Sometimes in life you have to decide just how hungry you are. And to what means you will go to fulfill every taste bud to your exact liking. It's in these moments that your cravings develop a personality, and it's up to you to deliver its kindred spirit.
So, maybe you want some chocolate or caramel to satisfy the sweet tooth, but you want a creamy and filling drink to wash it down. Chocolate chip cookies dunked in milk require too much effort for what you want. Your taste buds want something crunchy and sweet, but creamy like a milkshake.
Say, something like a … cereal milkshake? Aha!
Taste buds, meet "Breakfast milkshakes."
Steak 'n Shake is introducing its "breakfast"-on-the-go cereal milkshakes, which will feature Kellogg's crowd-favorite cereals: Frosted Flakes, Cocoa Krispies, Honey Smacks and Cinnamon Crunch (non-branded, but very similar to Kellogg's Cinnamon Toast Crunch).
Available all day at Steak 'n Shake locations nationwide, these milkshakes are a perfectly justified excuse to have breakfast for dinner (although, they're hardly considered breakfast). Each one of these babies comes topped with whipped cream and a cherry.
According to Brand Eating, Steak 'n Shake is calling these shakes "great tasting, filling, and convenient breakfast shakes, especially for those on the go." Hmm, great tasting? Yes. Filling? No doubt. Convenient breakfast shake … for those on the go? You'll need to sit down for a few minutes to finish this gargantuan sugary-liquid breakfast.
Steak 'n Shake's breakfast shakes are (not) a part of a complete breakfast (but still, irresistible!). Food cravings are an untamable beast, sometimes. And honor them, you must!
As you would line up to happy hour after work, so will you to get a half-off deal on all shakes (on weekdays from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.). Which, at $3.79 a pop is unbelievably tempting. Knock back a couple of these after work and you'll be asking for a ride home (a sugar crash is no joke!).
It's obvious that the breakfast shakes were not created for the sake of a healthy and nutritious breakfast, per se. I'd like to see Steak 'n Shake take Kellogg's Special K cereal and churn it into one of these liquid desserts. And watch if anyone appreciates the obvious irony.
