Subway and Halo Top Announce Their New Collab Milkshake

Photo: Subway

It appears to be the year of the healthy fast food brand, with restaurants from Burger King to Del Taco attempting to health-ify their food with options like plant based protein. The newest challenger to appear in the ring is Subway, who just announced their partnership with Halo Top and their plans to introduce a milkshake using Halo Top’s trademark low calorie, high protein ice cream.

Starting July 22nd, the milkshakes will be available in nearly 1,000 stores in six different test markets: Colorado Springs, Colorado; Hartford, Connecticut; Longview and Tyler, Texas; Salt Lake City, Utah; Toledo, Ohio; and West Palm Beach, Florida.

There’s three flavor options: Vanilla Bean, Chocolate, and Strawberry.

Halo Top made a splash in the ice cream market a few years back by offering pints of ice cream that could be shamelessly killed in one sitting, as each pint ranges from 280-360 calories and carries 20g of protein. Finally, there was a way to kill a pint in bed after a bad day and not just feel worse afterwards. Finally.

The new milkshake hopes to offer the same highs of a sweet treat without the lows of that shameful, bloated walk to the trash can with an empty pint. Each one carries 350 calories or less, 20g of protein, and 30% of your daily calcium intake.

As a Halo Top fanatic, this is the first thing that gave me an impulse to step in a Subway in years. If you’re in the test markets, make sure to go try one out, guilt-free, since I can’t.

Cleveland Restaurant Ships Milkshake 375 Miles As Woman’s Last Wish

Picthx Yelp

A Cleveland, Ohio restaurant stepped up in a big way when they found out one of its customers had a last involving one of its milkshakes.

Emily Pomeranz was a Cleveland native, who was unfortunately placed in hospice care way out in Arlington, Virginia due to pancreatic cancer. Her good friend Sam Klein tried his best to grant every request that came from Pomeranz, and aside from a Cleveland Indians hat, Pomeranz really wished she could have at least one last milkshake from a Cleveland diner called Tommy’s Restaurant.

The two had grown up in Cleveland, and the Tommy’s milkshake is a staple in the Ohio city. While it seemed almost impossible to get her one last shake, Klein contacted Tommy’s to see if anything could be done.

Tommy’s immediately responded by saying, “Yes. We will figure out a way to do this,” and sure enough, although they were 375 miles away, they made their way to a UPS facility and actually got that milkshake into Pomeranz’s hands before her untimely death this July.

Klein told the story on his Facebook page, with a picture of Pomeranz, ecstatic to be holding her Tommy’s milkshake. Klein said that Pomeranz and her family were extremely grateful to get such a special request granted, and they talked about it for days.

We often take for granted the uncanny ability food has to bring people together, and this story went above and beyond to remind us all of it. As long as there’s love, and selflessness involved, the way both Klein and Tommy’s showed, the food will always taste much better.

“Food Thief” Creates Milkshake Slip-N-Slide At Chick-Fil-A In New Viral Tirade

The recently arrested social media thief, primarily known as Boonk.IG on Instagram, was apparently let out of jail, and immediately celebrated his 1 million Instagram follower milestone the only way he knows how — with an impromptu milkshake slip-n-slide inside Chick-Fil-A.

 *The video below contains graphic language*

Thanks For The 1Milly Everyone !! Had Me A Strawberry Milkshake Celebration 😂🍓💦 #boonkgang

A post shared by BOONK (@boonk.ig) on

Boonk, who’s real name is John Robert Hill, is the 20-year-old infamously known as the Dunkin Donuts thief, a crime which he was arrested for earlier this week. It seems Hill isn’t worried about his legal problems. His attorney claimed the Dunkin stunt was a, “do it for the vine,” prank that was, “not that funny,” and, “not that smart.”

Still, it’s hard to say if his antics are just for attention — or if he’s actually a crazy person. No one inside the Chick-Fil-A seemed to share his excitement.

The self-proclaimed social media stuntman claims his social media escapades are genuine, and told NBC South Florida that he’s doing it for, “reactions.”

One thing is for sure, if he really is stealing all the things he claims to be running off with on Instagram, there’s insurmountable video evidence to hold against him in the court of law.

Enjoy your milkshakes while you can, dude.

