18. Dutchman Delight Concrete
> Establishment: Ted Drewes
> Location: St. Louis, Missouri

Regular shakes and malts are available at this Gateway City mainstay, but the signature offerings are the concretes — versions so thick they won’t fall out of the cup if it’s turned upside down. The extravagant Dutchman Delight version combines chocolate, butterscotch, and pecans.

19. Passion Fruit
> Establishment: Robert Is Here
> Location: Homestead, Florida

Reviewers love the key lime milkshake at this fruit stand and farm on the edge of the Everglades, but the fragrantly tropical passion fruit shake — one of the many varieties the place makes from its own farm-grown fruit — is unusual and particularly tasty. Like all the shakes, it’s served in a 100% biodegradable corn-based plastic cup.

20. Nutella
> Establishment: Tolly Ho
> Location: Lexington, Kentucky

In Lexington, says Spoon University, “no night out is complete without a classic Tolly milkshake.” Nutella is a popular shake flavoring all over the country, and Tolly Ho makes a particularly memorable version of the specialty.
