National Chocolate Milkshake Day
Date When Celebrated : This holiday is always enjoyed on September 12
National Chocolate Milkshake Day is an opportunity for chocoholoics to savor and enjoy. The weather may have cooled off. But, our appetite for chocolate, specifically chocolate milk shakes, hasn't cooled off one iota.
Today is National Chocolate Milkshake. It's time to enjoy a cold, thick, frothy chocolate milk shake. Chocolate is the most popular milkshake flavor. For those of you who prefer other flavors, only a chocolate milkshake will do today.
Did You Know? Among the ingredients of the original milkshake was whiskey! It also included heavy cream. It took more than a century to evolve into the milkshake as we know it today.
To participate in this day is easy. You already know what to do. Make this day even more fun, by making the milkshake yourself.
Origin of Milkshakes
The first milkshake was made in 1885. They were originally sold in bars and saloons. The original milkshake was made of whiskey, eggs and cream. In the early 1900s, the whiskey was replaced by chocolate, vanilla or strawberry syrup. In 1922, a Walgreen employee added malted milk powder to the recipe. That same year, Steven Poplawski invented the electric blender. This made milk shakes more smooth and frothy. By the 1930s, malt ships popped up around the country, selling malted milkshakes and other ice creams.
Origin of National Chocolate Milkshake Day:
We found no factual information about this special day. But, we found many, many chocoholics.
Our research did not uncover the origin or the creator of this special day. One might think it should date back many decades. However, our research only found more recent reference to it, around 2010-2015.
We were mildly surprised that this day is celebrated in September. We expected it to be celebrated sometime in the summer. But, here it is in mid-September. Let's enjoy it to the fullest!
A true "National" day, requires either a Presidential proclamation or an Act of Congress. We found not record to this effect.