The 13 Most Extravagant Chocolate Milkshakes Around the World

Milkshakes are one of America’s most classic and beloved desserts, and it just doesn’t get more original than a chocolate milkshake. It’s 2017, and outrageously excessive decadence is the name of the game. So accordingly, your once classic milkshake has morphed into an extravagant treat, overflowing with sugary indulgences. The chocolate milkshakes that you are about to see are not your typical milkshakes. They are something truly special and equally delicious. Some are topped with a donut, or a slice of cake, and some are topped with a lollipop. And some are topped with ALL of these treats! The over the top shakes also go by the name “freakshakes” and they are popping up in restaurants, burger joints, and bakeries everywhere. In honor of National Chocolate Milkshake Day, I present to you 13 of the most extravagant looking and accordingly scrumptious chocolate milkshakes from around the world. Enjoy!

 

1. Patissez, Canberra, Australia

A post shared by Pâtissez™ (@patissez) on

Patissez claims to be the home of the true and original freakshake. They say it all started because they wanted to take the “humble milkshake” and make it into something special, and something special it is. Patissez focuses on ensuring that ingredients aren’t just thrown on for frills, but that they actually work together to compliment each other. With 15 different monster milkshakes to choose from, “The Sneaky Freaky,” is quite the spectacle and towers high with all sorts of Snicker-ey goodness. It features a caramel chocolate shake, a massive dollop of chocolate mousse, and a Snickers s’mores pop. I know, you’re wondering what a Snickers s’more pop is. Well I’m about to tell you! A Snickers s’more pop consists one of those divine Snickers ice cream bars, dipped in chocolate, and rolled in freshly torched marshmallow. Jaw-dropping.

 

2. Black Tap, New York City, New York

Black Tap is located in New York’s trendy SoHo neighborhood, and has arguably accomplished a record height for a milkshake. What we have here is a Doughnut Oreo Chocolate Milkshake with candy coated Oreos, massive malt balls, AND a rainbow sprinkle glazed donut. There is no such thing as too much in this milkshake game which is why the addition of a full-sized doughnut seems completely necessary! Served in a classic milkshake glass with a retro stainless steel holder, the presentation adds a fun and nostalgic feel to the sweet experience. You can hardly even see the actual milkshake underneath all the layers of chocolatey toppings!

 

3. GD Bro Burger, Santa Ana, California

A decadent s’mores chocolate milkshake from GD Bro Burger in Santa Ana, California debuted recently and it includes a skewer stacked with perfectly roasted marshmallows, Hershey’s milk chocolate pieces, and a graham cracker. It’s practically a campfire in a glass and it calls for not one, but two straws. It would be a miracle if you still had room for dessert after enjoying a meal here because they serve some wildly rich items including something called “pizza tots,” (tater tots with sauce, cheese, and pepperoni piled on top) as well as burgers with fried mozzarella sticks inside! But there’s always room for dessert, right? Yes, the answer is yes.

 

4. The Great British Cupcakery, Newcastle, United Kingdom

A post shared by Rhea Rabot🐰 (@_rabxt) on

In the up and coming Quayside area of Newcastle, The Great British Cupcakery is a bakehouse and parlour that creates remarkable cakes for every one of life’s special moments. They’ve also created quite an elegant chocolate milkshake that features a chocolate sprinkle doughnut resting quaintly atop the most perfect swirl of whipped cream I’ve ever seen. Rainbow sprinkles on more chocolate adorn the jar itself, because this shake clearly needed more chocolate. Each milkshake sits on a proper tea saucer, for fanciness of course!

 

5. Naughty Boy Cafe, Melbourne, Australia

Naughty Boy has these shakes on their menu under a category called “Instashakes,” and that’s exactly what they are – shakes that are Insta-worthy. Pictured here is “Chocolate and Nutella Fudge,” which has a chocolate fudge brownie, white chocolate mousse, Nutella, and freeze dried fruits. The location also serves “Traditional Milkshakes,” but we’ve already crossed over. We’re all about the “Instashakes” now. There’s no going back!

 

6. The Benjamins, Singapore

A post shared by TERRY (@terrylee_) on

A cookies and cream chocolate milkshake to satisfy your wildest Oreo dreams! With a slice of cookies ‘n cream cake, chocolate wafer sticks, plenty of Oreos, and chocolate sauce pouring over the top, $16 is your ticket to this stacked Oreo sugar coma. With two straws, they are likely suggesting that you share this one. I’m not sharing, not with you… not with anyone!

