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.
December’s Milkshake Madness flavors were, appropriately enough, Holiday themed. The votes have been counted, and in a tight race Eggnog has been named the best holiday shake! Candy Cane came in a close second, while Gingerbread turned in a rather lackluster performance. Eggnog earns the distinction of January’s Milkshake of the Month – and the first milkshake in the 2016 Meeple Madness Challenge!
I don’t know about you, but the holidays around here bring with them trays and trays of baked goods: cookies, cakes, muffins, and of course more cookies. So to keep the holidays alive a bit longer, January’s trio of shakes will be baking themed. Stop in throughout January and try out the Oatmeal Cookie shake, the Butterscotch Cookie shake, and the Blueberry Muffin shake!
Be sure to vote for your favorite shake and help us choose February’s Milkshake of the Month!
