What do you guys think of this apparent new trend in dessert of everyone making ridiculous milkshakes? Supposedly this is the new "cronut".
I personally love milkshakes but I'm always skeptical as to these over the top foods as often they look prettier than they look. Need to see if there's a place in my city that does them like pic related and try it out.
You can tellt his is a piece of shit trend because they're putting the shakes in Mason jars.
The way the top of the jar is shaped prevents you from being able to easily get the last bits of the shake out, including the delicious bits of whatever have sunk to the bottom. It's harder to get a spoon in there, the fluid sticks around the lip, and all in all it's just a piece of shit thing to do.
You'd have to be a pretty fat fuck to eat/drink a whole shake like that in one sitting.
It would never catch on with the health-conscious "in" crowd, and you just know one of those fuckers costs $10.
they're the perfect size to share with someone else though, id get it at least once because it looks like a fun novelty
the only thing is the outside of the mug would get sticky and make your hands dirty as well
OP here, I meant to say they look prettier than they taste.
Lol, I'm not a fan of mason jar food either. The worst actually is pulled pork dinner in a mason jar, fuck those people who came up with that.
I think it's part of the "experience". I have a bit of ocd when it comes to messy food though haha.
I thought so too but then I just assumed that they are meant to be shared. But to be honest those mason jars probably aren't as big as you think they are.
so you want a large milkshake for two
those pictured LOOK fine, but due to the mason jar shape not only are you going to have difficulty getting everything out there will be a severe lack of topping/extra once you get past the top bit
just look at the far right one, you have to eat an entire brownie+icecream and what looks like a marshmallow before you even get to the milkshake
else risk having it all slide off due to the small nature of the jar neck
a true over the top milkshake should be fucking thick, like thick enough you need a spoon for the first half before it starts to melt some
it should have mix-ins, candies/chocolate are always nice
it should have some form of sauce mixed in and topping, caramel/chocolate/strawberry
it should be served in a wide topped milkshake glass, I guess that's too "common" for these so just make it bigger and decorate it or something
it should be topped with at least two of the following; whipped cream, cookie(any variety), brownie, mallow, fresh fruit, whatever stupid pastry of the month is popular you hipster faggot
basically, make whatever the most expensive DQ or similar chain shake and serve it in a 40oz glass container with some shit on top and charge $15-20 for it
Sounds unhealthy as fuck, not to mention most of these people probably do the
>buy a bunch of premade stuff
>mix it in a blender
dessert making method
you can gauge the size from the pretzels, it's probably around 3-4 cups of goop in each of those cups
Tell you why I need more? Because that's my preference, Stan Laurel.
Their whole appeal is looking decadent
> OMG OVERFLOWING WITH DESSERT!
It's just a shitload of sugar dumped on top of a meme jar filled with a milkshake. No one ever did it before because it's fucking stupid.
At least a cronut is an ok treat once in a while. Basically a donut. It's not served in vintage bowler filled with whipped cream.
Mason jars are aesthetic but not really practical when it comes to stuff like this. Anyone know similar products with the whole jar being of the same width? I'm looking for a jar where I can put my delicious overnight oats in.
>inb4 any fucking jar
It has to be beautiful. It enhances the taste of the oats.
Some jamming jars have the same width from top to bottom.
If those were put in more traditional glasses and had better presentation, I could see the appeal of ridiculously awesome/bad milkshakes. But going for Mason Jars is just lazy and it's a pain in the ass to try and eat it without looking like more of a glutton than you probably are for ordering one.
Get the box the lynchburg lemonade is in
i agree, this seems like a problematic presentation. i dont want to try and eat a brownie balanced on top of a jar with whipped cream.
I love me a good milk shake though. I prefer to make it myself, since getting commercial grass fed dairy ice cream is a far away dream. Also, pic related.
Aladdin Classic Mason Salad Jar 34oz, Marina is another one you can search on amazon for if you are making multi-portions. I also source jars by going to the pickle section and looking for a jar of shitty pickles in a jar with the right shape
A Milkshake is a clean drink. If I order one at McDonald's it'll come with Whipped Cream on top and a Cherry on top for garnish.
That mess in OP's picture is an abomination of a Sundae. You drink a milkshake not EAT it, that's why it's called a shake.
Gender still doesn't matter. Men also have caloric limits, whether they're higher or lower than that of women's.
As a human, one should never order one of those, unless one is splitting it with multiple people.
I have a term for this /ck/. I call it "buzzfood" like a buzzword, for food and because the site Buzzfeed seems to love posting this type of thing. Something that sounds a lot better than it actually tastes, usually it involves trendy popular food.
>BACON WRAPPED BROWNIES!
>Dumb normie: "Derp I like bacon! I like brownies! THIS! IS! THE! BEST! THING! EVER!"
Nevermind the fact that those two things would taste like shit together and do. Who wants a mouth full of gooey chocolate and grease? Basically the people aren't really thinking it through it seems.
Another thing about buzzfood is it's not practical to make. The person making it usually has a lot more skill and the person following the social media of the person making it thinks they just attempt it and nail for the first try.
Hence all the pin interest failures.
as a man, i can tell you that you're fucking stupid and you can't spell for dick. hop on over to /fit/ and learn how nutrition works (read the sticky), and, as a woman, why don't you go ahead and fuck all that clear-cut info up and learn nothing.
I'm going to have to agree. Those of you saying "who cares" are simply consumer whores and hate things getting in the way of them spending money, things like receiving a good product or anything in return.
I think these would be a lot better if all the extra stuff wasn't just jammed in there
Like, if the milkshake was served and then all the extra stuff came in a little paper satchel to the side of it
That way you could easily dip all the stuff in there without it already overflowing or just eat it separately because half of the people who order that shit just take it off and eat it first anyway
>all that fucking drip on the outside of the jars
>it was done on purpose
Who the fuck came up with this? please tell me if this is a west coast or east coast thing because it is extremely fucking retarded. I'm guessing west coast
why are we in an arms race with ourselves to destroy our tastebuds?
you need to rethink something if you need double triple meaty cheese bacon burgers or these monstrous milkshakes
what's wrong with enjoying a bit of flavor?
it's like drug addicts needing bigger and bigger hits to feel anything
