Who remembers walking to the corner store on a stinking hot day to get a big, ice-cold milkshake. It was the ultimate treat for us kids back then as we happily clutched the coloured anodised cups they were served in and sipped so quickly that we ultimately got a brain freeze!
You knew you were having a real good-old fashioned milkshake when you ordered one of the standard flavours consisting of lime, chocolate, vanilla, blue moon, caramel, banana, strawberry and bubble gum, all of which were served with double malt and 2 scoops of ice cream. Best!!
Now the humble milkshake has had a complete makeover. It’s almost unrecognisable served in it’s hipster mason jars with toppings of extreme proportions. The servings and toppings are as gargantuous as they are elaborate. Churros, Oreos and even pistachios are seen amongst the new breed of milkshakes hitting counters around the world.
We’ve compiled a list of AMAZING milkshakes for you try at home before the end of summer this year. But be warned- these are nothing like the Blue Heaven milkshakes you used to have from the fish and chip shop…
