Welcome to another article in our 'Useful Lists' series - this week on the discussion group we wanted to find out what you thought were some of 'Brisbane's Best Freakshakes'?
First of all, what is a 'Freakshake'? Well, it's pretty much a thickshake on steroids! A jar of yummy goodness - flavoured milk, ice cream, chocolate bars, lollies, doughnuts, cookies and pretty much any other naughty treat you can think of! Want to know where you can get your hands on one? Then keep reading!
Whiskey Business, Capalaba Crunchy honeycomb, jam doughnut, salty caramel macaroon, and lemon meringue - this is just a small taster of the 24 'World Famous Thickshakes' on the Whiskey Business menu. Yes that's right, 24! And at just $8.90 a pop, that's truly one delicious, calorific bargain!

Ramekins Cafe, Carseldine If you're after a hit of peanut buttery yumminess, then make sure to check out the popular 'Snickers Shake' at Ramekins Cafe in Carseldine. Complete with Snicker bar pieces and spun sugar toppings, this is definitely not a shake for the faint hearted. And we're simply counting down the days until next Easter when we can tuck into their delicious creme egg 'Easter Shake'!

Blue Infusion Cafe, North Lakes For some of the craziest and most "Instagram worthy" creations, we've gotta hand it to Blue Infusion Cafe at North Lakes. Their thickshakes may break barriers in the height department (that is a lotta cream people!) but priced at just $10.50, they definitely won't break the bank! Chocolate Hersheys, peanut butter and pretzel, and creamy caramelo are just a few of the flavours on offer.

We can't get over some of things Mondaze dare to sit atop their thickshakes - definitely a sight to be seen. There are 10 flavours to choose from, and most of them also come in kids size, so the whole family can indulge in some truly bonkers beverages!
