The need for strict milkshake regulation

I understand that the name does not help. It’s not called icecreamshake for one.

Here is the issue: You go out for a burger you ask for a milkshake. Not chocolate milk and specially not milk with cheap crappy semi-expired chocolate syrup from the bargain shop, but that is what you get here 90% of the time.

And here is where your cultural expectations come in play. Friends look at the chocolate milk that comes when I order a milkshake in a place that I’ve never been before and don’t see the issue.

By the way I’m not even talking about the so called freakshakes (those are broken everywhere). I like whipped cream as much are the other person but sometimes 1 cubic meter of it laying on top of a mason jar with handles might be a bit overpowering with all the bacon, oreos and paper umbrellas.

I mean just a bona fide milkshake. And here is my point:

I think we need the equivalent of the German Beer purity laws but for Milkshakes

It is not hard. A milkshake should be made of Ice cream and milk, ONLY and it has to be thick enough to hold a spoon upright. See: done.

That said the best milkshake that I’ve ever had is the one that you get from Pozzetto Gelato in Paris. That alone is worth a flght there.
