BK Pumpkin Spice Oreo Shake
Well, they certainly nailed the presentation. I like the fact the cup even has brown and orange highlights. In fact, I was so busy staring at the shake (and so bored from waiting several minutes for it to be made), that I totally missed the fact that they forgot to hand me a straw. I tried drinking it from the top, but before I make a mess or cut my lip, just give me a sec to run in to McDonald's and steal a straw.
Alright, I'm back in action and this shake... is pretty decent actually. They've gone a bit heavy handed with the spices, but not distressingly so. It's not worst of the worst here so that's a positive. I would like a bit more pumpkin flavor and a cut in the spices, and then we'd really be in business.
The Oreo bits? Sure, they clog the straw on occasion, and you won't taste them directly, there's no blast of Oreo flavor, but I feel like they are taking the edge off the spice blend, and that's a positive. I know BK is kind of on an Oreo kick right now, and that's fine, but it's a shame we couldn't go graham crumbs instead in hopes of achieving more of a familiar flavor balance... though on the flip side, you want companies to try to be different from the standard fall offerings. So maybe I don't really have a point then.
Anyway, so yeah, I enjoyed it. I didn't love it mind you, I'm a bit too much of a purest when it comes to these thin fast food shakes, but I have no problem saying give it a try it it peaks your interest. It's definitely way better than their Red Velvet Oreo shake.
Buy Again? maybe
