Not very fond of strawberries (unless they are Korean strawberries) but I like strawberry milkshake. Alot.
I still remember those days when going to McDonald’s for a happy meal meant having a strawberry milkshake, French fries and a cheeseburger (without the pickles, of course) – in descending order of importance.
For some reason unknown to me, McDonald’s stopped selling milkshakes and I felt a huge, crushing loss. One day many years later, McDonald’s put milkshakes back on their menu but my happiness was shortlived. The strawberry milkshake just did not taste the same as before.
A few people recommended Billy Bomber’s strawberry milkshake and I tried. It turned out to be a lemon! Thin and tasteless.
Anyway, Relish came along and I rediscovered the joys of sipping a delicious strawberry milkshake. Served in a tall glass, Relish’s milkshake is thick, creamy and robust with small chunks of strawberries added to give some bite. I have no idea how they make this – and I am not sure I want to know – but I am sure a glass of this pink concoction pretty much maxes out my permissible calorie intake for the day.
Recently, we have been frequenting Once Upon A Milkshake, an ice-cream and milkshake parlour at Maxwell Chambers. I like this place. The whole set-up, in a purple-and-white theme, is very charming and quaint.
I am addicted to their strawberry milkshake, which is homemade strawberry ice-cream blended with low-fat milk. It is everything yummy without making one feel je-lak.
Have not tried any other flavours yet. And I doubt I will get around to doing so anytime soon.
