Milkshakes are all over the place, but don't assume that all milkshakes are the same. Some places are overly hyped up and are more focused on being Instagrammable than actually producing a flavorful, quality milkshake... not to mention any names... *cough cough Black Tap*. When in New York, you might have your eyes set on the mainstream tourist trap that Black Tap has become, but Big Daddy's is where you should really be going.

What Is Big Daddy's?

Big Daddy's is a trendy diner that started out in New York back in 1969. However, there's a problem – their outstanding milkshakes don't get enough credit. Just because Big Daddy's milkshakes don't add a million extra components, doesn't mean they're valued less in the world of milkshakes.

Some of their most popular milkshakes flavors include Cotton Candy, Cookie Monster, and a Chocolate Lover shake. Big Daddy's also has a "flavor of the month" milkshake, which is a flavor that is limited to that month only. An important thing to note is that all of their milkshakes are made with lots of TLC and effort. 

What You Should Get

If you're looking for something that's a little sweet but not over the top in terms of sweetness. Big Daddy's cotton candy milkshake wants you to feel okay about everything that's going on in your life. It's creamy, soothing, tastes like the world's best cotton candy, and is a mood booster. 

If you're someone that's in love with chocolate, I'd stick with Big Daddy's Chocolate Lover shake. Why? Because it tastes like magical chocolate chips and with each sip, shots of chocolate burst into your mouth, which is honestly a very beautiful thing to experience. 

If you eat, sleep, and breathe all things cookies, Big Daddy's Cookie Monster milkshake is the way to go. Essentially, it tastes like the best cookie on the entire planet except in a milkshake format. It has a creamy texture to it and is on the sweet side, but that's part of what makes it so amazing.

Ultimately, if you can't decide what milkshake to get, stick with the flavor of the month. July's flavor was Blueberry Cobbler, and it tasted like a cloud of blubbery muffins. It seems odd but it's very soothing. 

Big Daddy's is the place to go to for flavorful beautiful milkshakes. The best part is, you don't even have to wait in a long line to get your hands on these milkshakes. Whatever you do – make Big Daddy's part of your life for a life full of no regrets.
