We have hundreds of flavour combos on our menu and we love each and every one! But...there are ten Shakes that our lovely customers ask for over and over again and we wouldn't dare argue with the experts! Our Shakeologists think some of these are popular because they are classed as 'retro' sweets and chocs so perhaps they bring back happy childhood memories.
Introducing Shakey's Top Ten (in no particular order)
Oreo Cookie Shake: Possibly the best cookie in the world. Did you know Oreos have been around since 1912? With chocolate on the outside and creamy fililing in the middle, Oreo cookies are the perfect Milkshake ingredient.
Love Hearts Shake: Sweet, zingy and fizzy. This is one Shake flavour that speaks of love (not just on Valentine's Day but every day).
Cadbury's Flake Shake: Cadbury flavours definitely make moreish Milkshakes, that's why we have so many on the menu. The flake Shake is a chocolate treat that is even nicer with cream and sauce on top. (By the way, you can have free cream and flake on any large Milkshake!)
Crusha Milkshake Mixes - Banana, Chocolate, Raspberry and Strawberry: If you like a simple Milkshake with a traditional feel, then our four classic Crusha flavours will do the job. The Shakeologists love all the flavours (not all in one cup though!)
Parma Violets: These were first made in Derbyshire in 1946. We didn't realise that violet petals were used to soothe in medicine in days gone by. This is a Shake like no other. Smooth, tasty and very moreish and, yes, we think it is quite soothing too!
Bubblegum Millions: There are lots of Millions flavours to be had but our customers seem to love the crazy bright blue colour of our Bubblegum Millions Shake as well as the unmistakeable bubblegum flavour twist.
Cadbury's Curly Wurly Shake: The sweetness and stickiness of the caramel and yumminess of the chocolate make this Shake super delicious. We are always tempted to add extra cream and chocolate to our Cadbury flavour Milkshakes.
Kinder Bar Shake: Kinder means 'children' in German and our Shakeologists say that Kinder Bar Milkshakes are good for any age group. Maybe our Shakeologists love this one because they are big kids at heart. Blended with ice cream, the Kinder Bar makes a perfectly dreamy Shake.
Cherry Bakewell Shake: If you like cake, you'll love this Shake! The icing, pastry, sponge filling and jam all combine to make a delicious pudding-style Shake. We mustn't forget to mention the cherry!
Now we know you might be thinking "which one should I try first?" Well, we can't help you with that, but we can suggest you try a Shake from Shakey's Top Ten until you find your very own favourite flavour. Make sure you pick up a Loyalty Card from your Shakeologist - once you have purchased nine Regular or Large Shakes, you get a Regular one free. Oh, did we mention that you can have free cream and flake on any flavour Large Shake at any time...
We were already looking at products that are kinder to the environment when we received a heart-felt letter from a young primary school pupil who wrote: "Plastic straws are very bad, can you do something to help?" It is estimated
We wish our customers and friends a happy and shakeylicious new year. It is two years since we introduced a range of Hot Shakes (after a customer asked for a Hot Chocolate Hob Nob Shake). For the first time ever,
Ssshhh! We had to keep a big secret recently...we were nominated in four categories at the first ever intu Derby Retailer Awards! During the summer, intu Derby Shopping Centre invited the people of Derby to vote for their favourite stores,
Here at Shakin' it, we hear from lots of under16s looking for a weekend or holiday job (we think this might be something to do with our delicious Milkshakes). We are happy to consider age 14 upwards to help us
