Could you take on these giant, calorie-laden milkshakes, topped with doughnuts, brownies, Bakewell slices and even a Devon cream tea?

Monstrous morphed milkshakes overflowing with cream, cakes, syrup and sprinkles – the worldwide craze of ‘freakshakes’ has officially come to Barnstaple.

Tooters Diner, situated in Jewsons’ car park in Seven Brethren, is offering up the gluttonous, calorie-laden treat.

Originally invented in Australia, the freakshake has been going down a storm with customers since Tooters’ owners Sharon Neve and Elaine Geraghty introduced them to the menu last week.

It is made up of a thick ice-cream milkshake brimming with all sorts of treats, from doughnuts and peanut butter cups, to brownie and gluten-free Bakewell slices.

Sharon said: “My son lives in London and that’s where I got the idea from; everything always takes so long to reach North Devon.

“We started doing them on Friday and they have been so popular we’ve ended up staying open an hour later than usual most days.

“I absolutely love making them and seeing people’s faces light up when I bring them out.”

Other popluar items on the diner’s American-themed menu include the Route 66 Burger, complete with maple syrup, bacon rashers, and a doughnut.

Freakshakes are served at Tooters, Mon-Fri, 11.30am-2.30pm.
