I haven't had a milkshake since...gosh, I can't even remember! I know it's been years, maybe even a decade or more since I had one. But today, for whatever reason, as I was standing in a local Arby's restaurant looking at the menu board, I spotted the Jamocha shake...and it sounded good.
I figured it would come in a regular soft drink cup, flat plastic lid and a straw, just like I remember from 25 plus years ago. I was quickly reminded that "today's" milkshakes have a lot more going on. Everywhere you get one, it's: Triple thick, whipped cream topping, fudge drizzle, maybe some sprinkles and a cherry on top. Don't forget not only a straw, but you better get a spoon with that too. And I hope you don't feel like drinking it for about 30 minutes so it can melt into some sort of liquid consistancy.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining. Just pointing out how things have changed. Because I ordered one...and man was it good! ;)
