For years, loyal Five Guys fans have begged for milkshakes, but the company — motto: “Always Fresh. Never Frozen.” — has always demurred. In 2010, owner Jerry Murrell explained, “If we put one frozen thing in our restaurant, we’d be done. That’s why we won’t do milk shakes. For years, people have been asking for them! But we’d have to do real ice cream and real milk.” Well, Reddit user petruchi41 posts an invitation from the Five Guys in Huntington Station, Long Island, about an hour outside the city, to get a sneak peek this Saturday at “our long awaited milk shakes!!” Lo and behold, the Five Guys website now also has this tidbit on its FAQ page: “We are testing a milkshake in select stores in the New York/NJ market in 2014.” [Reddit]
