The dog days of summer are approaching fast, what better way to enjoy the hot summer day with a milkshake? The milkshake is the darling of summer. They go with each other, like hot dogs and baseball, or, peanut butter and jelly.

One of the best places around the Triangle to get a milkshake is Cook Out. With more than 45 flavors offered, any conversation about Cook Out involves a conversation (and sometimes lively debate) about the best one. 

Below are our five favorite shakes at Cook Out:

Double Chocolate - Chocolate fans rejoice! This milkshake combines the crucial ingredients of chocolate, and MORE chocolate (just in case one dose of chocolate wasn’t enough). It is for the die-hard chocolate lover, and can be the perfect ending to anyone’s day.

Oreo - Hidden under the guise of “Oreo,” this milkshake shares many resemblances with the classic flavor of Cookies and Cream. It doesn’t matter what it is called, it still tastes delicious every time.

Vanilla -  A classic. It is one of the first flavors to be offered for milkshakes and is still going strong today. Some people would like to opt out of all the confusing ingredients of the other shakes to enjoy this oldie – but – goodie flavor.


And we looked into our pet photo archives and turns out humans aren't the only ones who enjoy Cook Out milkshakes:
