Burger Jones brings on the salt!

Salty caramel is certainly all the rage, and why not?  It's delicious!  Unfortunately, few places are willing to take this scrumptious flavor combination to the salty extreme.  Not any more thanks to Burger Jones.  Their salted caramel custard shake, while being smooth cold and creamy, is also quite unabashedly salty.  No weak sprinkling of sea salt here, this shake is salty through and through, in a good way.

​The great thing about Burger Jones's salted caramel shake is that it begins as a traditional, well crafted custard shake loaded with dulce de leche caramel.  Served in an old fashioned milkshake glass and topped with whipped cream and a cherry, this treat also looks the part.  But when you take that first sip, the coarse sea salt that is blended into this shake hits you at once and cuts through the sweetness of the caramel perfectly.  This shake may be the perfect accompaniment to a burger and fries, playing off the rich saltiness found in both.  It is so salty-good.  Thank you Burger Jones for bringing the salt to sweet and salty.

Great choice --this is definitely their best. I also liked their alcoholic shake that had Nerds in it, but that was because it was so over-the-top sugary, not because it was necessarily that great as a shake.
