Burgerville Celebrates Fall Harvest with Introduction of Apple Spice Milkshake
Apple Pie à la Mode in a Cup Promises to be a New Seasonal Favorite
PORTLAND, Ore. (August 30, 2018) –– One of the first signs of fall in the Northwest is fresh, crisp local apples at the farmers market. This September, the Washington Granny Smith apple comes to Burgerville in a new seasonal Apple Spice Milkshake.
Burgerville’s new shake features real ice cream blended with diced and roasted Washington-grown Granny Smith apples and infused with nutmeg, vanilla and cinnamon. Each thick, creamy milkshake is hand-topped with pie crust pieces and real whipping cream to create a sweet, smooth blend of spiced apple pie and ice cream in every bite.
“We wanted to introduce a shake that evokes the delicious flavors of fall, while staying true to our commitment to feature seasonal and local products,” explained Burgerville Chef Becky McGrath. “This treat features apples hand-picked from orchards in Yakima Valley and Walla Walla Valley in Eastern Washington, one of the rare areas in the world that can grow Granny Smith apples. The resulting shake tastes like apple pie à la mode in a cup.”
The apples for Burgerville’s new Apple Spice Milkshake come from orchards like Broetje Orchards, a family-owned and operated organization with more than 6,000 acres of apples and cherries in Washington. Broetje’s philosophy –– which seeks to connect the organization and its employees to a larger purpose of service to others –– mirrors that of Burgerville’s commitment to fresh, local and sustainable values that help people and communities thrive.
Burgerville’s Apple Spice Milkshake will be available from Sept. 1 to Nov. 25 and will cost $4.15 for a small 12-oz. shake, $5.20 for a regular 16-oz. shake, and $5.99 for a large 24-oz. shake. For more information, visit Burgerville.com and follow @Burgerville on social media.
