In the heat of summer, Burger King has quietly launched a lower calorie snack to help you cool off.
The burger chain has announced mini versions of its classic milkshakes in some participating restaurants in parts of the U.S. following reports on YouTube and social media.
The shakes cost just $1 each.
On Monday, Twitter user @Aaron2kbw posted a photo of the snack and Burger King replied with "Thanks for the service announcement." Burger King also changed its banner on Twitter to a snapshot of the Mini Shakes.
The host of Peep THIS OUT!, a YouTube channel known for reviews of fast food products, came across the new menu item in Southern California on July 4. The video blogger said the cups are nine ounces each and topped with whipped cream.

A regular-sized chocolate shake at Burger King is 761 calories. The 9-ounce version is 370 calories, according to the YouTuber.
USA TODAY reached out to Burger King for more information on the product rollout.
The dessert drink comes in the same three flavors as the larger sizes: chocolate, vanilla and strawberry, according to Delish. It's only available for a limited time, according to Burger King's banner on Twitter.
