Gladstone's best 'loaded milkshakes', as voted by locals
GLADSTONE residents love their loaded milkshakes.
A loaded milkshake makes a chocolate thickshake look like the boring step-cousin.
It's dribbling with sauce, topped with cream, ice cream and more sweets and sometimes even doughnuts.
This week we asked our Facebook "likers" to vote for their favourite place to grab a milkshake in Gladstone.
Chattin Cafe received the most votes, famous for its loaded shakes.
The cafe had a narrow lead over Calliope's The Empty Plate; another eatery famous for the over-the-top drinks.
But these next-level milkshakes aren't for everyone.
Some people commented, "Do people actually drink these?"
Another woman said, "My diabetes would be having a party".
Residents who enjoy the taste of a milkshake but not the added calories of the extras of a loaded drink voted for Chillaxing.
The Gladstone Square cafe offers "feel-good smoothies".
The cafe also offers protein shakes.
