I had previously griped that the Mickey D's that's fairly closest to me stopped selling milkshakes but the other, out of my way, still had it. Well I guess enough people had complained that they brought it back. Whoo-hoo. That all I wtd. A small fry and a shake once in a blue moon & I'm a happy bunny. I was beginning to think it might have been seasonal. But not necessarily so. N E way, I'm glad they're back. Toodles hamburglars. :-}

Well I am glad that your McDonald's is selling milkshakes again,and I have heard that McDonald's has good milkshakes but I have never tried one from what I can remember,so one day when I am at McDonald's I might get one and see if it is as good as everyone makes it sound.

Hi hellcowboy, Are they good. Yes. Of course nothing really beats homemade. But some of the best ones I've had were when I was a kid/ adolescent. From Dairy Queen or Bob's Big Boy or Friendly's. And in my jr. & sr. years of high school, like other friends, we got our first paycheck jobs in moderately fast food. I worked at Burger King. Honestly I preferred their shakes-salads & onion rings. But where I live in my neighborhood of Manhattan, there are more McDs a good hike away] by far than Burger King which is more sparse. And now that I think about it, I've not set foot in a Bob's Big Boy since I was 5 in Washington state; Dairy Queen since i was 20 & living in Maryland and I used to WALK BY a Friendly's after I moved to Long Island, NY. I was broke & I always passed it when pounding the pavement for work in 1994. I couldn't afford anything in there back then. There isn't one in Manhattan anywhere. So are Mickey Ds shakes 'world class'? No, but they sate the cravings when u want a shake & ur on the go. And as I said in a previous discussion, a good, realistically priced milkshake is rare if not difficult to find in Gotham. And if U do, be prepared to be ripped off, I mean sticker shocked w/ prices like: $4., $5. and $8.bucks for a lousy 16 ounce shake!! L8R M8, 'J'

I used to go to Burger King when I got out of school and get a milkshake cause I love Burger Kings milkshakes,I can understand being closer to a McDonalds cause where I live there is a McDonalds like 5 minutes away,and it sucks that it has been that long since you have been in a Big Bobs or a Dairy Queens,and it sounds like a McDonalds milkshake would help on a hot day,and yeah I know it seems like some of the prices are ridiculous.
