MolliCoolz Shakers Chocolate Milkshake

shakers.jpgI was in the ice cream isle of the supermaket, looking for a tasty treat to take home. I was in the mood for something different, something other than just ice cream. I almost grabbed a box of It’s-Its, but a new product caught my eye. It was Shakers, an instant milkshake mix. You simply pour milk into the container and shake it for 30 seconds. The milk mixes with ice cream beads and creates a milkshake. What a great idea! “But, can it really be that good?” I asked myself. The label stated that the finished milkshake was “unbelievably delicious,” “deliciously thick and creamy,” and “the best shake you’ve ever had,” which convinced me to by it. What a bunch of lies. Shakers wins the award for the worst tasting product that I’ve eaten as a Phoood reviewer. It isn’t thick, creamy, delicious, or the best shake I’ve ever had. In fact, it is, without equivocation, the worst milkshake that I’ve ever had. Adding milk and shaking for 30 seconds as directed only made an icy glob of lumpy chocolate ice cream floating in some frothy, chocolate-flavored milk. And what a nasty chocolate flavor! Where do they buy their cocoa, at the Galt Flea Market? I’ve never tasted a chocolate flavor this disgusting. I could only choke down part of the “milkshake” before I threw the rest away. Typically, I hate seeing food go to waste and almost never throw food away, but in the case of Shakers the garbage can is where it belongs.

I should have bought the It’s-Its…

Thank you! I'd been craving a milkshake all evening.

Just the thought of this has put me right off it.

My waistline thanks you!

I seriously think no one on this site has tastebuds.

Just get a different flavor and shake it longer and harder than 30 seconds. Use your muscles. This always helps me when I have this.

Now that I think about it, do you remember the "Microwave Milkshake?" They came out for a short while back in the early 90's. Basically it was just Ice Cream that you nuked until it was half-melted. Didn't go over very well at all. I did like microwave french fries, though.

I totally agree with this review. An icy glob is the best way to describe it!

Ed - I remember the microwave milkshakes, I would say those were better than this crap!
