Burger King’s New Oreo Cookie Peppermint Shake Is The Fast-Food Holiday Treat We ALL Need

Have we all recovered from Burger King’s ~very~ exciting Return of The Cini Minis news? Okay, good. Brace yourself again, folks, because BK just debuted another dessert that will make the holiday season even sweeter. The brand new Oreo Cookie Peppermint Shake hit menus yesterday, and it sounds like the ultimate wintery sweet treat.

According to Burger King’s website, the new shake is blended with vanilla soft serve, Oreo cookie pieces, and peppermint syrup. It’s topped with whipped cream before being handed to your very eager hands. I would 100 percent get a brain freeze while sipping gulping one of these down.

The Oreo peppermint shake will be available through the end of the year, so you have about a month to try it! The recommended price is $3.29. Definitely worth it (especially if you’re taking advantage of BK’s $1 ten-piece chicken nuggets). Dinner AND dessert for less than $5. I’ll take it.
