National Chocolate Milkshake Day is observed 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. During this period, milkshake referred to an alcoholic beverage which was an alcoholic drink described as a “sturdy, healthful eggnog type of drink” which was a blend of eggs, whiskey, and other ingredients served both as a tonic and treat at pharmacies.

By 1900 milkshakes were referred to as “wholesome drinks made with chocolate, strawberry or vanilla syrup.”
The early 1900s – 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 – Steven Poplawski invented the electric blender or drink mixer.

Due to the invention of the blender, the milkshake began to take a chipped, aerated and frothy form as they are today.

It was by the 1930s that milkshakes became a popular drink in malt shops everywhere.

To celebrate, enjoy a Chocolate Milkshake at your favorite restaurant or soda fountain. You may want to top off your chocolate milkshake with a dollop of whipped cream! Use #ChocolateMilkshakeDay to post on social media.
