Shake #21

Today's shake: Crunchy Nut Cornflakes

Taste: 8
Texture: 6
Synergy: 9
Scorn: 1
Total Score: 8

General Comments: Everyone with any real taste is aware that the best part of eating a bowl of crunchy nut cornflakes is finishing the flakes themselves, and drinking the remaining honey-tinged milk (surreptitiously, of course, otherwise Mum will shout at you). This shake essentially replicates this joy over the course of an entire beverage. In fact, the added creaminess makes the experience even more pleasing. Even the tiny gritty remains of the flakes that get in your teeth don't detract from the experience as you might think they would, in fact it actually improves the drink even more.

In fact, the only downside to this shake is the accumulation of a layer of soggy corn sludge at the bottom of the cup, which pretty much tastes like the soggiest cornflake mush imaginable. This means a slight reduction in the volume of drinkable cup content, but the quality of what remains is so high I am inclined to forgive.

With another trip through the seven ingredient categories complete, it's time for some more number crunching. Stay tuned for the results!
