It was a fun-packed afternoon as Shakeaway, the world’s largest milkshake bar company, opened its doors to lifestyle writers and bloggers in a special milkshake tasting event which had everybody swooning with delight.
With some 50 stores across the globe, Shakeaway has virtually reinvented the milkshake by offering over 180 different fantastic ingredients and millions of combinations to choose from. There’s tiramisu, Nutella, M&Ms, Kitkat, and Lindt to bananas, strawberries, pineapples, and red velvet cake. The flavor combinations are endless so one need not have the same milkshake twice!
Made from ice cream or 100% fat-free frozen yoghurt, Shakeaway milkshakes have undergone a vigorous taste testing process with every flavor profile screened perfected. One can actually eat and drink Shakeaway milkshakes as small pieces of the ingredients are purposely left for the milkshake lover’s gustatory enjoyment.
The one-of-a-kind tasting event, which was hosted by Brits Mari Jasmine and Graham Caygill, had as special guests His Excellency Asif Ahmad, The Ambassador of the United Kingdom to the Philippines, Peter Dickson, Chief Executive Officer of Shakeaway UK, and executives of Firefly Sky Food Concepts, which brought the franchise to our shores.
Three rounds of shake samplers were enjoyed by guests. The first one had guests gulping down the Dave and Jose shakes. Dave is made from Ferrero Rocher and Kinder Bueno with crumbled Cadbury flakes on top. Jose is exclusive to the Philippines and made from Filipino ingredients, ube and macapuno with pinipig on top.
The second round featured Ivy from the Fit and Healthy line of nutritional and low fat shakes for health-conscious milkshake drinkers. This shake is made from 100 percent fat-free frozen yoghurt with special crunchy ice along with kale, banana, and mango. Guests also got to sip an offering from Shakeaway’s smoothie range, with the standout combination of peach and pineapple.
The last batch was definitely a treat with the sweetness of Skittles and the luxurious Red Velvet.
As if those weren’t enough, everybody enjoyed a big serving of shake based on the results of the Shakeaway Personality Quiz they were given at the start of the program.
Shakeaway also serves frozen yoghurts, smoothies, all-natural shaved ice, and low-fat fries. All are handmade to order with real and fresh ingredients every time.
