Many people say that a picture speaks a thousand words. And, as I stare longingly at Stray Dogs Instagram
account, I can definitely relate. As the age of Instagram has taken over life as we know it, I constantly find myself scrolling through the popular page on my feed to see what is out there. As a lover of fashion myself, I always thought that a great pair of shoes would be the only thing I would be lusting after. Who knew that I could have so many feeling about a picture of food.
As social media has grown, different items of food have taken the spotlight. We all remember the cronut, circa 2013, that swept the nation with its perfect combination of croissant and doughnut. Or, the health craze that flooded the last two years with pressed juices and kale smoothies. But now in 2016, it is time for a different cuisine to take the stage, and this one might a little familiar.
It is something that we have all had growing up, that just seemed like just another sweet treat. But, for some reason this year, there is much more to a milkshake then most of us could ever imagine.
With places like Black Tap in New York City becoming famous by constantly posting extravagant pictures of their milkshakes, the rest of the nation has taken note and is following suit.
A perfect example of that is right here in Tucson, Arizona. Stray Dogs opened early 2016. In the short time it has been open it has garnered much media attention, especially because of its over the top milkshakes. With things like doughnuts, Rice Krispies, and cookies attached to the top, these milkshakes are far from ordinary. And, even though the restaurant serves things other than milkshakes, the sweet treats are what keep people coming back for more.
Stray Dogs is located at 78 W River Rd. and is open daily from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Make sure to stop on in and taste the hype for yourself.
