THE ULTIMATE SUGAR RUSH, a FIFTEEN-DOLLAR MILKSHAKE

Would you eat a monstrous confection known as a "monster milkshake?" They may be the summer's new hot thing (now that Starbucks' unicorn has come and gone.) They're really popular at seaside resorts and people eat them (or share them) while strolling along the boardwalk. There probably isn't a graceful way to eat them--they messy, sticky and possibly delicious (I haven't tried one.)

                                                     

A monster milkshake is your wildest dream (or nightmare) topped with everything from donuts to edible glitter, Swedish fish, rock candy, rainbow sprinkles and chocolate brownies. One variety is even topped with a towering mass of cotton candy. It might have candy bars on top, an ice cream bar or even salted pretzels.
                                                            
 
It would be pretty hard to estimate the calories, and honestly, I don't think I want to. Some are just so over the top, they don't even look appealing.
 
                                                           
 
At least, that's my take. How about you? Would you spend $15.00 on a monster milkshake, or will you pass on the new craze?    It looks like it might melt before you even get it out of the shake shop. What do you think? A tempting treat or is this an ewwwww moment? Hope everyone is having a great summer.
