So these ‘Insta-shakes’ (Instagram-worthy milkshakes) were quite popular around this time last year, and yet, I am always late to the party. I’ve recently joined the band wagon of getting a hold of these crazy shakes and I gotta tell you something, they are pricey! For a glass of milk, flavouring, a couple of sprinkles here and there and maybe possibly a donut on top for decoration… is it really worth it the price of AUD$9-12 per shake?
On the left we have: Golden Gay Time Shake and on the right we have: Nut-tellin’ Doughnut Shake.
Yes, it’s very aesthetically pleasing… but, to be frank, it wasn’t as good as I thought it would be. Sorry to disappoint! I guess my expectation for these spectacular looking shakes were way way too high over the clouds. But overall, the flavour was sort of there, the doughnut was surprisingly good – lots of nutella, however, the ice cream cone didn’t contain any Golden Gay Time ice cream, it was just full of whipped cream – that was a huge let down. Apart from that, the shake itself was way too watered down, but if you are hoping for a thick, creamy and dense milkshake, this isn’t the place for you. But I have to admit that it does look good on camera!
