Burger 21, an award-winning, “beyond the better burger” fast-casual franchise, is continuing to raise the bar for the better burger industry with the rollout of its Loaded Spud Burger and White Chocolate Raspberry Shake, now available for a limited time. As part of its unique culture, Burger 21 offers a different chef-inspired burger and handcrafted shake on the 21st of every month.

Burger 21’s White Chocolate Raspberry Shake is a sweet blend of creamy vanilla ice cream, Ghirardelli white chocolate sauce, and Monin Raspberry Puree topped with whipped cream and raspberry drizzle.
