its official protea hotel fire & ice melrose arch has joburgs best shakes

​Jozi’s “go to” place for everything hip and happening in the City of Gold has officially named the milkshakes at the Protea Hotel Fire & Ice! Melrose Arch the best in Joburg., an online publication that is emailed to 184 000 subscribers per week, recently established the Joburg’s Choice Awards, which aims to find the very best that Joburg has to offer – from croissants and cappuccinos to child-friendly venues and sundowners-with-a-view. Readers were invited to nominate venues or products in a specific category and the Joburg TEAM ploughed through them all to find those that stand out from the rest.
A very proud, but not terribly surprised Protea Hotel Fire & Ice! Melrose Arch GM Anton Gillis, said the hotel’s milkshake bar is one of its most popular attractions.
“Our shakes are different, inventive, interesting and have some very funky flavour combinations like Pumpkin and Marshmallow,” said Gillis. “They are thick, creamy and very, very more-ish.”
The hotel has two ranges of milkshakes – the “nice” ones that are non-alcoholic, and the “naughty” ones that include, among others, the Caramel Dare (with caramel vodka), Patronage (with a shot of Patron) and Elephant’s Trunk (with Amarula).
The “nice” shakes include the Big Blue (blueberries and cream), Aero Attack (with Aero chocolate) and Peanana Nutter (with peanuts and banana butter). had this to say about the hotel’s  milkshakes: “As predicted by so many of you, Protea Hotel Fire & Ice! Melrose Arch was the winner of our milkshake search! Not only did they have interesting flavours like pumpkin and marshmallow and Patron, but they were creamy and delicious! If you go to them for your fix, it comes in a giant bowl-like glass with the elaborate garnishing like whole Ferrero Rocher! If you have a sweet tooth or need brownie points from someone who does, you need to try these out.”
Gillis said to celebrate the award, the hotel had a special offer on its non-alcoholic milkshakes from 6 June, 2012, to 6 July, 2012.
“We will give two free non-alcoholic milkshakes (of the same size, but different flavours) to anyone who buys two milkshakes over the course of the month. It’s our way of saying thank you to the GUESTS and CLIENTS who nominated our milkshakes for this award.”
