Free milkshakes for a year.

How to nearly win free milkshakes for a year.

1. Enter a competition on the local radio station to coincide with the launch of Make-A-Shake in Hitchin.
2. Come up with an original recipe for a brand new milkshake.
3. Call it the UFO (Unidentified Frozen Object).
4. Use these ingredients:
– Vanilla ice cream
– Milky Way
– Revels
– Starbursts
– Top with sherbert Flying Saucers
– Sprinkle with Space Dust

5. Get through to the final 4 and the live on-air ‘slurp-off’.
6. Lose to the apple crumble-based ‘Crumble Me Up’ recipe.
7. Have Make-A-Shake like the UFO enough to put it on the menu anyway.

The ingredients (DJ's tea not included).

Chris was unprepared for the UFO's sugary blitzkrieg.

UFO's available here.

In the end they invited my daughter (who’d helped me with the recipe) to come to Make A Shake and try the UFO for herself. She was even interviewed live on air. Her verdict? “Lovely!”
