The freakshake phenomenon first took off last summer when Pâtissez, a bakery and café in Canberra, Australia, introduced milkshake-filled mason jars, topped high with whipped cream, pretzels, marshmallows, and even whole brownies and pecan pie. The decadent desserts, which the restaurant dubbed “Freakshows,” quickly went viral, drawing hours-long lines. Pâtissez has maintained its reputation as a must-visit dessert destination by introducing new flavors and expanding its selection of elaborate cakes that overflow with toppings, too. Inevitably, its viral popularity has influenced bakeries around the world, who have since added freakshakes to their menus.
