Top 5 Milkshakes in Mississauga
Published August 5, 2017 at 4:10 am
The perfect beverage to cool you down on a hot summer day is, without a doubt, a milkshake. From childhood, milkshakes were a staple beverage at any local ice cream shop or diner. The classics were chocolate, vanilla, or strawberry with whip cream and a cherry on top. Today’s milkshakes are a combination of multiple hard ice cream flavors, fruit or a substitute for milk, such as an almond, soy, or lactose-free beverage.
Whichever way you like your milkshake, it will leave you feeling nostalgic and refreshed.
The classic milkshakes from ice cream shops or diners don’t usually come with an option to substitute regular milk for almond, soy, or lactose-free–however, Bliss’ offers multiple milk options for those with dietary needs. I appreciate the attempt to offer customers a custom milkshake so that they are able to enjoy it without consequence. The classic Bliss milkshake is a traditional rich and creamy milkshake with your choice of ice cream topped with whipped cream. The classic milkshake with a substitute of lactose-free milk for an extra $1.00 did not taste any different, it was undeniably delicious and mouthwatering.
Murphy’s Ice Cream Parlor is a go-to for many Streetsville residents. This gem offers 15 unique ice cream choices, such as spider-man, cotton candy, pistachio, lemon, mango and strawberry. Making a custom milkshake is as easy as picking two flavors of hard ice cream and combining them to create a perfect milkshake. I wanted a combination of mango and strawberry, while the taste was packed with a fruity punch, the price for a regular came to $6.25 (more expensive than an average milkshake).
Tucked in the corner of the kids’ menu at Bobby’s Hideaway lies the milkshake menu. It’s no secret that milkshakes are generally a children’s favourite, however adults can equally enjoy a milkshake treat. Bobby’s milkshakes have classic flavors; chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry. Pleased with my choice, the chocolate milkshake came in a tall glass. The milkshake was both creamy and thick, similar to a frosty drink at Wendy’s. Overall, the silky and smooth texture of the milkshake was both satisfying and highly enjoyable to finish.
One of the oldest ice cream shops in Mississauga opened its doors in 1958. Since then, Dairy Cream has become a well-known hot spot for Port Credit residents. Upon entering Dairy Cream, my first impression is the décor inside is outdated and small, but if you can overlook the need to upgrade the dessert menu is outstanding. Dairy Cream offers 25 unique flavors of sundaes and ice cream. With flavors such as caramel, mocha, cappuccino, blackberry, pineapple, raspberry, and coconut isle you can be sure that there is something for everyone. Milkshakes come in small, medium or large and for an added 40 cents you can add a cherry on top. The caramel milkshake was creamy, thick, and incredibly sweet. If I had went with a fruity flavor they would have added real fruit with the ice cream–perfect for those summer nights.
If you haven’t been, Dairy King’s menu selection of dessert is next-level amazing. The outside of Dairy King is a small walk-up counter with benches to sit-on. The menu offers crepes, waffles, soft and hard ice cream, and, of course, milkshakes. There are 14 hard ice cream flavors that can be blended to create your own custom milkshake. From watermelon sherbet, butterscotch ripple, French vanilla to strawberry, mango, and chocolate chip cookie dough. The difficult choice of choosing a flavor resulted in me picking the strawberry milkshake. Between choosing a regular and a large, the regular is more than enough for one person. The taste was well-blended, packed with fruity flavor, and irresistibly sweet. It would satisfy anyone with a sweet tooth.
