Ode to the Buona Pumpkin Spice Milkshake

Okay, I'll admit that I was pretty hungry when I went into Buona Beef to get a hotdog to take home for dinner.  And one for the dogs to share to apologize for getting home an hour late. (Because those dogs have internal clocks that would put a quartz movement to shame).

And then I saw this:

Now that is obviously I am not going to pass that up.  And when the milkshake was passed over the counter to me I may have heard angels singing.  (And I'm an atheist, so that doesn't happen too often).

I am not saying this is some fresh-picked hand-chopped experience, but I do think it is a perfect example of bandwagon-jumping delicious fast food. Each sip opens with a burst of caramelized pumpkin flavor (or reasonable facsimile thereof). Then a burst of cinnamon and nutmeg.  And each sip repeats these little flavor fireworks.

Highly recommended: 8.75/10
