6-Year-Old Boy Who Dubbed Himself The 'Shirley Temple King' Goes Viral For His Brutal Reviews Of Restaurants' Shirley Temples
Shirley Temples are the "We're getting crazy tonight!" drink of our youths.
With an overload of sugar and containing several pungent flavors as well as a neon red hue, we knew our night was about to go down with a Shirley Temple.
If only we'd had a service to rate our Shirley Temples back in the day....
Thankfully kids of today will be afforded that service and will never know the same hardship we did.
Meet six-year-old Kelly from Connecticut—your Shirley Temple King.
Kelly, besides being adorable, is a tough Shirley Temple critic.
His criteria include grenadine to ginger ale ratios and the amount of present maraschino cherries.
Each video is tagged with a number of cherries that rates the Shirley Temple out of ten.
Kelly's instagram picked up steam after a tweet featuring his review of a Shirley Temple at Longhorn Steakhouse went viral.

Kelly is most certainly not easily impressed.
The highest rated Shirley Temple on his channel was the one he made himself.

🗣I’D LAY DOWN MY LIFE FOR SHIRLEY TEMPLE KING— kt (@kt)1580339230.0
According to the king, the ideal Shirley Temple contains "three to four ice cubes, glass cup, a whole can of ginger ale, just enough grenadine, three cherries and an extra-long straw."
After receiving over 123K followers in under 24 hours, he was blown away.
"Epic reviews to come," promises the King.
