In February our Kid Kritic, Elizabeth Chandler, ranked several milkshakes in town. A few commenters asked, “What about Hopdoddy’s?” School is out, and she made the trek.
I recently tried Hopdoddy’s milkshakes. I got the red velvet one. It sounds like it would taste disgusting but it turned out to be fantastic. It was really rich, and they topped it off with whipped cream and bits of red velvet cake which gave it a bit of a texture to it. It was a pinkish color, and who doesn’t love pink? It was thick but not super thick to the point of where you couldn’t sip it within five seconds. I also had a sip of the chocolate milkshake. I can’t say much about it because I only had one sip but it was really chocolatey and it had the same thickness as the red velvet milkshake. In the milkshake, they had a huge, fat straw and a spoon. I can’t rank it in my previous review over multiple milkshake-selling restaurants because it would be unfair to them because I haven’t tasted their’s in a while. But these would definitely be in the top somewhere. Hopdoddy’s has many different varieties of milkshake flavors like vanilla bean, Nutella and chocolate pretzel, raspberry white chocolate, and caramel and sea salt. I loved Hopdoddy’s milkshakes and can’t wait to try more flavors!
Our Kid Kritic, Elizabeth Chandler, is back. Today the sixth-grader reviews seven milk shakes. And ranks them below.
This time I decided to write about milkshakes so I didn’t have to beg for one. If you really think about how a milkshake tastes it might even taste better or worst. The things that I looked at included the texture of the milkshake, how chocolatey they were, and any toppings that were included. At the end I will show my favorites. It might not be your favorites though. So here are the seven places I went to and what I thought.
Pokey O’s: The place known for their ice cream sandwiches but they also have good milkshakes.
Their milkshakes were made right then and there and were not in the machine hours on end so it had some nice texture. It was very chocolatey but not enough where it was overwhelming. It had average thickness; not to thick not too thin. You could tell that the ice cream was Blue Bell even though it had a lot of chocolate. So overall it was really good and had a right balance of everything.
McDonalds: The milkshakes that you’ve had since you were two climbing on that play area.
It took about five seconds before I could suck it up so it was just right amount of thickness before it hit really thick. But it was very thorough and had no texture. Some people like it really smooth, but I like to have some texture. But it did have whipped cream and a cherry which was nice.
