Ghirardelli® Shake Family

Shake Sensation

Spring 2017

A new sensation is sweeping the nation and it is sweet! Enjoy a classic milkshake or shake it up with an over-the-top sweet indulgent treat.

The new Planet Hollywood Observatory™ in Disney Springs™ is the place to be! Start your meal with an item off the brand new Guy Fieri’s menu featuring over-the-top burgers and sandwiches. Conclude your meal with an irresistible sweet finish. Big Dipper Shakes are available in the classic flavors of vanilla, chocolate and strawberry. Guests can also take their meal to another planet with a Supernova Shake.

The Supernova Shakes are “Hand-Dipped and Whimsical Milkshakes.” The menu features flavors such as the Strawberry Big Bang, a classic strawberry milkshake topped off with sprinkles and a slice of birthday cake. The Cosmic Cotton Candy is a cotton candy milkshake topped with rainbow sprinkles, white chocolate covered pretzels and topped off with cotton candy and a lollipop. It is sure to bring a smile as big as the universe! The Chocolate Comet is a chocolate milkshake bombarded with all manners of chocolate yumminess – double chocolate brownie frosting, candy, brownies and a cookie straw. All Supernova Shakes are frozen treats from a frozen planet that is out-of-this world!

At Ghirardelli® Chocolate, their chocolate is as rich as their heritage. Their experience, passion and commitment result in a delicious legacy you can taste with every bite of their premium chocolate products. Ghirardelli® Soda Fountain & Chocolate Shop located in Disney Springs™ delivers not only chocolate confections but fountain items such as decadent milkshakes and Quake shakes. Their thick shakes are available in twelve flavors. The Quake Shake™ is a Ghirardelli® Chocolate Bar infused Milkshake available in Caramel, Strawberry, Sea Salt Caramel Banana or Mint flavors. Visit the Chocolate Shop and discover other sweet indulgences and gifts to share with friends, family and loved ones.

The Universal Creative team continues to amaze with another uniquely designed restaurant for Universal CityWalk™, The Toothsome Chocolate Emporium & Savory Feast Kitchen™. Their newest creation is an enchanting 19th century themed, Steampunk inspired dining establishment.

The emporium’s proprietor, Professor Doctor Penelope Tibeaux-Tinker Toothsome, is a chocolate aficionado bar none, infusing chocolate into the most extraordinary recipes, including many of the establishment’s entrées. The fare includes classic dishes like steak and seafood, and an all-day brunch featuring crepes and quiches, each with their own novel twist. But the true culinary alchemy arrives in the form of gourmet chocolates, one-of-a-kind desserts and a selection of artisanal milkshakes with flavors such as Chocolate x5, Bacon Brittle and Red Velvet. You can even purchase tasty mementos from the restaurant’s retail shop to enjoy at home.

The World’s Largest Entertainment Epic McDonald’s is more than just a unique restaurant offering. Visitors with a sweet tooth can indulge in great desserts at the Orlando-area McDonald’s, which offers more sweet treats than a traditional McDonald’s restaurant. The McCafe dessert area features decadently decorated cakes, freshly baked cookies and a full ice cream bar with more than 10 flavors of ice cream, where guests can order everything from a custom ice cream sundae, banana split or strawberry shortcake, or delight their taste buds with a rich and creamy milkshake featuring their favorite flavors and toppings. McCafe milkshakes are made with the finest reduced fat vanilla ice cream, premium syrups and whipped topping.

While on vacation indulge in the newest sensation and shake up your dessert!
