Puget Sound is about to get hit with a heat wave this weekend, with temps in the mid-to-high 90s. One way to cool off is with a classic summertime treat–the milk shake. Five Guys burgers now has milk shakes. For $3.99 you can get a basic vanilla shake and for no extra cost you can add as many mix-ins as you like such as Oreo Cookies, strawberries, chocolate, salted caramel and malted milk. For my first shake, I mixed in chocolate and malted milk. It takes a few minutes for the flavors to meld. I sipped mine slowly during my meal and by the end, I could taste the malt a little better than when I had first ordered it. My finance had the Oreo cookies. Note: The mix-ins are blended really finely, so if you get the Oreo cookies, it’s more like Oreo cookie powder, rather than chunks. Still flavorful, I just prefer that my Oreo cookie shakes have more texture.
