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.
