Milkshake Madness: A Tournament of Toppings

Milkshake Madness: A Tournament of Toppings

Mar 19, 2019

In the grand tournament of milkshake toppings, who are the last sweets standing? We rounded up all of our favorite additions to try and decipher what makes the best milkshake using one delicious bracket. Whether you’re making them at home or trying them at one of our favorite spots, we wish you a mad march filled with ice cream. Who are you rooting for?

a bracket of ice cream toppings and flavors

Where to Get ‘Em

4 milkshakes from bub city

Milkshakes & Boozy Milkshakes – we recommend adding dark rum or bourbon! Flavors can include: Cookies n’ Cream with cream cheese frosting and Oreos rim, Strawberry with cream cheese frosting and fresh and dried strawberries rim, and Peanut butter with chocolate and peanut butter brittle rim from Bub City in Rosemont

Minty Milkshake

March’s Shake of the Month is the Minty Leprechaun – made with creamy vanilla ice cream and crushed mint chocolates at all M Burger locations

milkshakes from RJ GruntsMilkshakes & Malts – Choose between vanilla, chocolate, strawberry, pineapple, coconut, raspberry, banana, oreo cookie, homemade creamy caramel, real peanut butter, fresh brewed coffee, or dreamsicle. Any shake or malt can be spiked with your choice of booze for a Big Kids Shake. Insider Tip: We recommend adding vanilla vodka and Godiva Chocolate Liqueur to vanilla ice cream and fresh strawberries for a sinfully delicious Chocolate-Covered Strawberry Shake from RJ Grunts in Chicago

Mini milkshake from Nacional 27

The Mini-Mexican Milkshake is a shot of chocolate goodness, spiked with kahlúa & cayenne from Nacional 27 in Chicago

Boozy Tres Leches Milkshake with Khalua from Sripburger for march madness

Three Card Monty, tres leches with Kahlua from Stripburger in Las Vegas

Milkshakes not really your thing but you still have a love for ice cream? Well, then you just have to meet Sushi-san’s emochi.
