I'd come up with a catchier headline...but I'm too busy drooling!
Back when I lived in Chicago, I used to frequent Potbelly Sandwich Works. For those unfamiliar with Potbelly, it's a Chicago-based chain now opening shop in a growing number of cities. Unfortunately, Atlanta is not included in that list of cities, but I digress...
While I was always a big fan of Potbelly's chicken salad sammich, I mostly stopped in for their absolutely fabulous oreo malt. To this day, I often find myself jonesing for the malt. That craving has been particularly brutal the past two weeks, thanks to the 90-plus degree weather. By the way, if you live anywhere near a Potbelly, make sure to check it out. It's tasty and cheap and provides a quality alternative to many of the other subway chains.
So why am I telling you all of this? Because I think I may have finally found a substitute for my beloved oreo malt. I just saw a German Chocolate Shake recipe (you heard me - GERMAN CHOCOLATE!!) on the Internet and am itching to go home and try it out. If you're a fan of chocolate, milk, coconut, pecans and Splenda, you might want to bust out the blender for this one!
