, my goodness.

  • With the kimchi.

  • I'm telling you, I'm telling you, you want that.

  • Also think the chic chic in the U.

  • S.

  • Has you can't get the u.

  • K are the breakfast sandwiches were shooting this like four PM So surprising.

  • No one.

  • The breakfast sandwiches were not available, but usually if you get there, I'm assuming before 10.

  • 30 or 11, you get a bacon, egg and cheese, sausage, egg and cheese and just making cheese.

  • Check him out.

  • I have no idea if they taste good or not.

  • Also a thing you can get in the U.

  • S.

  • Is cheesy bacon fries.

  • But there's been sitting for more than a minute.

  • Oh, my God.

  • I think it's gonna come out like a disc.

  • Oh, God, I wanna make this perfectly clear.

  • There's none indictment of shake shake quality.

  • This has been sitting for, what, At least two hours.

  • It's bacon and cheese on fries, even if that consistency is still pretty good.

  • E mentioned this before, but there's like all these different regional things throughout the country.

  • So I don't know if this whole Korean sandwich and Korean Chicken bites is just in this area.

  • But I think I'm about to lose my mind.

  • No, you want us?

  • Oh, yes, yes.

  • To these, Yes, to these now, much like the way Us Shake Shack's have exclusive burgers and custard.

  • Some of the UK branches also have exclusive options themselves.

  • One we went to had a desert option called the Union Shack, which is a really terrible pun on the Union Jack, which is our flag Now.

  • It's effectively just a chocolate custard with some chocolate from British chocolate tears, however, unfortunately due to the pandemic reduced menu couldn't get that either.

  • And, of course, it wouldn't be a Shake Shack episode unless we talked about the shakes.

  • Now the UK wide exclusive flavors include coffee on caramel on.

  • Then the branch we visited also had a cinnamon toast shake, which I'm really intrigued by 60 next week.

  • It's not bad, very sweet and quite cinnamon e.

  • As you would expect.

  • It's so many different menu items across regions would be impossible for us to cover all the things that every specific shake shake in the US alone.

  • So, given the ones that we had that we went thio three exclusive shakes, we have our brownie batter, hot cocoa, vanilla, black sugar, cookies and cream.

  • Once again, End of the day.

  • End of the shoot.

  • Gonna put me into a coma after this?

  • Yeah, that's pretty good.

  • Like like has a little bit of like an extra chocolate nous to it.

  • Mhm.

  • It's not too sweet the caramel flavors there, but it isn't like chemically tasting.

  • That's the one to beat cookies and cream baby cookies and cream whip.

  • There you go.

  • E can't decide if that one's better.

  • That's so good.

  • Hey, you're not gonna believe the hot dog You wanna have the dumbest thing ever.

  • They're splitting
