11. Hot Fudge Malt
> Establishment: Annie’s Parlour
> Location: Minneapolis, Minnesota

Served in a large glass with a canister of leftover shake on the side, Annie’s malts are thick, creamy, and cold. Some people like some banana added to their hot fudge malt, while others are content with just a sprinkling of nutmeg on top.

12. Oreo
> Establishment: Kroll’s Diner
> Location: Fargo and other cities, North Dakota

Oreo cookies are a popular addition to shakes and malts around the country, enhancing them with crumbly chocolate and that dense, sweet cream filling. The old-fashioned “All Shook Up” version here, served in a tall tin cup, is definitive.

13. Coffee Chip
> Establishment: Holsten’s
> Location: Bloomfield, New Jersey

Coffee-lovers will go crazy for this excellent shake, based on homemade ice cream and served in a tall glass mug. In case the interior of this diner looks familiar, by the way, it’s because it was the site of the controversial final scene in “The Sopranos.”

14. Butterscotch Malted
> Establishment: Crown Candy Kitchen
> Location: St. Louis, Missouri

This ivory-hued, caramel-y malt is addictive. No wonder it gets mentioned often as a favorite at this 1913-vintage St. Louis institution.

15. Chocolate Chip
> Establishment: AC Petersen Farm
> Location: West Hartford ond Old Lyme, Connecticut

This intensely chocolatey shake at this 80-year-old ice cream parlor and café is made with Petersen’s own ice cream and syrup, mixed in an old-fashioned Hamilton Beach milkshake machine, and served in a soda fountain glass, accompanied by a metal cup of the overflow.
