Simple, sweet, and delectable, chocolate milkshakes aren’t just one of the best treats of all time, they’re also a reminder of our innocence and a symbol of summers gone by. Remember back when all you wanted to do on a weekend was get to a cafe that served you French Fries and some cold milkshakes?
A milkshake (sometimes simply called a shake) is a sweet beverage made by blending milk, ice cream, and flavorings or sweeteners such as butterscotch, caramel sauce, chocolate syrup, fruit syrup, or whole fruit into a thick, sweet, cold mixture. It may also be made using a base made from non-dairy products, including plant milks such as almond milk, coconut milk, or soy milk. Milkshakes originated in the United States around the turn of the 20th century, and grew in popularity following the introduction of electric blenders in the subsequent two decades.
It’s a current consensus that the best milkshake you can get in Kochi is from the Thick Shake Factory on MG Road, inside Center Mall, Cold Stone Creamery (Panampilly Nagar & Lulu Mall), Frozen Bottle, Milano, Baskin & Robbins & The Chocolate Room in no particular order. I have had a few good chocolate milkshakes from Caravan, Cocoa Tree etc but I think those are just about ok compared to the newer outlets that concentrate on making the thickest shakes you have ever seen with all sorts of crazy combinations.
