Libby's Pumpkin Milkshake Is Back at Shake Shack
Every year, when fall baking season rolls around, discussion ensues about what brand of pumpkin puree filling is best, and is it worth it to make your own? (Spoiler alert: rarely, and maybe only if there's a canned pumpkin shortage.) The answer, every time, is Libby's 100% Pure Pumpkin. Why? Because the flavor is consistent, the quality is high, and the results are dependable.
Which is why it comes as no surprise that when Shake Shack was looking for a base for their seasonal pumpkin shake, they looked to Libby's. Made with a base of vanilla custard and blended with cinnamon, nutmeg, and marshmallow, the Libby's Pumpkin Shake has the familiar flavor of pumpkin pie that we start craving this time of year.
All of Libby's pumpkin puree comes from Illinois farmers, growers who've been producing pumpkins just for Libby's for generations. Indeed, the pumpkins you find in your cans came from within a few miles of the factory. Once they're picked and packed for shipping, they head down the road where they're processed and canned quickly so the flavor you get is as close to perfect as possible.
The shake is topped with whipped cream (duh) and a sprinkling of toasted pumpkin seeds, for a little added crunch. Shakes Shack describes the flavor as fall in a cup, a fan-favorite flavor that will only be around for a few months. Head to a Shake Shack near you to get one, and don't forget to order ahead through Shake Shack's convenient online ordering system.
