Rich vanilla ice cream blended with melted caramels and salty, roasted cashew nuts. A thick ice cream shop style milkshake that you have to eat with a spoon.

My husband’s favorite milkshake is Caramel Cashew from Nielsen’s Frozen Custard. Their ice cream is so thick that they call it concrete. While this shake isn’t as thick as Nielsen’s, it’s every bit as creamy and delicious. My husband gave it two thumbs up.
