The milkshakes that launched one thousand Instagrams are back, this time with an inside look at how they’re made.
Unveiled in November by Black Tap Burgers & Beer in New York City, the desserts quickly rose to food fad status and are still inspiring block-long lines and serious fandom, perhaps for good reason: each milkshake is stacked high with toppings, like whole slices of cake, mountains of fluffy cotton candy, or a handful of chocolate chip cookies.
Black Tap offers 12 milkshake varieties ranging from $7 to $12, depending on the level of adornment or if you choose to add booze. In a recent story, the New York Post estimated that the larger varieties can set a diner back 1,600 calories. Watch the video above for Eater's side-by-side comparison of the construction of five of Black Taps most popular milkshake flavors.
