XS Espresso milkshakes are one of my personal favourites simply because of how decadent their milkshakes look. The Tim Tam Peanut Butter Shake with Oreo is THE go-to milkshake for all chocolate lovers. Not only does it look incredible, it tastes amazing too. Did I mention they come in kid-sized versions too? But why would you, when you can get the full chocolatey deal. Right?

8. Three Williams

Rumoured to be a close contender to Reuben Hills is Three Williams and their phenomenal Peanut Caramel Shake – soothing, smooth and oh-so-delicious. And if that doesn’t satisfy you, how about a Snickers Shake? It just gets better and better.

How about some cereal-flavoured milk, folks? These are all your childhood dreams come true. Coco Pops, Cheerios and Nutri-Grain are infused in milk before being strained and served, making for a yummy smooth drink. The cereal milk is also sold in coffee if you’re feeling like a Coco Pops latte in enamel cups with toppings like cinnamon, dark chocolate, or the cereal itself. Hand me a cup of this goodness now!
