Arby's Pumpkin Cheesecake Shake
  and the Nosh Show Episode 66

One, the OEM battery on my wife's car didn't make it past the four year mark. Two, whoever designed the battery holder on her car should have their engineering degree revoked. Three, episode 66 of the Nosh Show is here! Four, as my reward for fixing the car, I grabbed the new...

Arby's Pumpkin Cheesecake Shake
a (supposed) combo of pumpkin, cheesecake, and pie crust

Also available on iTunesStitcher, and MP3

So while our twitter bud @evilpez4 was not a fan of this new shake, I still felt compelled to try it with lowered expectations and the knowledge that I should be able to pawn this one off on my wife if I don't like it. Well, sipping is complete and it's wasn't terrible. It's very strong on the cheese factor, I'd say 70/30 cheese to pumpkin ratio at best, and it is indeed very sweet, and it's not very thick, but it was cold and I was hungry, so more or less I enjoyed it.

I say give it a try if it interests you, but I will give this disclaimer. I just assumed this was some kind of balanced shake mix directly from the factory, but I'm not sure. I had the first (cheesy) half of the shake and then passed the rest to my wife who noticed more pumpkin flavor than I did. That said, neither of us noticed any pie crust bits (though it's a distinct possibility they ran out).

Oh, and don't forget to listen to episode 66 of the Nosh Show and please let us know what you think. There's several new things to recap and it kind of ends on a fun note as Marvo's nosh of the week turns in to my not of the week. I hope you enjoy it, and as always, have a good week!

Verdict?  potent but decent
Buy Again?  if the Mrs. wants to split another one

Note: Shake has returned for 2016
