Auf Wiedersehen Shacktoberfest Part II

It wouldn't be a proper recap of Shake Shack or its Shacktoberfest without talking about their concrete specials. This year they had two specials:

Cranberry Almond Streusel
Vanilla custard mixed with cranberry compote and almond streusel. Topped with a little schlag (whipped cream)

German Chocolate
Chocolate custard blended with coconut, toasted walnuts and caramel. Topped with a little schlag (whipped cream) except they didn't put on the schlag which is okay by us.

A preferred the Cranberry Almond Streusel as it had a nice ginger-y flavor to go with the tartness of the cranberries and the sweet crunch of the streusel and almonds. The schlag wasn't necessary, but it was okay.

M preferred the Cranberry Almond Streusel because of the cranberries. She likes cranberries. Also, her thought was that the German Chocolate was good because of the coconut, but overall wasn't anything special.

A agrees that the German Chocolate overall had good flavor, and coconut is always a treat, but it was nothing overly special. The walnuts added a nice bit of texture to the concrete, but the caramel was lost due to the overall sweetness of the concrete.

We definitely enjoyed both concretes as they each had their own merits. Overall, we still think the Jelly's Last Donut is the best concrete they offer in the Theater District.
