Freakshakes originated in Canberra, Australia however, lately, they seem to be creeping to other spots around the globe - and lucky for us, the UK is one of them. These 'milkshakes' don't just bring boys to the yard; with just one glance they increase your risk of a heart attack AND diabetes, yet, this doesn't seem to be scaring any of us off. There are tonnes of videos floating around social media showing us just how to make our very own Freakshakes, but, what exactly ARE they?
In a nutshell, the 'Freakshake' is a humongous milkshake that's topped with cream, cake and virtually every sugary, sweet treat you can possibly think of. Whatever flavour makes your tastebuds tingle, you can bet your bottom dollar that there's a Freakshake to satisfy them. Although they sound heavenly and utterly delicious, they're more than likely the equivalent of your calorie intake for the next week or two (OK, we're being slightly
dramatic...) But, they look so amazing that we don't really care.
We can't see this craze stopping any time soon. In fact, we can only see Freakshakes getting even more extravagant. We're not too sure how you can possibly get more extravagant than a milkshake topped with 4 donuts, 2 pancakes, a waffle, whipped cream and an oreo...
There's a fair few places in the UK that you can get your paws on these bad boys.
Not only do Molly Bakes
