Today's shake: Cherry Drops
Total Score: 6.5
General Comments: Given how awesome the cherry bakewell shake proved to be, I decided to compare and contrast by acquiring a cherry drops shake this lunch time.
Unfortunately, today's shake did not match up to the wonders of its similarly flavoured predecessor. The taste itself is very pleasant, pretty much in fact exactly how one would expect liquid cherry drops to taste (and whilst the Shakeaholic blenders failed to adequately hack up turkish delight last week, it turns out that they can do an amazing job on boiled sweets). Much as it might surprise people who know me well, however, there is only so much syrupy sweetness this Squid can take. The first third of the shake was delicious, the second third went down almost without me noticing, and the final third was a little difficult to get through. If someone you know arrives carrying such a shake, it would be well worth your time attempting to acquire a sip (through acceptable means, natch; this blog cannot condone shake-stealing), but think carefully before committing to the complete beverage.
