a fun take on valentine’s day…

I’ll admit, this post is a departure from my previous post on art history and culture, experienced within the beautiful walls of the Getty Villa.

But honestly, this shake video was SO FUN to make!

Tastemade is at it again, taking their Slacker shake and turning it on its head to create a Hacker shake just in time for Valentines Day.

“Make a shake using Valentine’s Day conversation hearts,” said the powers-that-be, and so we went to work creating this doozy of a combination. Spending several days creating and taste-testing milkshakes is a rough job, but someone has to do it! It’s true, it took a few no-so-pretty versions before we chose the final version…mixing orange and green hearts does not produce a pretty (or tasty) milkshake…but the final product is a sight to be seen. Eric (director) and Emily (producer) came up with the idea of adding crushed purple hearts to the whipped cream. I admit, I was skeptical at first but it was truly worth all the trouble of using the whipped cream charger. Grinding the purple hearts down to a dust that could be mixed into the cream and then figuring out how to use the nitrous cartridges the right way (there might have been a purple explosion before we mastered it) resulted in something beautiful AND delicious!

I hope you enjoy the video…and have a happy Valentine’s Day!
