It was a busy day at work and what I needed was to indulge in something sweet. I decided to check out Frozen Bottle, the newly opened thick shake store. I found it tucked in a by-lane of Race Course, and thankfully, it was not crowded. The place was well lit and framed photographs of the shakes hung on the brown walls.

The menu had an array of milkshakes and ice-cream jars with flavours like Kesar Badam, Kiwi Krush, Oreo Cheesecake and Banana Gulkand. They also offered two sugar-free shakes in: Cold Coffee and Nutty Vanilla. After much deliberation, I went for the classic butterscotch milkshake, while my friend chose a Season’s Special Shortcake ice cream jar. “It is mango in this season,” said the person behind the counter, as he took our order.

A filled-to-the-brim glass jar and a bottle arrived at our table without much delay. “These bottles are yours. You can take them with you if you want,” we were informed. My milkshake was thick with a thin layer of froth on top. I took a tentative sip; it had the right amount of sweetness. The ice cream jar had three layers: sponge cake, mango ice-cream and mango pulp. I tried it and was reminded of the fresh fruit. We ordered three milkshakes — Loving Litchi, Spicy Guava and Garden Strawberry — as a take away. The packaging was in glass bottles too and we walked out of the store happily holding on to the pretty bottles.

The litchi shake had a strong flavour of the fruit but was overpoweringly sweet. The Strawberry was nice but just standard; nothing special. The spicy guava was the best where the taste of the fruit could be relished with each sip and that the spiciness of the red chilly lingered as an after taste. It was almost like eating a slice of guava sprinkled with red chilli powder.

As for the empty bottle I took home, a money plant now grows in it; while it graces the kitchen shelf in the home of my friend.


The only downers were the plastic spoons and straws. Steel spoons are an option for the ice cream jars. For those customers who wish to take their bottles away, it would be nice to have a place to rinse them out.
