A Facebook friend alerted me to the Toasted Marshmallow Shake at Stand after watching it on Best Thing I Ever Ate. I knew I had to track this shake down on my NYC adventures! I love this shake because while dauntingly thick at first (the straw nearly has the circumference of a dime!), it’s made with gelato, a lighter ingredient than ice-cream. Additionally, the narrow glass makes for a reasonable portion size, so even after downing a whole shake, you don’t feel like you have a bowling ball in your stomach for hours on end (like most shakes make me feel!).
The shake at Stand has a uniquely campfire, marshmallow taste, and that’s because they blend real roasted marshmallows in with the vanilla gelato. My only critique is, I’m not sure I’d choose the flavor Roasted Marshmallow as my top choice of shake! Marshmallows are rather sweet, and thus add an extra surge of sugar to an already balanced treat. Next time, I’ll have to just try the plain vanilla or chocolate shake.~
ps: The burger I had there was Awesome.
