Milkshake Madness?

Well team, it's been a while.  After the controversy that my last blog post stirred up I didn't know if I'd be back.  It was tough to deal with some adversity but that adversity is what makes the good great so I'm back again with three new milkshakes.

Since it is March I thought about doing a milkshake blog bracket, in which the fans could decide what the best milkshake was, but after the way the 2nd round turned out, and my actual NCAA Tournament bracket looks, I'm a little sick of seeing brackets so instead I'm going to tell you all where these milkshakes rank because it is my blog.

The first one on the docket is orange push-up pop.

I'm not going to lie.  It had been so long since I had it, I would regularly forget what milkshake this was which is a shame.  This thing is straight up magic.  It tastes like a cream sickle popsicle.  The name might be a little off, but the taste is wonderful.

Taste- 10/10 perfect.

Consistency- Nothing to complain about this was just ice cream, nothing was mixed together really. 10/10.

Overall- 10/10 if we were doing a bracket this would be a #1 seed in the fruit region.

Next up we have mint Oreo.

This was weird.  It tasted fine although the consistency was not great, but this was not green.  I had mint chocolate chip and the ice cream was green, but here it was white.  It was fake mint ice cream, which kind of hurt my feelings honestly and it honestly affected the taste.

Taste- 9/10- don't try to pull a fast one on me Cookout.

Consistency- 9/10- honestly the chocolate chip was better and honestly I'm shocked that I'm saying that.

Overall- 9/10.  This was a case where I got my hopes up and the milkshake could not deliver which is unfortunate.

Lastly, we have Snickers.

I'm going to preface this by saying I'm not a huge fan of Snickers.  I'll eat them and I like them but I don't think they are anything special.  I'm going to add that I don't think they should be in milkshakes.  When they are blended up, they form uneven strange pieces that don't taste the same across the board.  I don't like the caramel mix without chocolate and the pieces are different sizes it is weird.

Taste- 8/10- It was just vanilla ice cream with pieces of Snickers.  It tasted alright.  If the Snickers were more consistent it might have tasted better.

Consistency- 8/10- Mostly due to the unevenness of the Snickers.

Overall- 8/10.  Snickers are alright, ice cream is good but when blended up and mixed together it leaves a little to be desired.

Until next time team, keep supporting.  I hope to knock out a few more before the year is over.  We can do this.
