Snowballs Ice-Cream And Lollies,
320 Melbourne Rd, Newport. Phone: 9391 0711
After our visit to Snowballs a while back, and the subsequent blog post, one visitor strongly suggested we check out the peanut butter milkshake.
That seed planted in the dark recesses of Bennie’s noggin bloomed to the extent of regular reminders to his father that stopped a straw’s width short of nagging.
Still, when the time comes I am happy enough to help slake his milkshake lust.
“It’s the best milkshake I’ve ever had!” the boy enthuses – even if he does end up taking a goodly proportion of it home for later completion.
The peanut butter milkshake costs $5.
First in goes ice-cream specifically made, I am told, for milkshakes.
Then follow chocolate milkshake flavouring, smooth peanut butter and milk.
The result is nowhere as peanutty as either of us is expecting, but it is a very rich and heavy concoction.
I had nightmarish images of satay-flavoured gloop swirling around my brain.
I like the mild peanut/choc flavour well enough, but a couple of sips suffice.
Bennie, though, keeps on sucking till he is sated. Then completes the job soon after arriving home.
