INSIDE: Roam the Gnome’s Guide to the Ultimate Freakshakes Canberra style to BLOW YOUR TASTEBUDS AWAY!

Take one chocolatey nutella-fueled milkshake, and put it in a giant mason jar.

Add MORE gooey lashings of NUTELLA so it overflows, and drips lusciously down the sides of the jar.

Top it with nutella-coated salty pretzels, a burst of vanilla mousse, and pretzel dust, and what have you got?

Freakshakes Canberra style are the world’s best crazy milkshake, that’s what.

Try this one, OR one of the other Freakshakes on the Patissez menu below.

The Patissez FreakShakes Canberra story

Back in June 2015, the girls behind Patissez took the humble Australian milkshake and flipped it on its’ head.

The addition of wild toppings so enormous that people drew a gasp when they saw them on Facebook and Instagram, sent social media into meltdown.

The humble milkshake was no longer enough.

People now wanted to EAT their dessert milkshakes, with an assortment of:

  • brownies
  • pretzels
  • puff pastry, and 
  • toasted marshmallows on top,

All these bonus ingredients then drowning in amongst ladles of Nutella, gooey peanut butter, and strawberry sauce coulis.

The FreakShake is now Patissez’s signature dish, one they are proud to have invented.

This is not a fad.

Freakshakes Canberra way are a specially crafted combination of fun flavours to satisfy even the sweetest tooth!

We tried a FreakShake!

At $14 a pop, it’s a special once-in-a-lifetime hand-crafted dessert-in-a-jar loaded-milkshake treat, but we had to do it.

It’s the Canberra way.

(The Freakshake price can freak people out though!)

Jack ordered the delicious Pretzella, described above.

Ned chose the Mint Condition.

That’s a Mint and Chunky Chocolate shake, with a gooey choc fudge sauce, and

  • milk crumb
  • mint chocolate semifredo and chocolate cookie sandwich
  • mint choc mousse,
  • topped with even more choc fudge source.

You bet right.

They couldn’t finish them, SO I DID.

Hot tip: If you take the kids, don’t bother ordering one for yourself if you can handle waiting a few minutes to sink your teeth in. Guarantee they’ll start to feel a bit sick after just a few bites!

Was it fun? Yes

Was it worth the wait? Yes

Would we recommend a visit to Patissez Canberra for a Freakshake?
