Late Semester Update

We're back ladies and gentlemen.  I have finished another round of tests which means that its time to update the good ole Cookout blog.  In coming up with this post, I at one point, thought about what kind of milkshakes I would eat for it.  I had decided to go with knocking out the cheesecake shakes for this, with the title called "I hate cheesecake."  I changed my mind though as I'm sure you could tell if you looked at the title.  I really don't like cheesecake guys.  I'm not talking about the Cheesecake Factory where it's covered in chocolate and there is like 2% cheesecake, I'm talking about real cheesecake.  Cookout happens to have 5 different types of cheesecake milkshakes.  This is my nightmare.  So in the end I decided to mix in some cheesecake milkshakes and some that I thought I might actually like.  The results are as follows:


Peanut Butter

The peanut butter milkshake is really weird.  It's just so thick and with nothing to really cut the taste of the peanut butter its almost like eating straight up peanut butter.  There is always some peanut butter at the bottom of the milkshake too.  It kind of works here.  I'm not going to lie I really like it, and the consistency would be weird in some other circumstances but here it does work.


Taste- 10/10- Tastes like some fresh peanut butter.
Consistency- 10/10- What can I say?  It works.
Overall- 10/10- A little bit below some of the other 10/10s but still a solid entry.

Banana

My memories of the banana milkshake are fond but this year it has really dissapointed me this year.  Maybe the bananas aren't as fresh or maybe my memories of the noble banana are just too grand.

Taste- 9/10- It just tastes off somehow.
Consistency- 10/10- The issue isn't here though.
Overall 9/10

Chocolate Chip Cheesecake

I liked this one because it really didn't have much of the cheesecake taste.  The chocolate chips were nice and there weren't any big chunks of cheesecake in it. My only issue was without the strong cheesecake taste it was just vanilla ice cream and chocolate chips.

Taste- 9/10- It was kind of boring honestly although I do appreciate the lack of cheesecake.
Consistency- 10/10 The consistency was fine.
Overall- 9/10 It was a pretty good milkshake.

Strawberry Cheesecake

Even though I stood up for my good friend Strawberry, strawberry cheesecake got it wrong.  It was really thick, like so thick that I couldn't get over how it reminded me some cream of tomato soup or something.  On top of that there were big chunks of cheesecake in it.  This just wasn't for me.

Taste- 8/10- It was good when there was no cheesecake pieces or taste.
Consistency 7/10- It really messed with my mind you all.
Overall 8/10- As far as milkshake experiences go, this one makes you wish you had a different one.
