Whenever I think about milkshakes, my first reaction is to burst out singing “My milkshake brings all the boys to the yard”, Kelis’ 2003 hit, “Milkshake”.
The famous shake has been around since 1885. In my Grandparents era (the 50’s), children would save their pocket money to buy a delicious, creamy, syrupy, ice-cold milkshake from their local Milk Bar. Indulging in a milkshake at the Milk Bar was the cool thing to do.
In fact, milkshakes are still a “thing”, and are becoming more and more popular. Cafés are reinventing the traditional flavours of Vanilla, Chocolate and Strawberry, bringing in their own crazy flavours, making them just as popular amongst adults as they are with the kiddies …. I know I’m partial to a milkshake.
For many, the milkshake is a reminder of summer, youth and indulgence. So with summer on its way, I want to know where can Canberra’s best milkshake be found?
