Thursday is the perfect day to head to your favorite ice cream shop and order a Vanilla Milkshake. It’s National Vanilla Milkshake Day.
The Vanilla Milkshake has been around since at least 1885, but it was made a little different back then. Whiskey was used instead of ice cream.
It all changed when ice cream was added in the early 1900s, and by the 1930s the drink was a hit in malt shops everywhere.
