Click through the slideshow above to see where you can indulge in some over-the-top sweets.
A big trend in gluttony these days is the milkshake on steroids. In New York City, Black Tap started serving crazy milkshakes with candy vars and cotton candy in them that became Insta-famous with hipsters and foodies. Connecticut wasn't far behind on the trend.
Johnny Utah's in Norwalk started serving mega milkshakes that use all sorts of tasty accoutrements, including slices of cherry pie, blueberry muffins, crushed cookies and bacon, to pack on flavor and, undoubtedly, the pounds. Calories are about the farthest thing from the mind when slurping up the cool concoction that can go into hyperdrive with a shot of liquor.
Cream & Sugar Cafe in Bethel has followed suit. CT Bites writes:
Until a few weeks ago Cream & Sugar Café was relatively unknown...One rainy day over winter break this would prove to be pure serendipity. The first Freakshake, The Rainy Day Remedy, was born and with thanks to social medial, word on these larger than life milkshakes started to spread like wildfire. Kids began pouring in, taking their own pictures, sharing them on Instagram, creating a high demand for these insanely large ice cream creations.
These shakes are larger than life – they are the Super Bowl of Milkshakes – attracting customers like young Brooklyn hipsters from several hours away.
Shakes include Crazy for Coconut, Peanut Butter Crush Brownie Milkshake and S'mores, yet each is fully customizable.
