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.
- Have a few people go out and buy one or two shakes. That way the first one you buy won't be getting warm and melted before anyone can test it. Just time it so everyone goes and buys and arrives back around the same time.
- If you want to do a blind test, I suggest sliding the milkshake cup inside a larger cup to hide the logo. We didn't do a blind test. Everyone had their own straw so as not to share germs and for the small kids, we poured them a bit of the shake into a separate cup.
- We used the chart to rank the shakes for price, how chocolaty they were and how creamy.
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!
