Just a skip away from Mary Coyle's is a brand-new joint with something to shout about: the Burger Studio. Its chocolate milkshake has room for improvement, specifically in the ratio of chocolate syrup to vanilla ice cream. But the shake made up for taste discrepancies with a creamy texture. This shake rang up at $4, and that felt about right for this clean, urban-modern joint.

Another worthy spot: Udder Delights in Gilbert. It is a haul from central Phoenix but is so worth it. The chocolate milkshake hit every category of yumminess for me. Udder Delights makes its own ice cream, and you can tell. I will head out there again to taste the potato chip-flavored ice cream. The price is high at $5, but Udder Delights gets props for its giant straws, which I used to suck down the creamy treat effortlessly.

The homemade ice cream at Mary Coyle makes for a tasty shake.

For my final mmm, yeah!, I must raise a waxed paper cup to, McDonald's. Their chocolate shakes are under $2, are available all over town, and they get a big mmm for consistency. The ratio of vanilla "shake mix" to chocolate syrup is perfect, and the shakes are creamy, not too icy, and very smooth. Yes, it is a fake shake and contains seaweed as a suspending agent, but this treat hits the spot every time.

Anyone who gives accolades to a McDonalds "milkshake" has no business doing a review such as this. You undermined your credibility completely.
