Stand {New York, NY}

After dinner at Num Pang, despite being grossly full, we needed to end our night with something sweet. And what better than the famous Stand4 toasted marshmallow milkshake?! It was literally right across the street so we had to get it - I mean, it was staring us in the face!
We heard about Stand4's famous milkshake through The Best Thing I Ever Ate, which you know, of course, is one of my favorite shows. After watching Michael Psilakis drink two in one sitting, I was sold. 
All in all, this is THE best milkshake I've ever had in my entire life. To me, a perfect milkshake is the combination of great texture and great flavor. This milkshake isn't too thick where you can't suck it up the straw but is thick enough to feel rich and creamy - which is due to their use of premium gelato rather than ice cream. 

Also, toasted marshmallow? Umm, yeah, best flavor ever!! It was sooo delicious. But what I loved even more about this shake was that it was perfectly balanced, not overly sweet so you didn't feel sick after drinking it. We also tried the apple pie shake, which was delicious as well, but the toasted marshmallow will always have the #1 spot in my heart.
