255/365: National Chocolate Milkshake Day

If you’re cuckoo for frozen cocoa, today is really going to tickle your fancy. September 12 is National Chocolate Milkshake Day!

National Chocolate Milkshake DayWe’ve already paid homage to the vanilla milkshake and coffee milkshake, so by now you should be familiar with the history of this frozen treat. If not, click on either of the links and immerse yourself in the world of Walgreen’s employee Ivar Coulson. One thing I did not mention previously: milkshakes got their name because they were originally served in bars. If the customer liked the milkshake, he shook hands with the bartender; if not, he skipped out without leaving a tip. Fun and random fact: it would take 3.2 million average-sized milkshakes to fill an Olympic-sized pool. How fun would that be to swim in? Feel like making your own chocolate milkshake? Here’s an easy and fun recipe from Hershey’s. The term “I drink your milkshake” became a pop culture catchphrase after the film There Will Be Blood was released in 2007.

There’s not a lot else to discuss today, so let’s get down to business. Tara and I stopped by McDonald’s for chocolate shakes. I’m partial to vanilla myself, but it’s hard to complain about a frosty cold shake on a warm summer afternoon!
