Some of our favorite tastes as kids undergo adult makeovers.
While the name HopBunz conjures images of beer and burgers, those who are in the know will think of grown-up custard milkshakes. With four permanent flavors and a flavor of the month, HopBunz has a flavor to satisfy your particular craving. The two most popular shakes are, unsurprisingly, Oatmeal Cookie (vanilla custard, Irish crème, butterscotch and cinnamon liquors and oatmeal cookies) and Bourbon and Caramel (vanilla custard, Jim Beam bourbon and caramel sauce). Strawberry Mudslide and Mint Chocolate round out the regular offerings, while some of the past monthly flavors have been Drunkin’ Pumpkin (vanilla custard, pumpkin, spices and Captain Morgan rum) for the month of October and Caramel Apple (vanilla custard, caramel sauce, Apple Pucker, silver rum and sour apple mix) to celebrate September. Have a different flavor combination in mind? That’s no problem: HopBunz will make a custom made-to-order shake for you with or without alcohol. Who knows? Your creation could become a flavor of the month. 3330 S. Peoria Ave., Tulsa. www.hopbunz.com – Mary Beth Ede
