Homage to the Great CBD Milkshake

I have been wracking my head for something light and happy to blog about and it occurred to me:  I am yet to promote one of my favorite things.  And I am referring to no less than the CBD chocolate milkshake.

CBD milkshake

I would not dare count how many times I have drunk this heavenly concoction this past month alone.  But my credit card bill could firmly attest this truth:  CBD had made a significant contribution to my Miles points and to the inches on my waist and hips.

I could no longer remember when an officemate referred this resto to me.  But being the milkshake-lover that I am, I eagerly tried it out and there was no turning back.  CBD’s chocolate milkshake is the epitome of all milkshakes:  thick, creamy, and oh so chocolatey!  It is the ultimate chocolate experience.

The taste of CBD’s chocolate milkshake can only be rivaled by that of NYFD and Seattle’s Best Coffee, as all three use the same Scoopery Chocolate Ice Cream in their shakes.  BUT, CBD’s stand out because  1.  it gives higher value to your money and 2.  the blend is just right.  Checking the menu of NYFD at munchpunch.com, NYFD’s milkshake is only worth P90.  However, I have had several experiences with the NYFD shake at Glorietta and after one incident, I could hardly say that I would promote this store’s shakes. For one, NYFD is not exactly famous for its milkshake.  There was one time when I saw that the ice cream that they used for my milkshake was already expired!  Plus, the milkshakes are not always made with the same ingredient ratios so they don’t taste the same every time you order one.  On the other hand, SBC’s milkshakes are just too expensive.  Why pay P155 when you can get a better experience for only P120?  Plus, the shake comes in a more environment-friendly paper cup, instead of the usual plastic one.

The milkshakes of Army Navy, Pancake House, nor McDonald’s don’t hold a candle to the king of all milkshakes.  The first sip is like having the gates of heaven open up and make way for delightful sensations to fill you up.  I truly enjoy that “hmm, ang sarap!” moment, time and time again.  Seeing it on the faces of my friends and colleagues is even better.  I have undoubtedly influenced a significant number of people into experiencing this man-made wonder and everyone is living to tell the tale of palate pleasure that must not be contained.

Here’s to you, oh, CBD milkshake.  May your price never go up again.  ♥ ♥ ♥

  1. I really miss CBD. I always buy their blueberry cheesecake milkshake and their burger. ;___;
    I wish they’d open a branch somewhere in makati again soon. :<
