Fast Food, Steak N Shake

Steak N Shake S’Mores Milkshake

As I have said, food should not be pretentious or out of reach for the general public. So on this blog I’m going to cover things from higher end restaurants like The Spence to fast food places like Whataburger. The Spence is Richard Blaise’s restaurant in atlanta that does some interesting things with molecular gastronomy and some things like General Tso’s tripe.

Before I start this I have to say what a huge s’mores fan I am. It has three of my favorite things, chocolate, marshmallow and graham crackers. A funny side story, I went camping and to the store with my camping mate. I told him we were doing s’mores and he picked up the mini marshmallows and Hershey’s bars. He got a strange look for me and I said” you have never made s’mores have you?” He didn’t understand how half a Hershey’s bar fits on half a graham cracker and how the marshmallow melts the chocolate! He soon learned.

Now if that didn’t make you hungry, I hope this will! I love ice cream and milkshakes. You can never go wrong with a good old fashioned milkshake. However, Steak ‘N Shake, which is known for their milkshakes released a new flavor. They released a s’mores shake! A s’mores desert can either be great or go horribly wrong. The Dairy Queen S’mores Blizzard I didn’t care for, so I hoped this would not be the same type of take on s’mores

The milkshake has chocolate, graham crackers and I would guess marshmallow fluff mixed in with the ice cream. When I first tasted it, I thought it was coconut. But the further I sipped the marshmallow taste came through. Unlike the Dairy Queen Blizzard that had the marshmallow in the chocolate pieces, which stuck me as odd, and I never got the flavor from them. The chocolate was really thick and would make it difficult to use a straw at some points. But mixing it up some fixed the problem.

The shake I had the graham crackers didn’t get too soggy. Granted I drank it pretty fast, if you let it sit they will get a little soggy and loose the nice crunch they have in s’mores. When i got to the bottom of the glass I had to use the spoon to eat the last of the crackers and chocolate.

I really enjoyed the shake and would definitely get it again. It was one of the best they have created at Steak ‘N Shake! I would recommending getting one if you have one near you!
