These decadent New York milkshakes have taken the internet by storm

They’re borderline impractical. But they look so good.

WHILE DUBLIN HAS its fair share of delish places that do their own decadent milkshakes, we have to go across to New York to find the cutting edge.

And people can’t get enough of the over-the-top creations of a burger place called Black Tap.

Look at them

This week has seen the place explode on social media – getting coverage from People, ABC, Buzzfeed and First We Feast.

They’re absolute monsters – and the queues are out the door

As the owner told ABC, it all started a couple of months ago with a simple request:

One day my wife wanted me to make her a cotton candy milkshake, so I whipped something up, put it on Instagram and the rest is history

A change from their regular burger requests, the milkshakes took off

Not only are they huge, but they are stacked with extras on top

It’s essentially milkshake porn

With full biscuits on top

They even make birthday cake milkshakes with a full slice of cake on top

No wonder it’s become an absolute phenomenon
