New York Just Discovered Freakshakes And Everyone Is Going Nuts
Who did it better – Australia or the US?
We all know New Yorkers love their food – so much so that they’re even willing to pay upwards of $100 for a 24-karat gold doughnut. It’s a city known for their pizza, cronuts and epic burgers, but something has just hit Manhattan that’s making New Yorkers squeal with joy. Too bad us Aussies already did it first.
I mean, how do you even begin to eat that!? While they’re a little less, dare I say, classy than their Canberran counterparts, these delectable freakshakes are sweeping the streets of NYC and Instagram is rightly going off.
Black Tap in SOHO is where you’ll find these sugary delights – funnily enough desserts aren’t really known as their forte. It’s primarily a hamburger restaurant where you can sip on a locally sourced craft beer while you nosh on a greasy bacon burger and short cut fries. Everything is over-the-top at Black Tap – just look at their Instagram if you’re ever feeling hungry – so these insanely sugary creations fit right in.
Oh look! It’s birthday cake on a milkshake!
Their staple flavours are Cotton Candy, Cookie and the Sweet N Salty (which you can spy below), but they do many special made to order creations if you ask nicely. Over Christmas there was an oreo/candy cane concoction and even a colourful Hanukkah shake complete with mini menorahs and a huge swirly lollipop.
Black Tap regularly rotate their freakshake menu so you never know what you’re going to get when you rock up – but there’s no doubt it’ll be pretty delicious.
