It was mostly white before in went in the mixer....
Oh so very very red.... and did they forget my Oreo bits??? For the love of Pete! Uggg, I think they did! Oh well, let's review it anyway because while it may not be a completely fair test, let's be honest, we all want to know what the red velvet syrup really adds besides a ton o' food coloring.
Here goes: It tastes like red velvet. like. a lot. Kind of in your face, not sure it's real, why did I buy this again type red velvet. Maybe the Oreo bits would have helped balance things, but the problem is, it's strong. It's not deathly strong, but it loses it's mystique quickly. It's red velvet, not red velvet cake or red velvet cheese frosting, it's red velvet. Well, food science red velvet anyway.
The underlying problem is that the regular Oreo shake isn't that good to begin with. The texture isn't very good, it's not very cold, and it just feels far removed from what a real awesome cookies & cream shake should taste like. It wasn't horrible, and I wasn't spitting it out, it just was meh.
Now if you adore a strong red velvet taste, and you don't mind BK shakes in general, you'll probably be fine, but if you were thinking about rushing out to try one, I would say don't rush too hard. I didn't even finish mine.
Verdict? very very red. tolerable at best.
Buy Again? nope
Note: @evilpez4 told us about the new McDonald's Canada Red Velvet Oreo McFlurry. I can only assume that it's got to be way better..... Update, the answer is no, it's not better. While being very red, the mcflurry is surprisingly very boring. Oh well.... wait, one more pic.
