Better Burger Chain’s Latest Häagen-Dazs® Shake Available for a Limited Time Only

Smashburger, the rapidly expanding better burger restaurant, introduced today its newest shake to satisfy consumer taste buds – the Mint Oreo shake – available in restaurants for a limited time only. This hand-spun Häagen-Dazs® shake will combine the premium Häagen-Dazs® ice cream blended with fresh mint flavor and Oreo cookies, which is sure to provide a cool treat to pair with one of Smashburger’s premium burgers or chicken sandwiches.

The inspiration behind the tasty addition to the menu comes from Tom Ryan, Founder and Chief Concept Officer wanting to give customers a refreshing treat to welcome the spring season and celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with a flavorful green-hued shake flavor that combines a cool crisp flavor with a chocolate blend.

The Mint Oreo shake is available through end of June and is one of the many shake options available at Smashburger restaurants nationwide. In conjunction with this delicious limited time offering, Smashburger invites guests to enroll in the Smashclub email program and to check out the company’s Facebook page to receive news, offers, and updates on newest products and offerings.

“One of the things our guests love most about Smashburger is our Häagen-Dazs® hand-spun shakes. Customers truly appreciate that we value having a premium ice cream brand like Häagen-Dazs® and offer multiple flavors to pair with their meal,” said Tom Ryan, Founder and Chief Concept Officer for Smashburger. “Our burgers and chicken sandwiches are premium and we wanted nothing less for our shakes. What a better way to top off their meal with a thick and creamy indulgent Häagen-Dazs® shake made with Vanilla bean ice cream and the classic taste of chocolate Oreo cookies with a crisp taste of mint.”

Smashburger’s menu features a variety of customized recipes featuring nationwide favorites as well as regionally inspired burgers that Smashburger creates to fit the taste preferences of the local market. The menu also allows guests to build their own recipe, thanks to its “Create Your Own” offering that makes for a truly customized experience.

Each Smashburger starts with 100 percent fresh, never frozen, Certified Angus Beef that is smashed on a 400-degree flat grill to sear in the juicy flavor. To further the “better burger” experience, the juicy burger is served on a toasted artisan bun and topped with a selection of the freshest produce, real cheeses, and highest-quality condiments. But Smashburger is more than just burgers. Customers can also enjoy a selection of tender marinated grilled or crispy chicken sandwiches, grilled and split hot dogs, and fresh tossed signature salads, along with a variety of irresistible sides including rosemary and garlic–seasoned Smashfries. The restaurant also serves a selection of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages including local craft beers and hand-spun Häagen-Dazs® shakes.
