Last year, local chain Boston Burger Company, began serving an array of extravagant milkshakes they lovingly refer to as “freak frappes”. The trend involves taking an old fashioned milkshake and loading it with toppings from traditional whipped cream and cherries to decadent options like candy, cereal, bacon, donuts, and entire slices of cake and pie!
Boston Burger Company recently announced that their Cambridge location will host two holiday-themed events where guests can design – and eat/drink – their very own freak frappe creations! The magical affairs are known as “Freak Frappe Festivus”.
There are typically 10 – 12 monster milkshakes available at Boston Burger Company at any given time and the flavors are always evolving.
A few recent creations include a massive Nutter Butter themed creation…
A Peanut butter fluff frappe with peanut butter syrup, a fluff s’more, Reese’s sticks, and toasted marshmallow…
…And November’s Frappe of the Month, cleverly titled “We Pecan’t Believe Our Pies”. The butter pecan frappe is topped with maple frosting, sweet potato fries, maple bourbon pecans and a generous slice of pecan pie – wow!
October’s selection, the “Don’t Be a Basic Witch” was a pumpkin pie frappe topped with a candied apple, cider donuts, and Apple Jacks cereal.
The great thing about Freak Frappe Festivus is that participants can make their treat as simple or as elaborate as they want. Staff members will be on hand and ready to help guests deck out their frappes with an array of tasty toppings.
As an added bonus, the visitor wearing the ugliest Christmas sweater will win a Boston Burger Company gift card for future use.
The Facebook event post reads:
