Today we celebrate a classic American frozen treat. June 20th is National Vanilla Milkshake Day!

Milkshakes became popular in the 1900s, as a family-friendly, popular treat made with milk, malt, and flavoring. Today’s classic milkshake, made with vanilla ice cream, was created in 1922 by Ivar “Pop” Coulson, a Walgreens employee who wanted a way to cool off on an especially hot day. Ever since, this recipe has become a staple to Ice Cream Shops, Diners, and more.
