Burger King has outdone itself once again with a holiday-themed dessert: the Peppermint Oreo Shake. (It’s already better than last month’s terrifying Nightmare King sandwich!)
Here’s why we’re all clamoring for an Oreo-studded peppermint shake:
The Peppermint Oreo Shake is hand spun from Burger King’s velvety soft serve, peppermint syrup and real Oreo cookie pieces and then topped with a dollop of whipped topping.
By the way, Burger King has the fastest drive-thru in the country—so even though that Peppermint Oreo Shake is made to order, you’ll still get the goods fast. It takes only 3-ish minutes for BK customers to place and receive an order, on average. (Here’s how the other fast food chains stacked up.)
It tastes like Christmas
It’s not Christmas without candy canes! Burger King has added peppermint to its original Oreo Shake, and its pretty, pink color reminds us of the swirls in that red and white candy.

It’s super-thick for a fast food shake!
It goes without saying that a homemade shake is the Holy Grail of milkshakes (here’s how to make the perfect one at home), because you can make your shake super-thick. But a quick slurp reveals that Burger King’s Peppermint Oreo Shake is unusually thick. You’ll probably want to grab a spoon as well as a straw when you order!
