Cool and rich

TAKEOUT

June 28, 2006|By SAM SESSA | SAM SESSA,SUN REPORTER

A malted milkshake can cool down the steamiest of summer days. Malts are milkshakes with a spoon or two of malted-milk powder, a dry blend of malted grains and milk, which makes the shakes more rich, thick and sweet. While they're slightly harder to find now than in years past, you can still get malts in the Baltimore area. We sampled three chocolate ones.

BEST SIP

Fields of Pikesville

1401 Reisterstown Road, Pikesville -- 410-486-3300

For a creamier malt, head here. The $4.09 drink had vanilla ice cream, Hershey's chocolate syrup, malt and milk blended together. It was smaller and lighter than the other two, and not quite as sugary, but still enjoyable.
