What brings all the boys to the yard?

The milkshake has evolved so much since its birth as just two scoops of ice cream and the standard malted milk!

Today, the city is serving up some of the most extravagant and bizarre creations that will have you asking for a bin or for more!

New York City has some of the greatest stores and eateries so if you like or are curious about the milkshakes here, it is best if you travel here now and treat yourself!

Here’s a list of some of the tastiest milkshakes in town:

1. Black Tap Burger

529 Broome St, New York, NY 10013, USA

What to Try: Any of the CrazyShakes

Black Tap Burger wins every milkshake loving heart with their whimsical and extraordinarily large decorations. These need to be on your Instagram feed, stat! The cotton candy shake is a strawberry milkshake with blue and pink chocolate rims, whipped cream, popping candy, a lollypop and tufts of cotton candy. How enchanting! The Sweet N Salty has a peanut butter base, chocolate and peanut butter rims with pretzel sticks, whipped cream and a salty caramel drizzle.

2. Chick-Fil-A

1180 6th Ave, New York, NY 10036, USA

What to Try: The Peppermint Chocolate Chip Milkshake

Exclusively available during the holiday season, the Peppermint Chocolate Chip Milkshake is literally happiness in a glass! The shake is hand-spun in their usual special way with their infamous ice cream, peppermint, chocolate chips, whipped cream and a cherry on top. Garb it while you can from any of their thousand outlets, it sounds divine!

3. Harlem Shake

100 W 124th St, New York, NY 10027, USA

What to Try: The Red Velvet Shake

Completely opposite of its namesake song, Harlem Shake offers a mean Red Velvet Shake. Its worth every penny and is made from locally sourced ice cream. To make it even better, it’s got real pieces of red velvet and isn’t overly sweet but decadent enough for you to return for another. The simplicity and perfect execution make the Red Velvet Shake a huge success and a must try if you’re in New York.


Some of these are adjacent to the bus station near me. Since I’ve started drinking one of these, my mornings have never been better!
