Oreo Milkshake @ Reuben Hills, Surry Hills

$8.50 – 18 March 2018


This milkshake was striking and different, mostly in the wrong way. The first thing that struck me was the lack of straw served with the milkshake. Stainless steel straws are the way to go for a sit down milkshake. Paper straws are generally bad given most of them are soggy by the end of a milkshake. Plastic straws are not the solution. No straws? The worst option of all.

This milkshake was certainly tasty to begin with. The Oreo flavour was very apparent. It was nice and cold due to a decent amount of ice cream used.

But there were many things wrong with this milkshake. It seems a big cause was how it was made. It appeared to have been blended, judging by the complete lack of bubble distribution at the bottom half of the milkshake. This is despite 3 Roband machines on display. The bottom half tasted like milk at the bottom of a cereal bowl. Overly sugary, not a lot of Oreo flavour, no froth, just terrible. At the very bottom of the milkshake were small, sugary, chocolate nibs. These should have either been fully blended or just not added in the first place.
