Screw McD and Burger King. Hunt down a Dunkin thats teamed up with a Baskin Robbins. Same price, no breakdowns.

Or screw that too and head for that place on 36th Street. Charm city creameary?

Clark Burger is my go-to place for burgers and shakes. I wish their fries were a liiiittle bit better.

Shake machines are difficult to clean, it requires taking apart the entire machine. And with staffing issues being the way they are it often isn't something they can handle. And the McDonalds shake machine is poorly designed. McDonalds shut down a couple who worked to fix them.

F fast food businesses.. support local businesses instead like bmore licks or the charmary

I like the charmery, but their shakes are really expensive.

TBF, it's a hand dipped shake made from local craft ice cream. That isn't going to be cheap.

If people are that pressed for shakes then they should be willing to pay for them.

Why did Lost City have to go? Black and white malted milkshakes made life worth living.

You do know that most fast food shakes are made of a non dairy powder? Not saying they don't add milk, or walk it by the machine, but it comes in a box as a powder.

Yes. And I don’t care. I’m veg and most of the fake stuff I eat is a weird soy product. I’ve picked my hill to die on and it’s not this

They either don’t feel like cleaning it or have decided they’re done making shakes for that shift. This begs the question: if you don’t want to make shakes, why not take them off the menu?
