There is no better time to celebrate the classic frozen drink because it’s National Vanilla Milkshake Day.

Yes, there really is a day to celebrate everything.  June 20 is National Vanilla Milkshake Day and it isn’t too late to get to Gunther Toody’s and enjoy one of delicious creamy concoctions.  Ours are made from hand scooped ice cream and we serve them in the tin.  Not only do we have classic vanilla flavor, but if you’re a little more adventurous then you might want to try Butterfinger, Brownie Fudge, Oreo, or Chocolate Cherry.  You can even add a shot to any of our shakes or malts and make it a Twisted Shake!
