And Ghiradelli is where we’re heading next after learning about a trick we are mad we missed all this time!

Courtesy of Eat It Katie on TikTok, this “hack” allows you to be as creative and individual as you’d like – by creating your very own milkshake.

We all know the excitement of getting a free chocolate square on your entry into Ghiradelli Cafe (pre-pandemic, of course) as you order your favorite sundae or ice cream, but what if these squares could do more?

Well, the “Quake Shake”, as it is known, allows you to select up to THREE different types of chocolate squares and make your own version of their famous milkshake.

Available at both Disney Springs and Disney California Adventure, this off-menu item at Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort is a fun addition to your treat list.

From choices like milk chocolate, milk chocolate caramel, dark chocolate raspberry, and sea salt caramel, the options are endless for what milkshake you can design!

Katie shared this amazing milkshake trick after her trip to Disney’s California Adventure in Anaheim, with the official Disney Parks account reposting her discovery:

Ok here’s the deal. You go to Disney’s California Adventure, right? And you go to Ghiradelli, and you pick up 3 different squares of chocolate. And they will BLEND IT INTO A MILKSHAKE for you! Like, how did I not know about this!?


Thank you @EAT IT KATIE for this milkshake hack ??#Disney #DisneyParks #Disneyland #CaliforniaAdventure #Milkshake #FoodTikTok
