The Milkshake Factory

The Milkshake Factory is bringing all the boys (and girls) to Jalan P. Ramlee's yard, charging cheap rates for a choice range of blended beverages.

Two flavors of milkshakes, topped with whipped cream: on the left, mixed with a Mars candy bar, and on the right, with Famous Amos chocolate chip cookies. OK, so they look exactly alike, but thankfully, both taste distinctively different.

Another two for the road: Ferrero Rocher & Kellogg's Pop-Tarts Ice Cream Shoppe Hot Fudge. The shakes here _ made-to-order _ sure hit the spot. Sumptuous but not sickeningly sweet; rich and creamy but not excessively thick and icy.

The long list of other milkshake varieties available here is absolutely alluring. Sneak a peek at the candy stash below.

Let's wrap up with some good news: this factory might soon open at Pavilion too.

  10. joe: ya, imagine actually trying to eat all of them! hehe :D
    j: that's nice to hear, since i'm a pop music addict (though my taste leans toward the cheesier songs. i'll try to make you think of a debbie gibson or nkotb number next time) =)
    michelle: oh, nope, it's actually closer to klcc. near a lot of clubs...
    lfb: discount, why do i merit a discount ... does that mean i'll get an inferior product/service ar ... heheh...
    eiling: oh, too many choices, and there were only two of us! i love mars bars, so that had to be my number one option! :D

  11. Uhm, how about a surcharge for you, then? LOL

    ReplyDelete
  12. lfb: i wouldn't pay a surcharge unless i know exactly what extra stuff i'd be getting! :D

    ReplyDelete
  13. LOL. Extra cream? 'Tis a milkshake, after all. :P

    ReplyDelete
  14. lfb: extra cream sounds like a lot of empty calories. unless you can find me a version enriched with vitamin B and zinc and other nutrients :P

    ReplyDelete
  15. What version would that be? :P

    ReplyDelete
  16. lfb: dunno. i've always just hastily gulped down every type of cream i've tasted, without taking the time to check their nutritional content :P

    ReplyDelete
  17. And suddenly you're worried about whether the cream's nutritionally enhanced or not? Why the sudden change of heart? :P

    ReplyDelete
  18. lfb: as you mature and grow wiser, you become more cautious about what you put in your mouth? :D

    ReplyDelete
  19. Indeed. Suddenly not everything tastes good. LOL.

    ReplyDelete
  20. lfb: ya, especially not the sour ones. eww. :P

    ReplyDelete
  21. The famous amos milk shake sounds like my kind of drink! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  22. bangsar-babe: ya, i couldn't resist trying that one too! though in the end, i think cookies taste better just the way they are :D

    ReplyDelete
  23. Sour cream? Well, at least it weren't expired...

    ... was it? :P

    ReplyDelete
  24. lfb: never! always swallow it straight from the, ermm, container :P

    ReplyDelete
  25. saw the shop last week whilst stuck in the jam :p was wondering if got biz at that location?

    ReplyDelete
  26. babe_kl: ya, i think they need to depend on office workers and tourists, since parking on that street is tricky! :D

    ReplyDelete
  27. Ahh is that Ferrero Rocher?? And M&M's?? Toblerone? That's food paradise to me! Hehe.. not to mention that I super LOVE milkshakes! Yum!

    ReplyDelete
  28. I so wanted to turn all hoochie when that song was all I heard day and night! And yes, still lactose-intolerant but damn right, it's better than yours! :-P

    ReplyDelete
  29. Swallow you may well do. Swallow it straight, uhm... :P

  30. iamthewitch: hope u manage to check out these milkshakes some weekend! don't try heading here on weekdays, cos traffic will drive u nuts! :D
    min: hehe, the cool thing about music is that we can't physically be allergic or intolerant to any genre! i know some folks insist they can't stand cheesy pop tunes, but hey, at least it won't cause them rashes or anything! =)
    lfb: gasp! i sense you know me better than 80 percent of my other readers. or maybe that's not too difficult after all :P
