Once a week, I have lunch with my grandchildren and their parents who live near me. I always bring lunch and try to mix it up each week with different things. My 4 year old grandson, and his baby sister LOVE milkshakes. Since the weather here in Phoenix is definitely good milkshake weather, I thought we should have a milkshake contest and find out which fast food restaurant has the BEST milkshakes.
I was amazed at the definite opinions these little ones had! One milkshake, that I usually love and thought would win, must have had something wrong with their machine that day, because it tasted terrible and very chemically. My grandson tasted that one before anyone else and declared it was awful tasting. We all agreed!
I'm not going to tell you yet who won. Actually, it is still an on going process and we may have to have a run-off to find the winner. Besides, I don't want to influence your choices when you try this fun activity with your family! But, here are some tips on how to make the Milkshake Contest work with your kids.
First of all, I created this printable score sheet to give to everyone to use as a tally for their choices. There is space for 5 different milkshake brands. Of course, you don't have to test that many in one day. We did 3 one day and 2 another. I went and purchased all of the milkshakes and took them to the house where we were having the competition. A better and easier way would be to do the following:
We tested Culvers, Jack in the Box, Sonic, McDonalds and Burger King Shakes. If you have a favorite shake in that general price range, let us know in the comments and we will give it a try!
I also got to thinking that you could do this contest with homemade shakes. Get a few blenders together and see who makes the best! Any excuse to have an ice cream treat during 116 degree weather is great! Let us know if you give it a try and who you think makes the BEST CHOCOLATE MILKSHAKE!
Fancy glasses make milkshakes more fun! Dollar Tree has a bunch to choose from!
