Every so often, I review stuff on social media instead of here. The following item was reviewed on our Instagram page (@junkbanter) and didn’t receive the usual blog treatment of a not-so-clever story and a full array of images. This review heavily leverages that post on Instagram. Sorry I’m not better.
F’real Pumpkin Cheesecake Milkshake
All I wanted was a coffee. I had a particularly long workday for my real job, traveling down to Washington D.C. complete with maddening traffic and little time to eat Oreos. At the meeting I had to run, a client told me I had no idea what I was talking about. Well, shit… my job is to know exactly what I’m talking about.
This often happens in the field of auditing… nobody wants to be told that they’re not doing the best they can at their job. But such is my job, and I try my best to do my best. I hate not being liked, but nobody cares for an auditor as soon as they step into the room. It’s a stressful job at times, and this day was super stressful.
I stopped at a gas station to fill up my tank after the day, eager to return home. I stepped inside for a coffee while I waited. I was drained – dangerously low on pumpkin spices. But while getting a pumpkin spice coffee to hopefully fuel my evening run, I overheard three kids giggling furiously. Their mother was helping them prepare F’real milkshakes. I had never had one, but judging from the kids’ joy and excitement, maybe this would fix all…
Then I saw it: Limited edition F’real Pumpkin Cheesecake. My only thought was, “I deserve this.”
My thoughts are summarized below.
I really didn't wanna say this f'real milkshake was "for real," but my hand is forced. This is legit. It tastes how I imagine Ben & Jerrys Cheesecake would taste when blended with milk & ice. You can buy these at many gas station convenience stores (Royal Farms here in MD). The next time you run out of gas and self-respect simultaneously, reach for this wonderful 600-calorie cup of love.
The F’real Pumpkin Cheesecake milkshake is one fine quality milkshake, something you might not expect from a gas station. Sexy ingredients include ice cream, butter, sugar, and cream cheese. There’s no cutting corners with the pumpkin either. It contains real pumpkin puree, nutmeg, and cinnamon. It’s creamy, smooth, and delicious with a superb spice blend. Maybe I should eat more things sold exclusively in gas stations… or maybe I should just improve at my job.
On this day in particular, the F’real Pumpkin Cheesecake milkshake sure hit the spot.
