Shake #9

Today's shake: Toblerone

Taste 7
Texture 6
Scorn 4
Synergy 8
Total Score 6.75

General Comments: Not nearly up to the standards of the After Eight shake, this chocolate beverage is nevertheless entirely acceptable. The honey is subtle but noticeable, and the chocolate mixes well with the ice-cream in a manner suprising to no-one. Even the nuts manage to be acceptable, I had been worried that the thickness of the shake would require levels of suction great enough to turn the chunks of nut into deadly missiles, ready to lacerate my palate (a similar problem occurred with the Jaffa Cake shake; turns out combining Jaffa Cake cake with vanilla ice-cream forms armour-piercing rounds, who knew?), but this proved not to be the case. In fact, the only downside was the large chunks of Toblerone that occasionally blocked the straw, forcing straw relocation in direct violation of the experimental conditions as laid out last week; this cost the shake a Texture point.
