This was my first time purchasing from this LOTF. I've eaten at others, and have always ended up regretting it. However, I was in the city late. I had earlier seen a sign, in a different LOTF shop advertising The Lords Shake, and for some reason I was craving one, badly. I overrode the voice of previous experience. I wanted a vegan cookies and cream milkshake!
First up, the staff member who served me was lovely.
The shake itself certainly wasn't bad, it just wasn't particularly good either. Firstly, there wasn't enough ice-cream in it. For the price, I was expecting a good thick shake, instead it had all the body of one made entirely on soymilk, even though I know there was soy ice-cream in it. Secondly, the oreos were overblended - I've had awesome cookies and cream shakes in the past, and part of the idea is to actually have recognisable lumps of cookie in it - so that you need an oversized straw. If it's thoroughly blended in, then it's just a chocolate milkshake that happens to have cookies as an ingredient, not really cookies and cream at all.
I think I'm cured of thinking that LOTF is a good idea for at least the next 6 months...
Cons: It never lives up to expectation
