Just when I think that my daughters are more drain than gain, they turn up and hand me four of the Shaken Udder Milkshakes!
Yes they had been to the Foodie Fest (why is everything a ‘fest’ now’) and there Shaken Udder were handing out free bottles of their milkshakes and they thought of their old dad.
Owners of Shaken Udder Jodie & Howie met at agricultural school and one thing led to another, you know, basic desires, animal instinct, uncontrollable urges and so they acted upon those deep desires and created some amazing milkshakes and Shaken Udder was born in 2004!
I had four of the Shaken Udder flavours, but six flavours are actually available and so it seems as though my daughters did fail after all. Anyway without any hesitation I reached for the Salted Caramel and my daughter snatched it away saying it was now warm and I had to wait as they needed to go into the fridge.
Normally taking away something like this from me is dangerous, but it was hot, my wheelchair wasn’t near me and so she was safe!
But oh wow, it was worth the wait!!!
The milkshake was perfection and I would love to tell you how I savoured every drop and made it last, but I have always said my reviews are 100% honest and let’s face it, do I look like someone who has willpower?
They have got it spot on, it isn’t too then and it isn’t too thick and gloopy and I have to declare that it is probably the finest milkshake that I have ever had. The Rich caramel is salted with Maldon Sea Salt which I think is a damn fine choice and not just because I am an Essex man.
I guess the temptation when creating something like this is to pack it so full of flavour and make it thick and I am glad they have resisted. The flavour was just right, it sits at the level where its just under what would make it sickly and it is, well I guess it is a Goldilocks shake. Just right, sat in the middle of too thin or too thick and I see why this brand has had so much success.
When you shake the Vanillalicious you can actually see the vanilla seeds floating around in the pale milkshake and that proves that Shaken Udder are using natural ingredients!
The shakes are available as;
- Top Banana
- Salted Caramel
- Strawberries & Clotted Cream
- Ooh La Latte
So what is in the shakes?
Well let’s have a look at my favourite the Salted Caramel!
- Semi Skimmed Milk 94%
- Golden Caster Sugar
- Stabilisers (Cellulose Gum, Carrageenan)
- Pumpkin & Apple Concentrate
- Fat Reduced Cocoa Powder
- Maldon Sea Salt
- Natural Flavouring
So I know what you are thinking!
Surely these shakes are going to be expensive?
Well I had that very same thought and so I did a search on the Tesco website and they are actually fairly priced. The 330ml comes in at the same price as the 376ml Mars drink but the drinks are worlds apart, the Mars shake is sickly and frankly in my opinion nasty.
Yes you can get a 400ml Frijj for £1 but remember when I said about getting it just right?
Well the Frijj shakes are not just right, they are way too thick and they pale in comparison to the Shaken Udder shakes.
At the end of the day this is just my opinion but like I say to my family “I have only been wrong once and that is when I thought I was but I wasn’t!” and yes they love me saying that!
