Hello shake showdown!

Ahh the difficult questions that life throws at your sweet journey ;)….

While out with my cousins during this last holiday season, my cousins and I were faced with a very tough decision while taking a break from a holiday shopping spree…which milkshake flavor should we get at the diner we were at ;)? Gasp! Black cherry or piña colada? Pistachio or cookies and cream? Ahhhh! (Insert: giggles here :D!) While we finally picked out shake flavors then, (I picked black cherry while my cousins picked banana and Oreo), we found ourselves with making another sweet decision while in Vegas ;). This time though it was not just a pick of which flavors to get but which food place to choose as well? 😉

Right at the heart of Red Rock Resort and Casino, is a Ben and Jerry’s and a Fatburger. We were faced between choosing from the various Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream flavors and the Fatburger shake types.

In the end, we got one Ben and Jerry’s Chunky Monkey shake and one Fatburger red velvet shake.

How did the two compare? See below 😉

Price
Ben and Jerry’s Chunky Monkey: $5.25
Fatburger’s Red Velvet: $4.34

Presentation
Ben and Jerry’s Chunky Monkey: large shake topped with whipped cream
Fatburger’s Red Velvet: small and simple (no whip cream)

Consistency
Ben and Jerry’s Chunky Monkey: little bits of chocolate mixed in vanilla ice cream
Fatburger’s Red Velvet: smooth, smoothie like red velvet base

Taste
Ben and Jerry’s Chunky Monkey: bold banana flavor in the beginning till the dark Oreo chocolate bits will start filling the taste buds
Fatburger’s Red Velvet: sweet red velvet flavor that tastes like a red velvet cupcake in liquid form

Overall the simple red velvet shake from Fatburger won me over. I’ve always been a red velvet fan and this could be why. The shake was full of sweet and creamy red velvet flavor. I was impressed however with the Ben and Jerry’s ice cream base and nice presentation. Ben and Jerry’s shake felt like a sundae versus a shake. Ahh the tough decisions one must make while on vacation ;). Overall both shakes were sweet treats for my cousin and I :). Life is sweet, after all :).
