This shake is great! The strongest flavor was mocha, but being paired with subtle notes of almond made it all the more delicious.

The whipped cream was sweet, but not too sweet, and was a little bit thicker, which we liked. It was a nice appetizer to the main course of the actual shake. The consistency of the shake was very smooth and not too dense, a welcome sight on this warm afternoon.

The shake was topped with a peanut and chocolate-encrusted toffee dipper that was just the right amount of candy to go with our shake.

The nuts around the outer rim are nice to look at, but somewhat impractical to the shake and didn’t contribute anything. As a walk-around drink, it was difficult to eat them off the rim or scoop them with a spoon without making a mess. Overall, this shake was an absolute smash and was a great value for the $7.99 price.

This coffee-based dessert, though somewhat unsightly, was absolutely delicious.

Being an espresso-based drink, it was a bit watery, but its flavor was great and not bitter. This was an easy drinker; any coffee lover would love this twist on the affogato.
