The freakshake fever has hit India and it doesn't look like anyone wants to be cured of it. What's a freakshake, you ask? If an ice-cream sundae, a milkshake, a doughnut, a brownie, a few nuts, some syrup and a lot of sprinkles had a party, a freakshake is what it would look like. Every cafe serving this monstrous dessert-cum-beverage has its own recipes. Freakshakes look like knockouts and going by reviews, they taste like it too. Want to know where you can try a fantastic freakshake in your city? We'll help you out!

Where: J 2/5, 3rd & 4th Floor, B.K. Dutt Market, Rajouri Garden, Delhi

The Vintage Avenue
When: 11am to 11pm

145 Kala Ghoda
When: Noon to 1:30am
Where: 145, Kala Ghoda, Fort
Lowdown: A great place to drop by after work for dinner is 145 Kala Ghoda. Their food is delicious, but you're really there for their freakshakes: bourbon, peanut butter, mighty Oreo, red velvet and more.
When: 1pm to 5pm, 7pm to 11pm
Where: 19, Church Street
Lowdown: Brik Oven is a little café-style eatery offering a whole lot of pizzas. The more interesting part though is their milkshakes. The big bang and cookie monster iterations particularly live up to their high-impact names.
When: 9am to 11pm
Where: 1, Bright Farm, Thubarahalli, Varthur Road, Whitefield
Lowdown: This lovely alfresco cafe in Whitefield will make your day with their breakfast dishes and sandwiches. Wash it all down with one of their tasty freakshakes, such as the choco mocha, Oreo, red velvet and cookie flavours.
When: 11am to 11:30pm
Where: 80 Feet Road, Koramangala 6th Block
Lowdown: It's named aptly—a guilt trip is exactly what you'll go through after inhaling one of their freakshakes, such as the Belgian chocolate cupcake variety. But you've got to live a little and life's too short to not have dessert.
