Food in the News: Happy Chocolate Milkshake Day!


There is nothing like a throwback, and a chocolate milkshake is a big part of American food culture. What 1950′s movie doesn’t have a couple sipping milkshakes together at a sweet shoppe counter, staring lovingly into the eyes of their high school girlfriend or boyfriend? There are a lot of ways to make a milkshake, whether it’s the old-fashioned way or a more modernized process! Keep reading for recipes, tips and chocolate milkshake history!


The first documented milkshake appeared in a newspaper in the late 1800′s. That’s a long time to be famous! The blenders of the 1920′s and 1930′s popularized the sweet shake even more. Countless fast food chains like Johnny Rocket’s, Wendy’s and Dairy Queen (who introduced the milkshake in 1949) have given us their spin on a milkshake.
