My wife is a Diet Coke fanatic, so I took her with me to test out the new Diet Coke Cherry Slurpee at 7-Eleven. More

We Try the New Chocolate-Covered Strawberry Frappé From McDonald's

Fast Food Drinks Erin Jackson 3 comments

The newest frappé at McDonald's features a chocolate and coffee base that's buzzed up with ice, strawberry-flavored syrup, and chocolate chips, then topped with whipped cream and strawberry drizzle. We stopped in to test it out. More

We Try the New Red Velvet Latte at Dunkin' Donuts

Fast Food Drinks Liz Clayton 2 comments

Instead of seeing the Dunkin Donuts Red Velvet Latte as a coffee drink with flavor syrup in it, I prefer to look at it as a pink hot chocolate with caffeine. See how easy that was? More

Fast Food Drinks Adam Lindsley 1 comment

Cinnabon's new limited-edition Salted Caramel Chillatta brings the salty dessert trend into the beverage world surprisingly well. More

Fast Food Drinks Adam Lindsley Post a comment

Just in time for a record-breaking ascent into high summer temperatures, mall cinnamon roll hawker Cinnabon joins the Reese's craze with the limited-time-only Peanut Butter Cup Chillatta, the latest in its line of sweetened iced beverages. More

We Try the New McDonald's Dulce de Leche Caramel Shake

Fast Food Drinks Hayley Daen 7 comments

The name really should've tipped us off, with two super-sugary confections named smack dab in center of the title. This new milkshake from McDonald's is sweet. More

We Try the New McCafé Blueberry Pomegranate Smoothie from McDonald's

Fast Food Drinks Craig Cavallo 7 comments

The new drink is an icy blend of blueberries and raspberries that we found quite refreshing, if a bit thick and weighty should you get the optional dose of yogurt (we did). More

We Try Cinnabon's Limited-Edition Oreo Mint Chillatta

Fast Food Drinks Adam Lindsley 5 comments

Just in time to compete with McDonald's Shamrock Shake and Dunkin' Donuts' Lucky Mint Coolatta for your neon-green-tinted-drink dollars, Cinnabon is rolling out its limited-time-only Oreo Mint Chillatta. It's a frozen beverage that looks just like a shake but does not at all drink like one. More

We Try the Lucky Mint Coolatta at Dunkin' Donuts

Fast Food Drinks Craig Cavallo Post a comment

When it comes to sweet, minty, St. Patrick's Day-inspired fast food drinks, most folks channel their excitement toward the Shamrock Shake from McDonald's. But the new Lucky Mint Coolatta ($3 for a small, pictured) from Dunkin' Donuts gives that green drink a run for its money. More

We Try Burgerville's Chocolate Hazelnut Milkshake

Fast Food Drinks Adam Lindsley 2 comments

Something about Nutella makes even the most mild mannered horf it down in an animalistic frenzy. And while Pacific Northwest-based Burgerville isn't using any actual Nutella here, the spirit of the transcendent spread is alive and well in the chain's delicious seasonal Chocolate Hazelnut Milkshake. More

Reality Check: New Holiday Shakes at Steak 'n Shake

Fast Food Drinks Erin Jackson 5 comments

Steak 'n Shake recently released a trio of new shakes for the holiday season: egg nog, white chocolate, and peppermint chocolate chip. We tried them all. Though these shakes don't make quite the same impression as in the beauty shot, they are some pretty excellent milkshakes. More

We Try Arby's Peppermint Stick Swirl Shake

Fast Food Drinks Adam Lindsley 3 comments

Arby's may be known for its fast-food roast beef sandwiches, but that hasn't stopped the national chain from getting in the holiday spirit of things with its new Peppermint Stick Swirl Shake. More

We Try Burgerville's Pumpkin Milkshake

Fast Food Drinks Adam Lindsley 2 comments

Burgerville sources their pumpkins from Stahlbush Island Farms in Corvallis, Oregon, located 80 miles south of Portland. Because pureed pumpkin reaches a much smoother consistency than, say, blackberries or raspberries, this is Burgerville's easiest-drinking seasonal shake yet. For lovers of milkshakes and pumpkin + spice, Burgerville's fall seasonal shake is an easy recommendation. More

We Try Burgerville's Fresh Blackberry Shake

Fast Food Drinks Adam Lindsley Post a comment

With strawberries and raspberries under its belt, Burgerville closes out its summer milkshake series with a fruit that almost anyone living in the Pacific Northwest can find growing in their backyard: blackberries. More

Why Sonic's Cherry Limeade Is The Best

Fast Food Drinks J. Kenji López-Alt 44 comments

Where I grew up, the Sonic chain of drive-in fast food burger restaurants was thin on the ground. New York is not exactly a city with a car culture. So I was a bit slow to get onto the Sonic Cherry Limeade boat, but now that I'm aboard, I can say with reckless abandon that it is truly the king of fast food soft drinks. More

We Try Burgerville's Fresh Raspberry Milkshake

Fast Food Drinks Adam Lindsley 4 comments

Burgerville's second seasonal shake of the summer features loads of fresh-picked Oregon raspberries. The result, while mildly tasty, is somewhat of a paradox: a milkshake packed to the gills with straw-clogging lumps of fruit but a weak overall raspberry flavor. More

We Try the New Chocolate Chip Frappé at McDonald's

Fast Food Drinks Gracie Dulik 1 comment

Here at Serious Eats HQ, we took a taste of the new McCafé Chocolate Chip Frappé currently being offered for a limited time by those unavoidable golden arches. More

We Try Burgerville's Fresh Strawberry Milkshake

Fast Food Drinks Adam Lindsley 5 comments

The latest seasonal milkshake from Burgerville, a chain of fast-food restaurants in the Pacific Northwest, features fresh, locally grown strawberries and ice cream from a Portland dairy. We gave it a try to see if it was worth waiting a year for those fresh berries. More

We Try the New Cherry Berry Chiller at McDonald's

Fast Food Drinks John M. Edwards 7 comments

You know how when you're having a bad day, you're likely to hate whatever you come across? A wrong-way-over-the-bridge day, can't-believe-this-traffic day? When you're in that sort of mood, you're not exactly predisposed to love whatever's handed to you at the rest stop McDonald's. But the Cherry Berry Chiller I had this weekend was surprisingly good. More

We Try the New Slurpee Lite Fanta Sugar-Free Mango from 7-Eleven

Fast Food Drinks Molly Goldman 10 comments

It's hard to resist a Slurpee in the summer time, even if you're not a high school kid hanging around in the 7-Eleven parking lot. I'm drawn to the onomatopoeic name and its natural association with Bart Simpson. But does the world need a diet Slurpee? Just in time for the warm months, 7-Eleven has unleashed Slurpee Lite, a sugar-free frozen beverage with half the calories of your run of the mill Wild Cherry Slurpee. Today I sampled the Slurpee Lite Fanta Sugar-Free Mango, May's signature flavor. More
