Have you tried the freak shakes at Peace’s at Bunn Gourmet? If not you need to mark your calendar for this Friday at 4pm. You can risk going a little later, the shakes are available from 4pm to 9pm, but it’s not uncommon for ingredients to run out by 8pm. We took the team to test out the latest shakes on offer, birthday cake and chocolate caramel waffle cone, and the place was packed!
Pease’s at Bunn Gourmet general manager and executive chocolatier Robert Solomon said the shakes had grown in popularity since the launch in June when online 13 were sold. “We listed the start time as 4pm, but people will start coming in at 3pm asking for them. Last week we sold 118 and were wiped out by 8pm.”
Robert decided to launch freak shake Friday at Pease’s at Bunn Gourmet when he caught wind of the ‘craze’ online. “I was just looking on the web and saw the trend started last year somewhere. We put our spin on them and voila,” he said.
Upcoming August flavors include milk and cookies, chocolate brownie explosion, raggedy Ann, vanilla butter cake, peach blueberry cobbler, and chocolate peanut butter Cup.
