the Krispy Kreme milkshake

Standard

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?

  1. I looked at the menu for the Flip Burger Boutique, because I’m all about cheeseburgers, and they really do have some weird “burgers”. One is called “raw steak tartare” — made with filet mignon and egg, which has potential, but the use of the term raw would scare me off.

    Also under burgers is a “raw tuna tartare”, which has mango sphere, avocado puree, soy jellies, compressed vegetables, wasabi mayo, and sesame crispies. I’m pretty sure that does not qualify as a burger. That sounds like some crazy health-food salad between bread.

  2. Hey, thanks for the link. And yes, Thomas, they have some weird burgers there. If you do ever find yourself at Flip, I recommend the chorizo burger. And they rotate their milkshakes, so the Krispy Kreme milkshake isn’t permanent on the menu. So call ahead! And good luck! 🙂
