A milkshake sold in South Carolina is bursting with strawberries, but the flavor doesn’t stop there.
The creation is also topped with a whole slice of cheesecake, earning it recognition as one of the “most outrageous” milkshakes in the USA.
The treat-filled concoction is sold at The Mad Mason in Mount Pleasant, just outside of Charleston. It was the only place in Palmetto State to be named one of “11 of the Most Outrageous Milkshakes” on Yelp.
The restaurant review website said it created the unranked list after users shared their favorite places to get milkshakes. Yelp considered “total number of submissions, ratings, reviews, geographic representation and other factors,” according to results shared on Thursday, September 15.
The Crazy Mason said it was exaggerated jerk begins with “ice cream in a swirling mason jar of strawberries with a rim of vanilla buttercream rolled into crushed cones.” Then the shake bursts from the jar with the addition of strawberries, crushed graham crackers, frosting – and, of course, a slice of cheesecake.
The concoction – called Soft Cheese — had some Yelp users raving, helping The Crazy Mason earn more than four out of five stars.
“You know the old saying, when people think something is good, they say, ‘sweet Jesus’? Well, we say Sweet Cheesus,” Bo Steele, co-owner of the milkshake shop, said in a Yelp blog post.
In addition to its Mount Pleasant location, The Crazy Mason has a presence in Greenville, Myrtle Beach and North Myrtle Beach. Its website also lists proposed stores in Maryland, North Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia.
Although the Mount Pleasant store has achieved national recognition, Steele told Yelp that Sweet Cheesus is generally a top seller across all of the company’s locations. If you’re not a cheesecake fan, shakes topped with caramel apples, cannoli and other delicacies are also on the menu.
On the national list, other milkshakes that feature in the rankings were served in Arizona, California, Florida, Nevada, Ohio, Texas, Utah and Virginia. The extravagant toppings of these shakes ranged from sugary cereal to burger and fries.
