Remember when your milkshakes brought all the boys to the yard. Well, they’re back and taking Instagram by storm.
Forget frozen yoghurt, forget cocktails… and you need this summer is a freakshake.
Born in Australia, these milkshakes – nicknamed “freakshakes” are less milkshake, and more multiple desserts stacked on top of a bit of icecream.
And now they’re in London, at Molly Bakes in Dalston!
The owner, Maria had a stall at Brick Lane market originally, and later moved to a commercial kitchen. Two books later, they opened a full-time premises in Dalston.
“On Saturday we sold over 200 freakshakes”, Maria explains. “We’ve been running out of ice-cream on several occasions. We’re going to buy a bigger freezer”. she told BuzzFeed.
“We launched the freakshakes on Instagram at the end of January, with a day’s notice. But somehow blogs got a hold of it, and we had a 200 person queue!”
If that wasn’t enough they recently teamed up with Baileys to create a alcoholic version of the Instagram favourite at the London Coffee Festival.
