The Custard Files: “Standing Order” Concrete
This has been “Today’s Special” since at least April. Every week when we go to shake shack I look longingly at the description of “vanilla custard mixed with real fresh strawberries and orange-poppy caramel.” August’s Monday Flavor is Salted Caramel and since we had already reviewed that, I decided it was time to try out this so-called special. Vanessa went a different route and we will have her review later.
Back to the “Standing Order,” at first I was a little weird-ed out by the texture of the poppy seeds through out the caramel, but they grew on me. The contrast of the citrus-y caramel with the vanilla and the fresh strawberries was awesome. I would have liked it if the strawberries had been a little more pulverized, because there is something a bit strange about the texture of a frozen strawberry. But that is a minor complaint, all and all, I would encourage you to try this special!
