A Neapolitan Macca’s shake hack has gone viral on TikTok for looking like a delicious cup of unicorn faeces. Good. Nice. Cool.

Melika Zaidi is the fast-food hack queen behind the viral TikTok and she is doing god’s work honestly. All you need for this hack is three shakes: one vanilla, one strawberry and one chocolate. Layer the shakes on top of each other and now you have an aesthetically pleasing Neapolitan Macca’s shake. Starbucks is literally shaking right now.

If that seems a little too much effort (especially if you’re in a rush) some people in the comments asked whether you could ask staff to do it for you.

However, according to News.com.au a worker at a Sydney Macca’s said “it’s not a thing” and they’d need to order each shake separately.

BUT when I was 16 I actually used to work at Macca’s and because I was such a pushover, I would mix shake flavours if people asked. I also used to go into the fridge room and cry, but that’s another story.

So it really depends on the person serving you, but please, be kind to them if they say no. I know what it’s like to have a Karen verbally abuse you because you no longer stock Strawberry Shortcake Happy Meal toys for her seven-year-old demon and it’s ~literal hell~.

If (like me) you only end up scooping the chocolate out of the Neapolitan ice cream container anyway, Melika has also tried other shake hacks – like adding espresso to a banana shake.

There’s also *this* frozen coke espresso hack that I tried last year, and it sent me into an anxious spiral. The good kind, of course. Jokes, there is no good kind.

Although, add a little vodka into the mix and you’ve got yourself the perfect dance floor juice. Try it at your own risk.
