I considered titling this post “My Milkshake Brings All the Boys to the Yard”, but alas, I cannot take credit for these incredible creations thus they are not “my” milkshakes, nor were they enjoyed in a yard, mine or otherwise, and sadly, no boys arrived to enjoy a milkshake with us. C’est la vie! Anyway, neither my husband nor I have a very big sweet tooth (sweet teeth?), but every now and then we come across a dessert that’s so unique, and so out there that we have to try it, and these milkshakes were exactly that. Boasting more than 106,000 “likes” on Facebook, M Street bakery, located in the small town of Howell, Michigan, has been gaining national attention for their wild, over the top confections, so we knew we had to go check them out for ourselves!

Reminiscent of Peace Treats in Toronto, Black Tap in New York City, and Las Locas Malteadas de Carranza in Querétaro, these milkshakes were positively massive! I ordered the S’mores flavor, and Robin ordered the Fruity Pebbles milkshake. The S’mores version has a hand dipped chocolate rim, chocolate syrup inside, a mini-cupcake on a stick, an entire graham cracker, lots of whipped cream, toasted marshmallows on a stick, a piece of Hershey’s chocolate, and toasted marshmallow flavored milkshake. The cup was about halfway full with milkshake, and the rest of the way full with thick, homemade whipped cream, and it was topped with chocolate sauce, and edible golden glitter.
The Fruity Pebbles milkshake was similar in that it had a hand dipped, vanilla flavored rim covered in fruity pebbles, a fruity pebble milkshake base filled about half way, topped with whipped cream, a mini-cupcake on a stick, an entire donut that was also topped with fruity pebbles, half of a sprinkle covered strawberry Pop-Tart, and more whipped cream. His also had golden edible glitter, but not nearly as much as mine had.
I can’t eat gluten, so I gave my cupcake and graham cracker to robin, who promptly added them to his own milkshake to make a “super massive milkshake” as he called it haha. I think I got about 5-6 sips into the milkshake before I had to give up, it was SO sweet (duh, it’s a milkshake haha), but it was SO good! Robin made a valiant effort to finish his, but he only got about half way through the milkshake itself, ate both mini-cupcakes (he said they were incredible), and had a bite of the donut before he too had to admit defeat. Even if we would had shared one milkshake, we still wouldn’t have been able to finish it.
The bakery also makes custom cakes & cupcakes, edible cookie dough, incredible pita breads, buns, knots, pies, bagels, cinnamon rolls, caramel apples, brownies, baklava, cannoli, cookies, cake pops, puddings, and SO much more. If you’re in need of specialty, baked goods, this will become your new favorite spot to buy from.
So, the moral of this story is that if you live anywhere near, or plan to visit anywhere near Howell, MI, you need to get a few friends/loved ones, or a massive sugar craving, and head straight to M Street Baking Company to try these incredible, aesthetically pleasing milkshakes as soon as possible!
