    So, if you get, say, a chocolate shake with whipped cream on top, do you mix the cream in with the shake before you suck it out the straw or do you wait till the last minute and suck out pure whipped cream?

    I think about this a lot🙂

    Seems a waste if you do the former so my vote goes for the latter, please. Actually maybe even a better thing would be to ask the clerk to just put the whipped cream directly into you mouth, especially fun if it's from one of those "shake and dispense cans.

    "The Difference between a Milkshake and a Frappe" (by Aimee Seavey)

    "According to the American Heritage College Dictionary, a milkshake is a “a beverage that is made of milk, ice cream, and often flavoring and is blended or whipped until foamy.” Unless you live in New England, where a milkshake would never include ice cream. Adding ice cream makes it a “frappe.” http://www.yankeemagazine.com/article/new-england-101/milk-shakes-frappes-cabinets#_

    Sorry, but where I come from, if it doesn't have ice cream, you better not call it a mlkshake.

    And at the risk of sounding boring, I never put whipped cream in a milkshake.

    In New England the name for a "milkshake" is a Frappe (or a Cabinet)
    both of which have ice cream; simply a regional difference in words.

    I used to see in old time movies a referral to 'make mine malted' which I assume would be ice cream, milk and some kind of malt flavoring. I haven't seen much of that at any restaurant I have gone to like Friendlies or Chilies or some such.

    Make a milkshake without icecream in Australia and you'd be prosecuted for mislabelling.
