Sno Shakes - McFlurry on Steroids in Pavilion KL

If you love McFlurries (from Micky Dee's), or at least think they're okay, I'm sure you've thought at one time or other "I like this Oreo McFlurry, but it would be so much more awesome if I could have it with ___________" instead (fill in the blanks with whatever snack, chocolate bar or candy you desire). Well, your cravings might just have been answered by a little ice cream / frozen yoghurt shop at the basement foodie section of Pavilion KL called Sno Shakes.

Oreo's, Kit Kat's, Jaffa cakes, Snickers, Mars Bars, Kellogg's Frosties, Bananas, Coco Puffs, Marshmallows, Coffee, Reese's Peanut Butter - these are some of the crazy ingredients that you can choose to add to a "base" of either Vanilla or Green Tea ice creams, or Frozen Yoghurt. Chances are if they don't have it, it's not worth having. I mean heck, you can even add powdered protein to the mix. You know, as a delicious protein shake before hitting the gym.

Those of you with sharp eyesight and a passion for all things techy and geeky (like the darling and I) would have spotted that - yes, you order your shakes using iPads!

Interactive menus beat down traditional ones any time of the day.

If you're not feeling particularly adventurous, you can settle for the pre-mixed ones, with funky names like Sno Surprise, Sno xcitement and Sno cochino, there should be something to suit your mood. Or just go to the 'wild' side and mix and match to your heart's content

Submit your order using the iPad, head to the cashier and make your payment, and they'll whip up your shake or smoothie.

Now, some reality check so that this post doesn't sound like a paid advertisement. At MYR12.90 and onwards for a shake, it isn't exactly cheap. And they serve their shakes in a normal soft drinks cup (i.e. the ice cream melts very quickly), and in a normal-sized straw (i.e. you can't suck up all the bigger chunks like the mini-marshmallows we had in our shake).

Verdict? The service was slow as nails, but I can overlook that seeing as today was their very first day. Plus the girl was cute ... no problem standing longer to look ^_^ ... haha. Anyway taste-wise it's exactly as you'd imagine. Choose a nice combination of ingredients and it should be nice, but I'm sure it's really possible to get the combination totally and horridly wrong :)

Next time you're in Pavilion do give it a try, if for nothing else than to play around with their iPad ordering system :)
