MOOYAH Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Milkshake

Hey, guess who I saw today? Nick! He drives back and forth a bunch between New York and Maine these days, but his passing by doesn't always line up with the chance for us to catch up for a bit. Well, I told him next time things line up, I would buy him a birthday burger and shake at Mooyah (which I've been meaning to try but I hate going in to new places by myself).

(vanilla ice cream and Reese's peanut butter cups)

You see that giant straw in that picture? Yeah, I still couldn't get the milkshake to go up it. Don't get me wrong, I love a hearty milkshake, but this thing was kind of ridiculous. We basically didn't even get to try these until after we had eaten our burgers (which I thought were very good by the way).

And this picture is incase you don't believe me on how thick this shake was. I held it upside down for a good 20-30 seconds and nothing happened. When I did finally get to drinking it, yes, it was good, but I hated waiting. You can tell that they use a more mainstream (generic) ice cream unlike smashburger who uses Haagen-Dazs (tasty example). I feel like they are trying to make the milkshake super thick to be kitchy kool, but no real scoop shop would server something this thick. It's just impractical.

Oh, speaking of impractical, don't get a large because at this thickness you'll probably not finish it (or if you do get a large, share it). Nick went with the much more sensible smaller size which is what I should have done (granted it's only a dollar difference if I remember right).

Anyway, it was good to see Nick and it was good to finally try Mooyah. I'll definitely head back again to grab another tasty burger but also to verify if the shakes are always this thick (maybe ours were just made wrong, though then why would we get the gigantic straws that could probably suck up a dime).

side note: the speciality menus were on the side of the counter rather than up front where we could see them, so we didn't try anything new or seasonal.

Verdict?  so very thick
Buy Again?  for verification purposes

I feel the same way about Mooyah shakes as I feel about CookOut shakes. They are ridiculously thick. I prefer drugstore thin milkshakes because I want a drink to accompany my burger. Honestly, these shakes are more like Wendy's frostys that require a spoon. You might as well be eating softserve ice cream because they are that thick. If I want a milkshake, it's because I want something to drink WITH my meal. If I wanted something after my meal, I'd order ice cream as dessert. However, the taste is good. I've had the Mooyah mint chocolate chip shake, and I enjoyed the taste. Happy birthday to Nick!
