Through June 26th, Krispy Kreme Donuts will be churning out an Oreo cookie shake they call the Cookies and Kreme Chiller. It's blended smooth and not too thickā€”the resulting color is a bit gray, as you might expect. On top is a pillowy layer of whipped cream capped by small, crisp Oreo chunks. The contrast in textures is the highlight of the drink; perhaps we should just order a big cup of whipped cream and cookie bits.

The cookie wafers that make up the exterior of Oreos aren't crazy-sweet, but the interiors are, and the body of this milkshake was more like the latter than the former. It's almost like drinking chilled powdered-sugar icing. Unless you have a serious sweet tooth, stick to the small size.

$2.79 for 12 ounces, $3.79 for 20 ounces, prices may vary by location.
