Cereal and milk for breakfast is one thing, but cereal and ice cream is another. It's way better. Er, freakier. We don't play around with our monthly frappe specials, and this on is sure to give you a [Rice Krispies] treat. Here's how to make it at home. That is, if you're crazy enough not to be running to one of the restaurants to suck one down.

Ingredients:

  • 8 oz. vanilla ice cream
  • 6 oz. whole milk
  • vanilla frosting
  • 1/2 cup Fruity Pebbles
  • 1 Rice Krispies treat
  • strawberry puree
  • whipped cream

Directions:

  1.  Coat top two inches of a pint glass with vanilla frosting. Don't be afraid to lay it on thick. Toss some Fruity Pebbles on a plate, then roll frosted glass onto sprinkles to coat rim. Repeat if necessary. The more, the better!
  2. In a blender, whip ice cream, milk, and a handful of Fruity Pebbles. Blend for 1 minute or until smooth. 
  3. Drizzle inside of pint glass with strawberry syrup. Pour frappe in glass.
  4. Spread vanilla frosting on one side of the Rice Krispies treat. Roll onto Fruity Pebbles to coat. Place on top of the glass, or use a skewer to add it as a garnish. Top with whipped cream and extra Fruity Pebbles. Slurp, slurp, ENJOY!!!

We're running this special through May. Do NOT miss it!!

Move Over Shamrock Shake - THIS Is The Ultimate Boozy St. Patrick's Day #FreakFrappe

Today's post brought to you today by Christina Orso, Marketing Director, food blogger, and chocolate connoisseur.

If you're a fan of Boston Burger Company, you already know we take what ordinary people do and make it bigger. Bigger, better, and tastier. Have you SEEN our burgers? They're large.

Last year we took it upon ourselves to increase the size of something else. No, no, get your head out of the gutter. We're talking about milkshakes. Frappes if you're in New England -- get it right before you order one. Whether you're vanilla or you're chocolate, or somewhere in the twisted middle, we have a frappe for you. 

And while we have our core list of frappes at all three restaurants, we also have a rotating monthly special that'll make your eyes bug out. You'll stare at it in disbelief. You'll drool a little. Then you'll hop on the T and make your way over because there's just no way you're not tasting this.

Our March special is what we consider a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. With a hell of a lot more green than that meteorological phenomenon people seem to lose their shit over. Get your tastebuds ready, because we're about to Shamrock Your World.

Ingredients:

  • 8 oz. vanilla ice cream
  • 6 oz. whole milk
  • 5 peppermint patties
  • mint-flavored vodka, if you like to get weird
  • chocolate syrup
  • green food coloring
  • green frosting (or use vanilla with 2 drops of green food coloring mixed in)
  • Lucky Charms cereal
  • green sugar/sprinkles
  • a slice of Irish Cream Mousse Cake
  • Whipped cream

Directions:

  1.  Coat top two inches of a pint glass with green frosting. Don't be afraid to lay it on thick. Pour some Lucky Charms onto a flat plate then roll frosted rim around to coat with cereal. Add pieces by hand if necessary. Layer it up!!
  2. In a blender, whip ice cream, milk, peppermint patties, 2 drops of green food coloring, and booze if you decided to get weird. Blend for 1 minute or until smooth. 
  3. Drizzle inside of pint glass with chocolate syrup. Pour frappe in glass, leaving about 1/4 inch unfilled. Fill remainder with whipped cream.
  4. Place a slice of Irish Cream Mousse Cake. Add more whipped cream because why not. Sprinkle with sugar and drizzle with more chocolate syrup. Slurp, slurp, ENJOY!!!

Hint hint: St. Paddy's Day is on Friday. We party hard in Boston. You can drink your green beer, or you can drink this. Or both... See ya at the BBC.

5 Ways BBC Can Solve your Election Blues this November

The 2016 election seems like a no win situation but hey, not everyone has to lose. In the #BBCBurgerLab you can win all day, everyday especially with our new fall goodies. Here are 5 ways BBC can cure your election PTSD and unlike the others, they will never disappoint.

 1. The American Hero Frappe: Ditch those hot messes and join the #freakfrappeparty...it is guaranteed to be very sweet. Our new candidate is dressed in patriotic sprinkles, American flag swag and Twizzlers that will automatically brighten up your day. AND you get the choice between vanilla or strawberry ice cream. Talk about home of the free and the brave. Come in with an "I Voted" sticker, get some dollars off (you deserve it). And while you're at it...thank the veterans who served our country all of these years.

2.  Fall Sangria: We just sent out a fall sangria recipe that is so good, you'll be #wining until you get it next. Throw your P.J.s on and brew up a batch for this coming weekend. You might REALLY need it.

3. We'll bring you to Hawaii: Alright, don't be greedy. We can't send you overseas but how about we bring the vacation to you? BurgaBox just launched a November feast and it is a Hula dance in a box. After you cook up the Maui Waui Burgers, Aloha Fries and Don Ho Mac & Cheese, all of your holiday problems will wash away into the sunset, with a coconut drink in hand. You have until November 10th to order this baby. So just do it.

4. Focus on the Snacks: More people will watch the Super Bowl than vote in this election. Therefore, it looks like our priorities are in the snacks and we have a long list that will score with any Sunday football crowd. 

5. You can just vote for usDon't get stressed over this impossible decision. In our poll, you get to choose the real Hot Mess you want to vote for in this election. 

 

Now do you want to escape to another country? Yeah...we knew you would change your mind.
