Ever since I turned my scoop of pumpkin praline ice cream into a milkshake (or squash shake), I've been on the lookout for unusual shake flavors. Word on the street was that Little Big's produces a rocking butterscotch milkshake, so I stopped by during one of the warmer evenings this past month.
At a little under 12 ounces for about $4, the Butterscotch Milkshake is about half the size of the milkshakes at Amy's and almost as expensive. But I guess its diminutive size is appropriate if you're eating sliders. And not everyone demands ice cream and milk in mega-gulp portions like me.
I can't complain, however, about the taste. People weren't exaggerating when they raved about the knock-your-socks-off butterscotch flavor. Pure white in color, the milkshake might be mistaken for plain ol' vanilla until you take that first rich sip and your tongue is hit with the taste of a thousand Werther's Originals.
I also appreciate that the shake was served in a semi-solid state. I'm an impatient, hungry girl and don't like these rock-hard concoctions that cause you to gulp air every other sip through the straw. Well done, Little Big's.
