Who Serves the Best Milkshake in the State of Iowa? [PHOTOS]
Back when I was 16-years-old, my first "real" job was at Cold Stone Creamery. I ate a ridiculously large amount of ice cream in the year that I worked there. So much ice cream, in fact, that I'm still sick of it 14 years later! You know what I'm somehow not sick of, though? Milkshakes.
The website Love Food recently put together a list of the best milkshakes in all 50 states, and I don't think anyone can argue with the pick for Iowa. The honor has been bestowed upon Zombie Burger + Shake Lab for their Zombie Unicorn Shake.
Zombie Burger used to have a couple of locations here in the Corridor, but both of them are now closed. Now the only way you can taste their delicious milkshakes is by taking a trip over to Des Moines. The article from Love Food reads:
"From the tongue-in-cheek names for its menu items to the zombie-themed artwork inside, everything this fast food joint does is loud, proud and fun. That includes its milkshakes, which are creative, colourful and crowned with all manner of curious toppings."
The Zombie Unicorn has some pretty basic ingredients, but that's all Zombie Burger needed to be named the winner. It contains vanilla ice cream, marshmallow cream, and Fruity Pebbles. Oh, and you can spike your Zombie Unicorn with a little alcohol if you're feeling adventurous! Zombie Burger also serves milkshakes that contain other popular cereals, like Reese's Puffs, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, and Crunch Berries.
If you're looking for a delicious milkshake here in Eastern Iowa, there are plenty of options close by! Hamburg Inn No. 2 in Iowa City is famous for their pie shakes, which contain an entire slice of pie in the flavor of your choosing.
Over in Uptown Marion, Frydae is getting a lot of attention for their milkshakes, with flavors like Peanut Butter Crunch, Glampfire, Cereal Killer, and Candyland.
And in Solon, a new restaurant called The Brass Fountain has a menu filled with malts and shakes, including a few with alcohol!
