CRAFT Parkhurst’s decadent milkshakes

Towards the end of last year, CRAFT in Parkhurst, launched a range of the most delicious and decadent milkshakes on the planet. They were originally known as #FreakShakes, which is what these kind of shake master pieces were known as in Australia. Anyway as we all know Local is Lekker…so CRAFT decided to rename them to #OhShakes.

The Flavours:

There are three amazing flavours, which are bound to satisfy any sweet tooth :

The Candy Feast, is layered with creamy iced-cream, Strawberry Bubble-gum candy, love heart sweets, sherbet, candy floss, popping candy & pink caramel. which is all crammed into a decadent Creamy Shake.

Then there will be the Chocolate Overload which is Thick creamy chocolate & white chocolate shake smothered in a hazelnut infused chocolate sauce, topped with Chocolate Ganache, whipped chocolate, roasted. Marshmallows & a silky smooth Belgium white chocolate sauce with sprinkles of even more chocolate.

Lastly there will be a Salted Caramel Delight, Ultra-creamed, ultra-caramelized filled with Crème Brule, topped in a decadent slither of baked cheese cake, a salted caramel disk, sticky caramel filled chocolates and spooned caramel sauce.

My Opinion:

I was lucky enough to be invited to CRAFT to try the #OhShake that took my fancy. Luckily, I bumped into a fellow blogger, Jade from Write Style (check out her blog – it’s awesome). We decided to choose different flavours so we could share. Jade got the Chocolate Overload and I went for the Salted Caramel Delight.

They were both amazing, however, if I was to choose again, I would go for the Chocolate Overload, only because most of the decorations are more edible in my opinion. I struggled to eat any of the sugar work, which looks impressive but just tastes like sugar.

Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to try The Candy Feast…so will need to make a plan to go back for that one 🙂

My only caution is, these #OHShakes are huge! They are definitely a dessert and after a fantastic CRAFT meal, you would probably need to share one.

You don’t want to miss out on experiencing these #OhShakes – they really are delicious, decadent and will have you screaming for more!
