REVIEW: Burger King Froot Loops Shake
Cereal milk is best served cold, but it’s so f*cking hot right now. Ben & Jerry’s was the first mover when they turned cereal milk into ice cream to celebrate National Cereal Day, and now Burger King is turning Froot Loops into a milkshake just because they can. The progression from cereal MILK to cereal MILKSHAKE is such an obvious one and companies are now making hundreds of thousands of dollars from an idea that I was too dumb to conceive myself.
Burger King Froot Loops Shake
Burger King describes the Froot Loops Shake as velvetty vanilla-flavored soft serve with FROOT LOOPS Cereal pieces and a sweet sauce. They honestly could have just served me a cup of the sweet sauce and I’d be happy.
Your burger barista will ask if you want whipped cream when you order the Froot Loops Shake. If you ever say no to this question in any context, you should re-evaluate where you are in life and how you got there.
The first sip is fruity cereal forward for sure. My mind went straight to Fruity Pebbles instead of Froot Loops, but a second sip has me convinced you could go either way on this one. It’s a comforting, familiar flavor and it tastes like a Saturday morning cartoon. You’re damn right it’s sweet, but it’s not any sweeter than you’d expect from something called a Froot Loops Shake.
Each sip finishes with the flavor of vanilla soft serve on the back end. The transition from fruit to vanilla is harmonious and I enjoy the final profile. It’s really hard to mess up vanilla soft serve, but it’s also really hard to mess up lettuce and BK finds a way. I’m impressed with this milkshake relative to my expectations.
What might throw you for a LOOP® are the cereal pieces scattered throughout. These really didn’t bother me personally. They’re coarsely chopped and all of them made their voyage through my straw with ease. They actually do a ton of legwork (possibly all of it) to drive home the Froot Loops flavor. It might seem lazy but it’s effective. – just be prepared for some things in your mouth.
Whether you’re buying this for your kid or you just eat like one, I can’t see anyone being upset with the Burger King Froot Loops Shake. Unless you hate Froot Loops that is – in which case, I hate you.
