Who serves the best milkshake in the state of Iowa? [PHOTOS]
When I was 16, my first “real” job was at Cold Stone Creamery. I ate a ridiculously large amount of ice cream the year I worked there. So much ice cream, in fact, that I’m still fed up 14 years later! You know what I’m not fed up with? Milkshakes.
The website Love Food recently put together a list of the best milkshakes in all 50 states, and I think no one can argue with Iowa’s choice. The honor was bestowed on Zombie Burger + Shake Lab for their Zombie Unicorn Shake.
Zombie Burger used to have a few slots here in the hallway, but both are now closed. Now the only way to taste their delicious milkshakes is to take a trip to Des Moines. The Love Food article reads as follows:
From tongue-in-cheek names for its menu items to the zombie-themed illustrations inside, everything this fast food restaurant does is loud, proud and fun. That includes its milkshakes, which are creative, colorful, and crowned with all kinds of curious garnishes. “
The Zombie Unicorn has pretty basic ingredients, but that’s all the Zombie Burger needed to be named the winner. It contains vanilla ice cream, marshmallow cream and fruity pebbles. Oh, and you can add some alcohol to your zombie unicorn if you’re feeling adventurous! Zombie Burger also serves milkshakes containing other popular grains, like Reese’s Puffs, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, and Crunch Berries.
If you’re looking for a delicious milkshake here in eastern Iowa, there are plenty of options close by! Hamburg Inn No. 2 in Iowa City is famous for its pie shakes, which contain a whole slice of pie in any flavor of your choice.
In Uptown Marion, Frydae attracts a lot of attention for their milkshakes, with flavors like Peanut Butter Crunch, Glampfire, Cereal Killer and Candyland.
And in Solon, a new restaurant called The brass fountain offers a menu filled with malts and shakes, some with alcohol!
