I heard that there’s a restaurant that created a Krispy Kreme milkshake. If you’ve ever had a fresh Krispy Kreme donut (doughnut), your mind has probably already concluded this might be one of the best milkshakes ever. I wouldn’t be surprised if someone has already left for the store to get donuts to put in your blender.
This Krispy Kreme milkshake is made from two donuts added to a blender with a vanilla milkshake. How could that not be awesome?
I found a review of the Krispy Kreme milkshake, and the author said he couldn’t finish it because the sugar rush was “formidable”. I can imagine it being quite rich, but I’ve never met a dessert I couldn’t conquer.
It looks like the inventor of this is the Flip Burger Boutique in Atlanta, GA. The menu looks like a gourmet place, with “burgers” costing between $7 and $21, without a side. (I say “burgers” because some of theirs don’t even have beef. In most circles those items would be called sandwiches.) It seems like an odd fit because the restaurant appears to feature only fancy novelty type foodstuffs. While a donut milkshake is quite the novelty, it doesn’t seem as “sophisticated” as the rest of their sides.
If I find myself in Atlanta, I hope to try one, solely for research purposes, of course. 🙂
FYI, while researching this story, I saw a news article saying Krispy Kreme had created their own frozen beverages a few years ago, which were effectively a drinkable version of their doughnuts. I’ve been in a few Krispy Kreme stores and never noticed this, so perhaps they didn’t stay around. In a way I can see that — while it would surely be great tasting, when you’re in a Krispy Kreme store and can get hot doughnuts that melt in your mouth, why would you pass on that?
