Which would you rather have: a milkshake or ice cream?

Let's be real, few are picky when it comes to ice cream, but everyone has their preference. Milkshakes remind some of diners and drive-ins; they can be both nostalgic and incredibly creative, and their slurp-ability is its own reward. Ice cream, on the other hand, must be savored, and some would simply prefer a spoon over a straw. When it comes to toppings and flavors, both milkshakes and ice cream pack their own punch, but which is truly the superior dessert?

Milkshakes may just be blended ice cream and milk, but they are far superior to their ice cream base. The milkshake is everything you need in one—it is your dessert, your french-fry dipping sauce and your beverage. Because of this, there's no need to wait when it comes to milkshakes. You can sit down at your local diner, order your burger, your fries and your shake all at once. 

You get all of this in one large glass, leaving little mess or clean up, unlike melty ice cream cones. Plus, as HerCampus puts it: 

Straws are cute, colorful, and require less energy than spoons do.

From Chick-fil-A's cookies-and-cream milkshakes to a Wendy's Frosty, these are incredible creations, therefore milkshakes are undoubtedly superior to ice cream.

Name one time when ice cream let you down. It's simply impossible. There's no need to turn what is already a perfect, refreshing and indulgent dessert into a creamy beverage; ice cream is everything you could ever want already. 

Sure, milkshakes may offer variety when it comes to flavors, but Steak 'n Shakes' menu doesn't even come close to the endless shelves of ice cream flavors at the grocery store. From your classics like mint chocolate chip and chocolate chip cookie dough, to your gourmet Talenti gelato, there is a type of ice cream for every mood and every day of the year. As The Odyssey says: 

What do suffering through a heart break and winning a championship ball game have in common? Ice cream. It makes the bad times more bearable and the good times even better.

Whether your prefer it in a cup or a cone, as a sandwich or as a float, ice cream can be catered to fit your needs—no equipment (or blenders) necessary.
