date shakes:hadley's vs shield's

based on good things said here, i decided to give hadley's a try. first thing i noticed was the machine it was pumped from. it looked like a slurpy dispenser. okay, the taste. the initial sips were pleasant enough to appreciate its coldness in 114 degree weather,then the details came into focus. the following sips contained a few chunks of mouth-puckering,unripe dates,then found other pieces that were hard, like ground up stems. definitely lacked the malty-brown sugar sparkle of the shield's well-integrated shake. the shield's shake mixture is also based on hand-dipped vanilla ice cream. the old-fashioned setting is an added bonus. back to indio i will go, it's worth the trip.
