BK Cupcake Milkshake
So my wife graciously went out to get me a fountain diet Coke from Burger King up the road (I am a horrible diet Coke addict). Knowing my penchant for strange fast food items she came home with the above pictured "Cupcake Milkshake," she knows me well. I could not find the cupcake shake on the official BK website, so perhaps it is a test item or in limited release. I don't know.
As you can see in the picture it has a whipped cream like substance on the top. Presumably, this is to imitate the frosting of a cupcake. Actually, the stuff tastes very much like cheap frosting. I liken it to the stuff you find on top of ice cream cakes. As for the shake, it was your standard over sweetened, artificial "cake batter" -esque flavored junk. This seems to be a very popular fad flavor in cheap iced cream lately, I don't really like it. I was not wowed by the shake, it is not good enough to offset the probably atrocious caloric weight. Of more interest to me than the shake was the following.
**Note** As usual this fast food review is laden with gutter mouth and potty humor, adults only (why do my fast food reviews always degenerate into vulgarity?)**Note**
Instead of a straw you get a extra thick "BK Pipe" from "Have It Your Way Technologies." This led to me making about 200 low brow, vulgar innuendos of the sort that I am sure you can imagine (you know smoking pipe, etc...). I told my wife that her mom is known to be able to suck a cupcake through a BK pipe in an ode to the classic "golf ball through a garden hose" line.
