So Thick It's Like Concrete Milkshake

How about a thick and frosty milk shake??

Rogers Group wants you to make the thickest shake in town.
So thick, you can hold it upside down - spoon, straw, and all - without spilling it. So thick, it really won't "shake." So instead, we call it concrete.

When you serve it you'll need to wear a hard hat.



Now you can choose from an "All Shook Up Concrete" named for Elvis's favorite snack combination, has peanut-butter cookies and banana. "Cardinal Sin Concrete" with fudge sauce and red cherries, is tagged for the St. Louis Cardinal's major league baseball team. "Foxtreat Concrete" concocted in honor of the Fox Theater in Atlanta, have one bite, you'll be smitten . . .fudge sauce, raspberries and macadamia nuts or have the "Abaco Mocha Concrete" - a tropical treat - you'll think you are on vacation in the Bahama islands.


Don't forget to hold it upside down before you eat it, just for fun!
