About the chef

Chef Rib Tickler

Chef Rib Tickler’s epicurean tale began with a humble can of chicken noodle soup in a cozy Columbus kitchen. At eight years old, he wielded his can opener like a wand, transforming the ordinary into the extraordinary with each pop of the lid. These were his first steps on a flavorful journey marked by joviality and jest.

Now, Chef Rib Tickler is the sultan of simmer, a high priest of poultry broth, with a laugh as infectious as his cuisine is comforting. He is a maestro of mirth, stirring humor into every pot, proving that the heartiest ingredient in any dish is a dash of delight. Chef Rib’s philosophy? A spoonful of laughter is the best seasoning for life’s feast.

Try our signature milkshake

Cotton Candy Cloud Shake

Cotton Candy Cloud Shake

Description: Dive into a dreamy concoction with the Cotton Candy Cloud Shake. This luxurious milkshake starts with a creamy vanilla bean ice cream base, blended to perfection for ultimate smoothness. Swirls of blue and pink cotton candy flavored syrup weave through the shake, creating a magical, pastel-colored spectacle.

To elevate it further, the rim of the glass is frosted with crushed pastel-colored candy and adorned with sticky, sweet cotton candy pieces. Perched on top, a fluffy cloud of blue and pink cotton candy, sprinkled with edible glitter, sits majestically. The shake is garnished with a sprinkle of fairy dust (edible shimmer sugar) and a light drizzle of marshmallow sauce, adding a touch of whimsy.

For an interactive touch, a small vial of cotton candy flavored popping candy is served on the side. Pour it over the cotton candy cloud and watch as it crackles and pops, infusing the shake with a playful spark.

Serving Suggestion: Serve in a tall, clear glass to showcase the colorful layers and garnishments. Provide a wide straw and a long spoon to ensure every sip and scoop captures the full spectrum of flavors and textures.

This Cotton Candy Cloud Shake is not just a drink; it’s an experience, designed to enchant and delight the senses, perfect for making any day feel like a carnival.
