just for fun - Today is National Coffee Milkshake Day!

Okay, if you are like many of my family members, you enjoy coffee. And, if you are like many of my family members, you also enjoy milkshakes . . . so why not combine them! And, why not do so today, since it is National Coffee Milkshake Day! 

Grab some coffee, and ice cream, and enjoy! And While you enjoy, check out these fun facts I found on National Day's site - see their full article at this link -

  • 850 AD Coffee plant discovered in Ethiopia - An Abyssinian goatherd named Kaldi discovers goats eating coffee berries and brings them to local monks, who cultivate the plant and start chewing the berries for energy.

  • 1773 - Coffee comes to America - The Boston Tea Party protest prompts colonial American citizens to make the switch from tea to coffee as part of their patriotic duty.

  • Early 1900's - American milkshakes appear - They're described as "wholesome drinks made with chocolate, strawberry or vanilla syrups" with ice cream added, of course.

  • 1930's - Rhode Island premieres the coffee milkshake - The pharmacy, Delekta's, adds ice cream to coffee and milk to create coffee milkshakes.

Today is certainly a great day to try a coffee shake - if you never have, and if you have, then most certainly make time to enjoy another today! Plus, for two weeks Wendy's is selling a Cold Brew Frosty for just .99 cents . . . check it out!
