Milkshakes in Upstate, SC

Milkshakes, in my opinion, have a significant advantage on a hot day. When melting, milkshakes stay in the cup, unlike an ice cream cone. When my kids were small, milkshakes were my summer kid treat of choice for this reason. Less stressful, no rush. You need to take an hour to drink your milkshake? Not a problem.

Ice cream, the classic summer treat. Eat in a cone, eat in a bowl, eat it in a sandwich. Nearly endless topping choices and your ice cream is never the same twice. My kids still ask for it in a bowl with the cone on top like a hat. It’s all good.
