If you're looking for something to do today then get ready for some sweet satisfaction because it's National Chocolate Milkshake Day!  A pleasing beverage, in more ways than one!  Let's get right into celebrating National Chocolate Milkshake Day!


Well, I'd have to say that the biggest reason for people to want to celebrate such a thing like this is because they love drinking them! And chocolate is probably one of the most common flavors chosen, when it comes to milkshakes. But things are still toasty in some areas, so a milkshake would be nice around this time of year. So since this type of beverage and flavor is so popular and people might need to cool off a little, today is the perfect day for such a celebration!  But how did this wonderful drink get its start? Well, if you were to get a milkshake in 1885, you'd end up with a whiskey and egg drink. That sounds like a disaster waiting to happen! But if you skip ahead a few years, people would refer to a milkshake if they had a drink with chocolate, vanilla or strawberry syrup in it. And then in the early 1900s people started adding ice cream to their milkshakes.

And there's a reason for this odd evolution of the milkshake. You see, electric blenders weren't really around at first so a milkshake pretty much had to be like an eggnog or just some shaken iced milk. I guess people didn't want to get a good arm workout just to make a milkshake. But by 1911, electronic drink mixers started popping up and milkshakes started to take the thick form that we're use to.   And boy are they delicious!


So, how can you celebrate today?  Well, I'm sure most of you already know that most fast food joints have chocolate milkshakes just waiting for you to inhale them. So head on over to your favorite restaurant and get one in you! And yeah, I guess you could get a meal with it too. ;)  And if you're up for an adventure, and think you can handle it, then why don't you test out a small, chocolate milkshake from all the restaurants you can think of? At first you can use it as research to find out who makes the best chocolate milkshake, but I'm sure by the end of the day you'll be so sick of them that it won't be accurate research at all! So hmm, you might want to limit it to like three places so that your celebration doesn't go south.

But if you're handy in the kitchen you can always make your own. Get your favorite chocolaty ice cream, maybe some chocolate milk and whatever else you want to sprinkle in there. Then blend it to the desired consistency and enjoy. Want to make your milkshake even one more step toward the edge of radicalism? Go ahead and make your own ice cream!  Have a great day and enjoy your thick sippage!
