An afternoon in Disney California Adventure just calls for a great Disneyland Corn Dog, right? And after that, what other option do you have besides diving immediately into something sweet? We’d been intrigued earlier in the day by the the Sam Andreas Shakes, where the “seismic ice cream” is “delicious to a fault!” (oy.)
Their promise of “extra rich” ice cream and milk shakes won us over, so we headed to the Sam Andreas stand — which happens to be located right across the way from the Farmers Market (we were pretty trapped by the High School Musical parade).
My husband chose the extra thick Vanilla “After Shake,” while I couldn’t help myself and had to go for the “Bug’s Land Sensation” Shaker o’ Mud (chocolate cookies blended into the shake followed by a gummy worm topping…).
Of course, the extra thickness means that you have to suck your lips into your face to actually consume any of the shake, so I quickly switched to a spoon!
The shakes were, indeed, “extra rich,” and we were soon overwhelmed by the sweetness! I think we each got through about half of our shakes before we had to give up the ghost, but we both deemed the shakes worthy opponents and would definitely recommend them as a full meal in themselves.
Have you tried these or other milkshakes in Disney Parks? What are your favorite suggestions?
UPDATE: Sadly, the OC Register has just let me know that San Andreas Shakes is soon to become a thing of the past This and the other farmers market locations are being paved to make way for Cars Land, opening in 2012! Still, this gives us some new dining options to look forward to!
