NATIONAL DAY FLAVOR – Week of June 18-24

(Last Updated On: November 9, 2022)


This week on National Day Calendar stacks up a lot of cool creaminess so get the blenders ready.  Before we get to the sweets, Sunday starts us off with a protein on National Turkey Lovers’ Day followed by National Martini Day.  We round out the week with cookies.  Does that make it a cookies and cream kind of week?

National Vanilla Milkshake Day June 20


National Vanilla Milkshake Day is happily enjoyed by many people on June 20th of each year.  You can celebrate this day by making a homemade vanilla milkshake for you and your family today.

The first time the term “milkshake” was used in print was in 1885.  This milkshake was a concoction of cream, eggs, and whiskey which was often served with other alcoholic tonics such as lemonades and soda waters

By 1900, a milkshake was often referred to as “wholesome drinks made with chocolate, strawberry or vanilla syrups.”  A few years later in the early 1900s, people began asking for this new treat with a scoop of ice cream.  It was then by the 1930s that milkshakes were a popular drink in malt shops everywhere.

Maybe you want to top off your vanilla milkshake with a little bit of whipped cream and a cherry on top!!
