Johnny Utah’s Unveils Super Shakes

We know you can’t get enough of outrageous twists on the classic dessert, so here’s where you can find more

It wasn’t too long ago that Black Tap’s “Crazy Shakes” rose to popularity and became instant Internet sensations with long lines to match. Inevitably, copycats of these monstrous milk-and-ice cream mixtures began turning up, including here in Westchester. Look no further, for example, than Lazy Boy Saloon‘s silliness in a glass or Madison Kitchen‘s sleeker, more refined version. And the latest regional venue hopping on the fad is country-western bar Johnny Utah’s in nearby South Norwalk, CT.

Johnny Utah’s currently offers five different “Super Shakes,” four of which I got to sample, including one “Shake of the Month.” Each iteration starts with a fairly traditional foundation, but around and atop the rim, they become increasingly, cartoonishly decorated and creamy. Not to mention they make a great Instagram post. Each one sells for $10 (or $15 with a hooch of your choice), even if Pulp Fiction’s Vincent Vega would surely scoff.

If you decide to take the lactose-laden, sugary plunge, here are your choices:

Chocolate Peanut Butter – Topped with Hershey’s Milk Chocolate sections, mini Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, a mound of roasted marshmallows, and whipped cream. The outside of the glass is coated in peanut butter.

Cherry Bomb – Cherry shake blended with Skittles, vanilla-frosting rim with various fruity candies, whipped cream, Skittle shavings, a cherry Pop Tart, and cherry pie.

Blueberry Muffin – Blueberry shake, rimmed and topped with vanilla frosting, blueberries, blueberry muffins (regular and mini sized), and whipped cream.

Cookies & Cream – Cookies and cream shake, topped with whipped cream, Oreo, and Cookie Crisp cereal, with a vanilla-frosting rim and cookie crumbs.

Vanilla Bacon – Vanilla shake blended with bacon bits, topped with bacon, whipped cream, and French fries.

Shake of the Month: Payday – Peanut butter-vanilla shake, whipped cream, peanut-butter rim, crushed peanuts, and PayDay bars.

 

People will stare at you as you sip away, and finishing a whole one is quite the task, which I admittedly failed. Are you up to it?
