Shake It Up

Need a sugar rush to keep up with the kiddos? Order a classic Bassett’s ice cream shake at Frog Burger outside of The Franklin Institute or one served by a soda jerk at the old-timey Franklin Fountain. Scoop DeVille makes them with fat-free fro-yo, sugar-free ice cream or old-fashioned ice cream, and the star at Franklin Square’s SquareBurger is the Cake Shake, made with Tastykakes.
