Food pics on social media have, quite frankly, become a little bit 'meh'.

But every once in a while there's a picture that makes your stomach rumble the minute you lay on eyes on it. Step forward 'Freakshakes' at The Black Lion, which has set Instagram alight since we Time Out posted online yesterday.

The gastropub in The H Dubai are the first venue to officially unveil what has been hailed as the biggest food trend of 2015, an overindulgent part-dessert, part-milkshake, served in mason jars. The straw really looks an uneccessary, as you can see from above; a bib would be better.

For the launch, The Black Lion have revealed seven bonkers creations featuring doughnuts, pecan tart, banoffee, cookies and more.

Pick of the bunch, in our eyes, is the pistachio and white chocolate, oozing with ice cream and topped with some sort of sponge slice.

For pure impossibility of eating/drinking without making a mess, the strawberry and jam doughnut takes top prize.

Other flavours include: Raspberry Eton Mess, Maple and Pecan, and Chocolate Milkshake with Cookies.

The Freakshakes are priced Dhs45 each and will be available at the venue from Friday February 12. Official information says you can order from 9am, but we're not sure we should advocate them for breakfast. But if you do, make sure you chuck a picture of it on Instagram...