 

7. Patty ‘N Bun, The Netherlands

A post shared by Nick Tang (@nickeltang) on

This burger joint has delivered quite the extravagant milkshake. Here lies a chocolate milkshake, with Oreo and a chocolate sprinkle doughnut, which is then crowned with a healthy serving of whipped cream, sprinkles, and a very liberal pour of honey. Honey oozes over its entirety, and the way it coats the Oreos around the top of the jar is quite the spectacle. If you’ve never tried honey on ice cream, I’m suggesting you do that right now. It’s one of the greatest sugary combinations out there. Thank me later!

 

8. Buns Bar, New York City, New York

A post shared by Buns Bar (@bunsbar) on

This Chelsea-area New York bar deserves special recognition simply because of the time and effort that went into decorating the glass. I introduce to you, “Death by Chocolate.” The boozy concoction features “Death by Chocolate Cake” infused with Grand Marnier and orange liqueur. Ribbons of Cap’n Crunch, Fruit Loops, Rice Krispies, and marshmallows plaster the outside of the glass while Kit-Kats and mini Oreos liven up the whipped cream pillow. Creatively utilizing every square inch of canvas, Buns Bar knocks this one out of the park!

 

9. Maxwell’s Bar and Grill, London, United Kingdom

A post shared by Desrotinando (@desrotinando) on

This London spot has freakshakes on the menu, and they don’t even try to put a straw in them. But how could you, with that massive block of Oreo cake perched atop?! Other Instagrammers’ photos reveal that the shakes are served with the straws just stuck to the sides of the stacked whipped cream as if they’re saying “good luck!” Or maybe the point here is that you have to eat the dessert that comes on top of the dessert to get to the actual dessert. What a mouthful.

 

10. Cake Spade, Singapore

A post shared by Diyana Kamal (@lei_dee) on

This Daily Cake Store calls these monster milkshakes, “cake shakes.” Clever, oh so clever! “Mudslide” here, comes piled high with giant toasted jet-puffed marshmallows, a slice of extra fudgey chocolate cake, a cookie, and then more cookies. A mudslide is typically made with chocolate cake, coffee, and whipped topping. Cake Spade has also executed a delicate Oreo crust that perfectly coats the jar of this chocolatey cake shake. “Mudslide” is brilliant as far as milkshake names go, as this is nothing less than a giant chocolatey mudslide.

 

11. Mom’s, New York City, New York

A post shared by #ahungrylife (@ahungrylife) on

This Astoria milkshake haven serves what they call “Big Mouth Shakes.” The particular example here is called “The Fluffleupagus” and the menu assures us that it is “imaginary friend approved.” What you see here are not just any popcorn pieces, they are Cracker Jacks as well as a Reese’s peanut butter cup, marshmallow fluff, and peanut butter chips. A lot of places that serve these outrageous milkshakes don’t have them listed on their menus, but after reading this genius menu description, how could you NOT order “The Fluffleupagus!”

 

12. Muharam Cafe, Melbourne, Australia

A post shared by Muharam (@muharamcafe) on

Melbourne’s Muharam Cafe creates something extra special here. Yes there’s a donut on top of this chocolate shake, but it’s not any donut, it’s a nutella -filled doughnut. They stick an extra wide boba straw through said doughnut for premium sipping, creating an unforgettable chocolate milkshake experience. Those standard soda straws just don’t cut it anymore!

 

13. Lily Bakes Cakes, Glasglow, Scotland

A self-taught Scottish baker makes a towering Oreo milkshake with chocolate syrup, a jelly-filled sugar donut, a waffle, whipped cream, toasted marshmallows, honeycomb, Oreos, a salted caramel “syringe” and sprinkles. Placing something like a syringe on top of a milkshake is a bit wacky, but this one’s filled with salted caramel sauce, so yeah, it’s completely awesome.

McDonald’s Designed A Milkshake ‘STRAW’ That Will Change The Way You Suck

A few weeks ago, McDonald’s announced that they were adding a brand-new line of Shamrock Shake-inspired drinks to their beverage menu. These included a Shamrock Chocolate Chip Frappe, a Chocolate Shamrock Shake, Shamrock Hot Chocolate, and a Shamrock Mocha.

