NATIONAL CHOCOLATE MILKSHAKE DAY

Chocolate – Chocolate – Chocolate

National Chocolate Milkshake Day is celebrated each year on September 12 by chocolate and ice cream lovers alike.  Forget the calories in it for just this one day and enjoy a nice tall, thick and delicious, chocolate milkshake!

The first time the term “milkshake” was used in print was in 1885.  At this time, milkshake referred to an alcoholic beverage which was a whiskey drink described as a “sturdy, healthful eggnog type of drink with eggs, whiskey and etc., served as a tonic as well as a treat”.

  • By 1900 – Milkshake was referred to “wholesome drink made with chocolate, strawberry or vanilla syrup”.
  • Early 1900′s – People began asking for this “new treat” with a scoop of ice cream.
  • 1911 – The Hamilton Beach’s drink mixers began to be used at soda fountains.
  • 1922 - the electric blender or drink mixer was invented by Steven Poplawski.
  • Due to the invention of the blender, milkshake began to take a shipped, aerated and frothy form as they are today.
  • It was by the 1930’s that milkshakes were a popular drink in malt shops everywhere.

*********************************

To celebrate, along with all of the others that are celebrating National Chocolate Milkshake Day today, enjoy one, two or even three chocolate milkshakes today.

You may want to top off your chocolate milkshake with a dollop of  whipped cream !!
