I disagree. A milkshake is a rich, creamy taste sensation.
Melted ice cream is warm, sticky, and I'll let the good and gentle folk of Fark finish that analogy by themselves.

You're not missing much, as far as fast food chain milkshakes go.  But I have a certain amount of pity for you having never tasted the quasi-orgasmic pleasure that is a well-crafted mom-n-pop ice cream shoppe (with an "e") malted.

I don't think what Mickey Ds purports to sell (does the machine ever work?) can legally be called a milkshake.

But, Sonic, DQ, and Culvers are all fast food places that sell legit ice cream milkshakes.

Ice cream melts below the freezing point of water you silly goof.

If you consider 30 degrees warm, well that's super weird.

Well, it's certainly warm for ice cream, innit?
If your ice cream doesn't immediately produce a stabbing icepick sensation between your eyes, you may as well be floating in the Gulf of Mexico in August.

I saw that in the shop the other day and was not brave enough to try it. I assume it!s just a vanilla milk, like chocolate or strawberry.

It doesn't sound good.

Canned shakes and flavored mills aren't a new invention, and they generally just make one feel disappointed compared to the real things.

Unless they found a groundbreaking new way make a good one...

Naaaaaa. And Wendy's frosty is air.
But. Baskin-Robbins and others add sugar syrup to their shakes.  I ask them to hold that. When I get a shake. And I don't miss the extra sugar one bit.

Doing a strawberry milkshake properly
usually involves using a compote, which is made from chopping up and either storing or cooking the fruit in sugar to create a syrup. You don't get the same flavor profile if you just toss fruit into your shake.

Increasing the overall sweetness tends to make flavors blend better.  Why you can get away with combinations in sweets that would be a bit much in savory dishes