Mcd-Shamrock-Shake-Line

In a recent McDonald’s Facebook Live Stream, the fast food chain announced that they’ve been collaborating with two aerospace and robotic engineering companies (JACE and NK Labs) to elevate the simple straw into a new item they’re appropriately calling the “STRAW.”

The Suction Tube for Reverse Axial Withdrawal (or STRAW) is McDonald’s latest answer to the dual-layered Chocolate Shamrock Shake. It features a “J”-shaped design complete with well-placed holes for your milkshake to enter through.

When McDonald’s dropped their new Chocolate Shamrock Shake, customers would have to mix their beverage together if they wanted a combination of both chocolate and mint flavor. The STRAW’s design allows for both components to be sucked without having to mix the shake up.

Hot damn.

McD-STRAW-Boxed-02

McDonald’s will be giving away 2,000 of these straws to fans across the United States. A list of participating McDonald’s locations that will have the STRAW on Feb. 24 can be found here.

Like last month’s 10,000 exclusive Big Mac Sauce bottles, the STRAWS will be available on a first come, first served, basis.

6 Ways To Ruin A Milkshake

 

 

Most people can agree that milkshakes preside over the non-alcoholic beverage community like the royalty they are. Whether you crave monstrous milkshakes from establishments like New York’s Black Craft Burgers and Beer, or you prefer to keep things simple with local diner fare, however, everyone has their breaking point when it comes to their milkshake. Here are the most common ways your milkshake can be ruined and result in zero boys showing up in your yard.

 

1. Thick Milkshake

Depending on how frivolous the establishment gets with their toppings, an incredibly thick milkshake quickly turns into an ice cream sundae. These milkshakes often come with spoons and, unless ordered as a dessert, no one should need to constantly use a utensil for the beverage when they most likely aren’t even using utensils for their food.

Don’t be a hero; save your lungs and ask for a smoother milkshake.

 

2. Flimsy Straws

Dear server, if you’re going to give me a milkshake thicker than a supermodel’s hair, at least give me more than a coffee straw to inhale it. Maybe you’re out of the big kid straws or maybe you just switched straw providers, but I’m out out of patience and have acquired permanent duck face.

Even if you blessed the table with properly blended (read: liquid) shakes, a cheap straw can quickly cave under the pressure. Please, save lips everywhere from the wrath of a broken straw and get some boba-tea-quality straws. At the very least, use bendy or otherwise festive straws; I’m not ordering a milkshake to feel like an adult.

 

3. Thin Milkshake

Occasionally, people get a little trigger-happy with the blender and you’re presented with a glass of milk. Not only does this concoction just taste like sugary milk, you’re predisposed to drink it too fast. Brain freeze and a sugar rush? Let’s keep that ice cream to milk ratio in check, for all of our sakes.

 

4. A Mountain of Whipped Cream

Regardless of your feelings about whipped cream, its presence atop a milkshake presents a conundrum. Do you eat your way through to get to the shake or do you let it gradually mix into the shake as you drink it, slowly forming a substantial foam puddle at the bottom of the glass?

Either way, you end up eating far too much whipped cream at one end of your milkshake or not really getting to enjoy any whipped cream at all.

 

5. Milk

For lactose intolerant people, milkshakes are at the direct intersection of a diet cheat day and a mild food allergy. Tempting yet dangerous, these otherwise innocuous beverages have been the downfall of many poor souls.

 

6. No Extra Tin

No matter how large of a milkshake your server sets down in front of you, you’re always going to feel cheated if you don’t get the metal tin with the extra shake from the blender. It may not be a full shake, but it feels like an extra shake. What kind of monster would take that away from us?

Burger King Rocks New PUMPKIN SPICE OREO Shake

BK Pumpkin Spice Shake

Because it seems every fast food place needs some kind of pumpkin dish for the fall, Burger King has added a new Pumpkin Spice Oreo Shake to its menu.

Brand Eating reports that the limited-time item boasts a pumpkin spice syrup that’s blended with an Oreo Shake. Unfortunately, that means there’s no real pumpkins in the beverage. Though I’m sure we’ll find a way to enjoy a fast food shake without actual pumpkins.

Patrons can find the shake priced $2.59 for a small 12-oz. The Pumpkin Spice Oreo Shake will be available at all participating Burger King locations thorough the fall.

Hopefully, it won’t turn our poop orange.
