Patissez, a bakery and cafe in Canberra, Australia, is gaining notoriety for its freakshakes. What is a freakshake, you ask? Sometimes it's better to show instead of tell:
This is a freakshake:
This, too, is a freakshake:
These glorious monsters are also freakshakes:
The cafe has been overwhelmed with freakshake requests recently, though co-owner of the store Anne Petridis told the Canberra Times that people have been posting pictures of freakshakes to social media for a while now.
According to Patissez's Facebook page, yesterday marked a new record: They sold a new record of 249 freakshakes in one day. That means in 24 hours, 249 humans ordered milkshakes the size of their heads - assuming each person ordered just one!
The staff has asked for patience as they stock up on "trays of marshmallow, brownie, pecan pie, caramelised puff pastry AND...our chocolate fudge, creme patissiere & salted caramel" to make enough freakshakes for the masses with.
There's no mention of how many calories there are per freakshake, but if you're going to commit to something like this, really commit. If you're going to half-ass it, I guess order the gluten-free option (no, really, that exists).
