Nerdvana: Milkshake it Up!
Yeah, I know; we’re about two-thirds of the way through the month and this is only the first blog post of September. We’re lagging behind, I realize, but it couldn’t be helped: we have other non-Twinsanity related creative projects that have been taking up our time, plus things are pretty crazy in real life right now; we keep getting distracted by stupid stuff. Bear in mind also that this is just a 2-man operation; we don’t have a staff we can assign things to, it’s just us doing everything, so we can only get these things out when we’re able to.
There are more major posts on the way: some more Cartoon Countries, a couple of Toon Adjacents, we’re going to finish up the current installments of Pop Dream and What The Funny and start the next entries of each, plus a Videots which I first teased back in March (!). If all goes according to plan, this upcoming crop of blog posts will be the last written blog entries before we make the transition to video production, which will hopefully begin in 2018, if there are no further distractions or delays. Thanks for sticking with us, and in the meantime, enjoy this bit o’ nonsense.
Today Nerdvana looks at one of my favorite subjects…milkshakes.
Specifically, we’ll be throwing the spotlight on some of the craziest milkshakes in the U.S., according to Delish.com. These insane concoctions are all on my bucket list; I plan to try each of these before I die (and with all that dairy and sugar, I’ll at least be guaranteed to go with a smile on my face):
PEANUT BUTTER CUP SHAKE, Volcano Shakes, Honolulu, Hawaii
This bad boy is is made with chocolate-peanut butter ice cream, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, and Reese’s Pieces. Hey, you’ve got chocolate in my peanut butter, peanut butter in my chocolate, both in my shake, and some on my shirt.
STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKE FRAPPE, Boston Burger Company, Somerville, Massechusets
This one’s got vanilla ice cream, shortcake, strawberry jam and, wait for it…Twizzlers!
THE FAT BOY BAM-BOOZLED SHAKE, Holsteins Shakes and Buns, Bam-Boozled Shakes, Las Vegas, Nevada
In addition to having one of THE most memorable names imaginable, this shake is made with UV Candy Bar vodka, Reese’s, pretzels, sprinkles, Cap’n Crunch, Oreos, and Butterfingers.
SWEET N’ SALTY MILKSHAKE, Black Tap Craft Burgers & Beer, New York, New York
Chocolate. M&Ms. Mini Reese’s Cup. Pretzels. This thing is a Beast. Mutant and Proud.
BIRTHDAY CAKE SHAKE, Burgatory, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
Sidebar: I love the name Burgatory. This one’s made with house-turned vanilla bean ice cream, yellow cake, and tons of rainbow sprinkles. You can never have too many sprinkles.
NUTELLA AND CHOCOLATE PRETZEL SHAKE, Hopdoddy Burger Bar, Addison, Texas
A combination of vanilla ice cream, chocolate-covered pretzels, and a Nutella swirl. I’ve had Nutella, I like Nutella (though I think Hershey’s and Reese’s chocolate spreads are a little better, just sayin’), but I’ve never had Nutella in a shake, so now I have a mission to accomplish: get thing down my gullet!
-So there you have it. Some of the liquid treats I’ve been grooving on lately.
