Hop on the magic SHAKE bus!
Hope everyone is well!
Last Sunday night, I attended the launch of the new "Shaketastic Bus!" You are probably wondering what a Shaketastic bus is!
Well, firstly I will tell you about Shaketastic. They are a milkshake and juice bar brand. With 5 stores under their name at the moment, they are one of the fastest growing brands of their sector. Shaketastic opening in February 2009 at the height of the recession. The day they opened was one of the worst snow days London had ever seen. Every shop closed but Shaketastic sold open and on their first day of business, they knew they would be a success.
Each shake has a differnt name - from Goldmember (crunchie, toffee popcorn and maple syrup) Coco Baby - MY FAVE (Farleys Rusks, Coconut, nutella, chocolate syrup) Clockwork orange (terry chocolate orange, jaffa cakes and smarties). If you want, you can even make your own shake, chosing a small, medium or 'pimp' size and add as many flavours inside as you like. Along with shakes, they also offer the most delicious and refreshing smoothies. My favourites are Low Cal which includes Rasberry, Strawberry, Mango and apple juice and Liquid Dream which includes Mango, Cherry, Coconut and Apple juice. They have all fruits you can imagine including banana, lychee, pineapple, passion fruit or can even add mint leaves!
The great thing about Shaketastic is that on the weekend they stay open until 2.30 (check local branch to view times.) My local branch is open until 2.30 and seems to still be so busy when I go there at 2am after a night clubbing! If you do not drive or at home having a night in with friends, what could be better than having a Shaketastic delivery. If your order is over 15 pounds, your delivery is free!
So, back to the bus!! As Shaketastic were doing so well within each branch, they decided they needed something to make themselves bigger and better and they came up with the brilliant idea of a BUS! The bus can be hired out for parties, hen do's and even outside concerts or within a festival. It is a real British double decker bus 'decked' out to the max. The bus includes a nintendo wii, comfortable seating, flat screen tvs and even a DJ booth! Where else can you go to get a milkshake, play wii and party all at the same time?!
The launch party was so much fun. There were free taster milkshakes being given out, lots of people, a live DJ and V.A.S (who is a singer/rapper) He performed his new song "Shapes in the air" (the video for the song was made in one of the ShakeTastic branches) and also a few of his other tracks. Vas is a really talented young guy who I think will make it big one day. You can check out his website at http://www.vasmusic.co.uk/ or follow him on twttier @vasmusic
To me, this really is one of the best things I have seen in a long time. It is clever, fun and I personally think will do so well.
