December Milkshake Madness

December Milkshake Madness


You’ve heard of beer tastings, but have you ever heard of a Milkshake Tasting? We have! Here at Northeast Ohio’s first board game cafe we host a month long milkshake tasting every month – we call it Milkshake Madness!

Every month we here at The Malted Meeple create three new experimental milkshake flavors, typically connected in a unifying milkshake theme for the month. Every Sunday (and during the week if you ask nicely!) we offer a flight of these themed milkshakes to our guests, who then get to vote on their favorite. At the end of the month, one lucky shake becomes the next month’s Milkshake of the Month, while the others are retired in disgrace.

In keeping with our month long celebration of all things Star Wars, November’s Milkshake Madness flavors were from a galaxy far, far away. The votes have been counted, and the Coconut Hutt has emerged as the victor. The Emerald Ewok and Tuskan Terror turned in respectful performances, virtually tying for second place. While the Coconut Hutt has earned the distinction of December’s Milkshake of the Month, all three will join the Dagobah Swamp, Tatooine Twist and Hoth Heater in our permanent lineup of Star Wars milkshakes.

December’s trio of shakes, in what is sure to be a surprise to absolutely no one, are Christmas themed! Stop in throughout December and try out the Candy Cane shake, the Gingerbread shake, and my favorite, the Eggnog shake!

Be sure to vote for your favorite shake and help us choose January’s Milkshake of the Month!
