Crazy Good Milkshakes at Carmelita's Crazy Cravings (with menu)

Mazapan (Left) and Key Lime Pie (right). Both SO Good!

I stumbled across a Facebook ad of Carmelita's Crazy Cravings and was immediately drawn to the pictures of these enticing shakes.  Based on all of the positive comments, I decided to make a trip up from South Reno (23 min.) and try them out.

I got the Key Lime and Mazapan (Mexican peanut candy) flavored milkshakes and they were so satisfying!  

The Key Lime Pie actually tasted like a key lime pie, which made me ask the worker what was in it.  She was very secretive and said, "We put a lot in."  I was so excited that she was so secretive and that she had something pretty special to guard. 

The mazapan milkshake immediately took me back to childhood (in San diego) where de la rosa (Mexican peanut candy) was as easy to find as kit-kat.  I'm usually overwhelmed by the sweetness of the candy, but when combined with milk and ice cream, it was beyond delicious with so much flavor.  

There are so many different flavors of shakes to try and I encourage everyone to try the Mexican flavored ones on top of their favorites.

In addition to milkshakes, they have smoothies, coffee, fruit waters (drinks made with fresh fruits, upon request),  Antijitos (little cravings, street snacks), and Tostilocos (popular antijitos snack consisiting of chips topped with fresh toppings and chili sauce).
