What's a milkshake if it isn't piled high with loads of whipped cream, candy, sprinkles and any other sugary treat you can think of? If you want to fall into a blissful sugar coma, you'll be happy to hear that The Yard Milkshake Bar is potentially opening a new location in Atlanta. Even just looking at the pictures will make you drool.
The Yard Milkshake Bar was recently featured on Shark Tank on Nov. 11 and snagged a deal with investor Mark Cuban. When the first location opened in Alabama in 2013, the place completely blew up in popularity.
Soon, we (hopefully) won't have to travel too far to get our hands on one of these bad boys because they are looking to expand to ATL.
The Yard, owned by couple Logan and Chelsea Green, opened its first spot in Gulf Shores, AL and the insta-worthy shakes have taken the South by storm.
They just filed permits on Thursday (Dec. 19) with the City of Atlanta to take over space on Marietta Street in the Little Five Points area.
We're (not so patiently) waiting on approval so we can finally indulge in these insanely massive loaded shakes.
They offer over 30 ice cream flavors and over 65 toppings. Talk about tough decisions, but the sky is literally the limit. You can also choose from an extensive list of specialty shakes.
You'll choose your ice cream (up to two if you want to mix and match), choose up to four toppings from a list of 36, and top it off with one of 32 specialty toppings.
We're talking things like cheesecake, brownies, donuts, cookie dough sandwiches, chocolate-dipped s'mores, you name it. Go big or go home.
Shakes typically range from $14 to $20 but if you're a major sugar enthusiast, you may want to fork out $50 to load it up with all your fave toppings.
Fingers crossed that the City of Atlanta approves, but our hopes are high because who wouldn't want to welcome The Yard with open arms?
