Milkshake Crazy!!!!

What I have noticed lately is the crazy amount of milkshake bars popping up around the place!! Now don’t get me wrong I am not complaining one bit but it has become a recent craze! I think one of the original milkshake or malts are the Eddie Rockets or Captain America’s milkshakes with a choice of vanilla, chocolate, strawberry, Oreo and Crunchie!! Then we had Gino’s yummy milkshakes in town where any flavour of ice cream you can make into a milkshake!! Of course there is the McDonald’s milkshake in strawberry, vanilla and chocolate and the one I’m not too sure about the “shamrock” milkshake!! This made the milkshake trend kick off! One of the first milkshake bars was set up in Douglas Court where you can add a range of chocolate bars to your milkshake! Suddenly after that was set up “Hotshakes” was set up on French Church Street where you can add absolutely anything to your milkshake they have over 150 options which start at €1.25. Hot Shakes boasts that if you want it, they’ll shake it.  To avoid feeling guilty, you can even have them add protein or some other ‘fuel’ to your custom beverage. Their flavoring options range from chocolate and cake to biscuits and fruit. Toffee popcorn is even listed as something you can have in your drink. I have never tried their Hot milkshakes I think it’s a little odd having a hot milk shake may as well go next to have a hot chocolate!!
Flirt Milkshake bar has opened up in Wilton Shopping Centre. This place is always so busy when I pass!! On a Wednesday afternoon in particular when all the schools have a half day it seems to be the hot spot to go!! They have a similar menu to Hotshakes where basically any chocolate bar you can add to your milkshake!!
HB swirls are the original ice cream bars in my opinion, the bar in Merchants quay and now they have recently opened in Mahon Point! It’s where you go when you are in the mood for an ice cream over a milkshake but the offer the same amazing toppings!! I wonder will they catch onto the sudden milkshake trend!?!?
What is your yummiest place to go for a milkshake!?!

  5. I think it's time for me start trying milkshakes out. I was never a big fan of them before but this may have persuaded me to get tasting.

  6. Must say Im a fan of the way the eddie rockets ones come in the mixer thing and you can pour them in to the glass yourself. Luigi Malones in town do savage malteaser milkshakes apparently though!
