Shake Down
If we're being honest (and we always are), we need to let you in on a little secret. Vanilla milkshakes are one of our greatest weaknesses. They're thick, creamy, frozen, and completely delicious. Unfortunately, behind most thick and delicious milkshakes lies a TON of fat and calories, usually due to TOO MUCH ice cream and full-fat milk. For example, the crazy Vanilla Hand-Scooped Ice Cream Shake at Carl's Jr. has 710 calories and 33g fat, which is more calories and almost as much fat as the chain's Famous Star with Cheese hamburger. Yikes! Chances are, when you get a milkshake, it's only PART of your meal. And frankly, no one needs to add hundreds and hundreds of calories' worth of drinkable ice cream to a meal. Need a reasonable solution? DRINK OUR MILKSHAKE INSTEAD. Seriously! Our shake is delicious and thick with a sweet 'n creamy vanilla flavor you'll LOVE. And look at it this way: You could have our shake, an Awesome Whopper Stopper, AND a serving of Bake-tastic Butternut Squash Fries for WAY fewer calories than if you had one of those other shakes. Yeah... we're good.
