Can we get a drumroll please….
Shake Shack is releasing a new Black Truffle Burger and Parmesan Garlic Fries with Black Truffle Sauce.
Just when you thought your favorite burger chain couldn’t get any better.
After a successful pilot last December, the items will be available nationwide starting Friday, October 15 through January 10.
For exclusive early access, Shake Shack fans can use the Shack App to order starting Tuesday, October 12, and taste the new truffle items wherever and however they want.
Disclaimer: No fancy white tablecloth required.
Both items are made with Regalis Foods’ USDA Organic Black Truffle Arbequina Oil. Not the fake stuff you can buy at Costco—this is legit.

Founded by Ian Purkayastha in 2012 at age 19, Regalis Foods is New York City’s leading importer of rare and specialty foods.
The brand is highly regarded among high-end restaurants for its luxury products including Fresh Truffles, Japanese Wagyu, Caviar, Uni, and more.
The company direct-imports products from 40+ countries and works with 90% of the Michelin-starred restaurants in the U.S.
With Shake Shack’s fine-dining roots and commitment to using high-quality ingredients, Regalis was an ideal partner for the new items.
“Inspired by our fine dining roots with an emphasis on premium ingredients, we love crafting fun, delicious menu items in an elevated way. Our new Black Truffle Burger blends our roadside burger DNA with our fine dining heritage and is meant to be enjoyed by all - whenever and however our guests want it!” Mark Rosati, Culinary Director, Shake Shack.
The oil, flavored organically with real truffles, is the only truly natural truffle product on the market.
Most consumers aren’t aware that 98% of truffle products sold globally are artificially flavored with synthetic lab-created essences and aromas.
“Made with USDA Organic Black Truffle Arbequina Oil from Regalis, one of the most respected luxury food purveyors in the country, the black truffle sauce takes our Shackburger to the next level. It boasts truffle and umami flavors with the addition of caramelized mushrooms, thyme, fresh bay leaf, port and Madeira fortified wines, and parmesan cheese. We add aged sherry vinegar to balance the umami and overall richness. The Black Truffle Burger, paired with our classic crinkle-cut fries topped with garlic parmesan cheese, is the perfect comfort meal this fall.”
Inspired by traditional black truffle pairings, the new Black Truffle Burger elevates a Shake Shack classic and offers guests a fun and accessible way to enjoy the delicious and highly regarded truffle flavor.
