Milkshakes are so common in our society that we may not every stop to wonder about how they came to be. They were first introduced in 1885, but very different from what we know today.
In fact these early forms of milkshakes contained strong types of alcohol known as whisky. Yet by the 1900’s they had transformed to take on the meaning that we know them as today.
There aren’t too many people out there that don’t enjoy the sweet and delicious taste of a milkshake. They are made from milk, ice cream, and a variety of different flavors.
Some of them are just smooth while others have chunks of fresh fruit into them. They are sometimes garnished with whipped cream and cherries as well.
When ice cream parlors were very famous milkshakes were handmade. Today most of them come out of machines and while they taste good, they aren’t the same.
Many people prefer to make their own milkshakes at home. It doesn’t take very long to do it. They can also add more or less of what they like to make it exactly how they want it.
Some people like their milkshakes with just a bit of flavoring while others like it very sweet. Some people want a thick milkshake while others are annoyed if it won’t easy come out of the straw.
One of the biggest issues with milkshakes though is the amount of sugar and fat that are included in them. To appeal to the corner of the market that wants to watch their weight and their health, there are low carb milkshakes and even sugar free ones.
There are some locations that use alternative products so those that are lactose intolerant can even enjoy them.
Some popular restaurants have started to bring back the tradition of these old style milkshakes though. They are taking the time to make them by hand and consumers are delighted.
Even though they cost twice as much as other milkshakes offered, they are certainly worth every delicious taste. You will find plenty of flavors to choose from and they make a great treat.
In fact, some people are frequenting such restaurants regularly just to enjoy one.
