Today Twisted Root announced its new shake, a decadent treat that channels the King himself, Elvis Presley. The shake blends 12 ounces of Twisted Root’s creamy homemade vanilla custard with Dude, Sweet Chocolate’s Tub of Love spread; a combination of peanut butter, dark chocolate and banana; for a rich and delicious combination of Elvis’s favorite things. And for a little something extra, it has even more fresh sliced banana and two heaping scoops of Twisted Root’s roasted peanut and bacon mixture mixed in.
In creating the shake, Twisted Root owner Jason Boso called upon Dallas’s premiere chocolatier, Katherine Clapner of Dude, Sweet Chocolate fame, and he hinted that this is the first of many future collaborations for the dynamic duo.
“Love, love, love Twisted Root, and all they do.” said Clapner. “When Jason called and we talked milk shakes, I, of course, was totally in. How can you not want to throw a little bit of Elvis at some ice cream?”
“We’re so happy to collaborate with such a talented artisan like Katherine,” said Boso. “It’s an honor to see how many people are really embracing our fun shakes, and we hope to keep pushing the envelope with new offerings from Dude, Sweet Chocolate.”
The Big Fat Elvis costs $6.99, big enough for two people or one late Elvis sized person, and is available for purchase now at all Twisted Root locations.
