The Best Milkshake

New Jersey has plenty of spots to get your milkshake on. With summer is on the way, it’s almost officially milkshake season. Okay, I admit that every season is milkshake season to me. But, summer is the best. One publication set out on the delicious journey to find the best one in the state. I mean, who doesn’t love a good New Jersey milkshake?

LoveFood.com recently put together a study to determine the best place to get a milkshake in each state. “Milkshakes are about as American as apple pie, and every state has their own mouth-watering options,” they state in the article. I couldn’t agree more. “Read on for our pick of the best of them, from towering freak shakes heavy with toppings to deliciously understated chocolate and vanilla options.” What’s extra cool is that they also suggest what kind of milkshake to try at each of these establishments. I think mint is my favorite flavor for a milkshake, but chocolate-chip is a close second.

So, which ice cream shop in New Jersey has the best milkshakes in the entire state? According to the study, it’s the “Side Show Shake” at Coney Waffle, which has various locations throughout the state. “The crazy offerings at Coney Waffle have a reputation that reaches far beyond New Jersey, where there are five outposts of the funky dessert shop,” the publication states in the story. “The Side Show Shakes are enormous and gloriously over the top, finished with everything from mini ice cream cones to cotton candy and entire bars of chocolate. They’re a popular choice for sharing (though we won’t judge if you want one all to yourself).” If you know of someone who loves local milkshakes, this seems like the perfect spot.
