A shake with a bit of a pop!

What better way to celebrate America's birthday than with a giant boozy milkshake that pops in your mouth? Wait... let us rephrase that. Celebrate the 4th of July with an extra boozy, Pop Rocks-infused milkshake! Uncle Sam will totally approve.

Forget sangria or beer and serve an entire tray of these popping, rich and fruity firecracker shakes at your big 4th of July shindig! The Pop Rocks pop after each sip, giving these shakes a fun firecracker quality.
