Located on a very trendy part of Newcastle we just couldn’t wait to try these disgustingly tasty looking beasts of a milkshake. For those who aren’t aware of the completely trendy milkshakes that are famous on the work full world of Instagram.
Okay, so after looking over the printed Instagram post, I decided I want the strawberry shortcake one and Lee went for the chocolate brownie milkshake. As I’m quite partial to a beautiful strawberry milkshake, I thought this would totally rock my world, I mean, just look at it. It’s a complete work of art and as I ate the toppings first (because where else do you start) Candyfloss was awesome, check.
But unfortunately it did go downhill from there, the biscuit was really brittle and as I eventually drank the milkshake it was so overly sweet I couldn’t drink it all, yep you heard it right, this sugar craving girl couldn’t bring herself to drink it. And as I tipped up the glass it became clear I had a good inch of synthetic bright pink sauce at the bottom of my glass.
Yuck! No wonder, I couldn’t drink it.
Unfortunately, Lee’s was much the same, this was definitely a case of form over function. I was hoping for so much and they really didn’t deliver.
Value for Money
Okay so the ‘freak shakes’ were pricey at $13 each but we thought we were buying something unique but yep you guessed it, they looked so amazing and I thought there would be a sign of quality handmade products inside. But alas nope, mass production was the key here, unfortunately. We even store a line up of jars filled with the sauce in the fridges by the toilets.
Yeah, my heart sunk and I was really disappointed.
So it was Saturday and this place was fairly busy but with people eating savoury food there not the milkshakes, maybe that was a sign! We left sad, disheartened and $26 dollars lighter. What a waste. :(
Please, can someone make me an amazing, freak shake! Anyone! Please.
