Welcome To Taste of States a place where we celebrate the weird and wonderful food of the United States of America. This can be everything from the snacks that are available for a limited time to the foods that are classic traditions at events such as Christmas and Thanksgiving! Each week we will explore the facts and the history surrounding a different food.


Today we are heading to Steak n Shake, an American restaurant that is mainly located in the Midwestern area of the country. Some of the locations include Springfield Missouri, Janesville, Houston and San Antonio to name a few. Today we are going to look at a drink that some people have deemed that it is ‘too pretty to drink’ – The Cotton Candy Milkshake.

In April of 2020, Steak n Shake announced that they were releasing a brand new milkshake that was available for a limited time – The Cotton Candy Milkshake. The drink is Ice cream blended with cotton candy syrup and topped with whipped cream and a cherry. The syrup that is used turns the shake into a bright light teal colour.

When the milkshake was released they had drink happy hours between 2-5 Monday to Friday where you would get the beverage for half price. Now, a drink like this comes at a number of calories which is 370 and 9 grams of fat.

There are many reviews online about the shake with some complimenting how sweet it is with some saying that it is a great pick me up.
