Move along milkshakes, step aside smoothies, the Freakshakes are in town, and Melburnians are going crazy for them.

What's so Freaky about a Freakshake?

Hold tight folks, we're about to tell you where you can try these decadent monstrosities in Melbourne, but before we do, you might want to know what the Freak is a Freakshake?

Like a thickshake on steroids, you are served with a jar filled with flavoured milk, topped with cream, ice-cream, lollies, donuts, chocolate, sprinkles, nutella, cookies, and just about any other edible treat you can think of. Not all of the above is served in one giant sugary volcano (not far off, though!), you choose a themed Freakshake from the cafe's menu.

The rise of the Freakshake

These bewildering deserts/drinks are bursting onto cafe tables all over Melbourne faster than staff can pile them together.

The Cake Cottage in Frankston is one such cafe that has jumped on the Freakshake bandwagon. After only a few weeks of serving up around 8 Freak varieties, staff at the tiny beachside bakery are powering out close to 30 shakes a day.

If you think that's crazy, spare a thought for the sugar fairies in Canberra. In the Nation's Captial, there's a cafe serving up to 247 mega milkshakes in one day.
