(Paul Fraughton | The Salt Lake Tribune) The Iceberg Drive Inn at 3900 South and 900 East in Salt Lake City.
Frozen summer treats Day 23: Iceberg shakes
Day 23 » Classic shakes from Iceberg Drive Inn.
First Published Aug 23 2012 08:50 am • Last Updated Aug 23 2012 05:00 pm

Throughout the month of August, Tribune writers are tasting our way through some of Utah’s finest frozen confections including ice cream, gelato, frozen yogurt and shave ice in an effort to beat the heat. Today’s pick:

Iceberg shakes • Sure, they’re a Utah tradition. But you don’t get to be a classic unless you’re good. My daughters and I returned to Iceberg for three longtime favorites — fresh strawberry, brownie, and banana-cookie dough — and all three were as good as we remembered. They’re made of good ice cream with lots of strawberry and banana and big chunks of brownie and cookie dough. These shakes are so thick you have to eat them with a spoon because a straw would never work.

Iceberg Drive Inn • We went to the one at 1516 W. 5400 South in Taylorsville; other locations include 900 E. 3900 South, Salt Lake City; 1530 S. 500 West, Salt Lake City (inside the Jerry Seiner GM Cafe); 9645 S. State, Sandy; 5049 W. 13400 South, Riverton; 1792 S. 2000 West, Syracuse; 180 N. State, Orem; 5260 W. 11000 North, Highland; and 222 E. St. George Blvd., St. George. (Check local locations for operating hours.)

Cost • $3.69 for a "mini" (which is a whopping 21 ounces); $3.99 for an even more whopping 24-ounce regular. You’ll pay extra for some ingredients — $.30 for fresh strawberries; $.69 for bananas; $1 for brownie or cookie dough.

Shop talk • Iceberg’s shakes are the ultimate comfort food, and they’re big enough to share. The list of flavors is extensive, and they’ll mix up whatever you had in mind, even if it’s mint-Butterfinger or root beer-peach.
