Me want cookie!
That’s the mantra of Cookie Monster on “Sesame Street,” and now, sweets emporium Sugar Factory is serving up a milkshake worthy of the gluttonous Muppet.
In fact, it is him.
The sugar-fueled chain known for over-the-top cocktails and milkshakes has introduced two new birthday-themed shakes to its mega-sized menu, the Cookie Monster Make a Wish, and the Princess Make A Wish.
The monstrous Muppet mug is loaded with cookies and cream ice cream blended with vanilla sauce and topped with whipped cream. Stuffed between the rim is a chocolate chip cookie and a blue glazed doughnut — Cookie Monster-colored of course — with eyes and a cookie piece mouth. The fun doesn’t stop there. The outside of the mug is coated in chocolate and chunks of chocolate chip cookie to pluck off. It’s served with a blue frosted cupcake and birthday candle.
The Princess themed shake is vanilla ice cream blended with vanilla sauce and rainbow sprinkles. It’s topped with whipped cream, a marshmallow wheel, white chocolate Kit Kat, and pink frosted cupcake with a birthday candle. The mug it’s served in is coated in white chocolate and pink sprinkles.
Both shakes are $21.
If booze is more your style but you still need a sugar rush, try one of the many Goblets, or giant fish-bowl sized candy cocktails that effuse smoke thanks to dry ice. The Goblets, most are $39 at New York locations, come to your table stuffed with sweets and the ice, and then the drink mixture is poured in so patrons get the full smoky effect.
Choose from options like the Lollipop Passion, a blend of rum, vodka, melon, coconut and pineapple that’s garnished with lollipops; or The Drake, made with Virginia Black Whiskey, peach puree, and sweet tea and decorated with Sour Patch peaches and strawberry lemonade flavored cotton candy.
With drinks like that, don’t expect the food to be dull. Appetizers include Rainbow Sliders ($25), five mini cheeseburgers served on different brightly-colored buns and with a rubber duck to take home. And don’t miss the Fried Macaroni and Cheese Pops ($16), large mac and cheese balls that are breaded, deep-friend, pierced with a wooden stick and served with a creamy marinara basil sauce.
If you’re more of a healthy eater — which you’re probably not if you’re coming here — options include the Chinese Chicken Salad ($20) and the Pan Roasted Salmon Salad ($28).
