NATIONAL CHOCOLATE MILK DAY
Pour yourself a tall glass of cold and frothy chocolate milk and join the celebration of National Chocolate Milk Day which is held each year on September 27.
Chocolate milk is loved by people of all ages!
Invented by Hans Sloane in the later 1680′s, chocolate milk can be purchased pre-mixed or it can be made at home with either cocoa powder and a sweetner or with melted chocolate, chocolate syrup or chocolate milk mix.
While Sloane was in Jamaica he encountered cocoa where the locals there drank it mixed with water. After trying it, he reported to have founded it nauseating. Sloane then found a way to mix the cocoa with milk to make it more pleasant tasting. Upon returning to England, he brought the chocolate recipe back with him. Now people enjoy this delicious drink everyday.
Mix up some chocolate milk to drink and post on social media using #ChocolateMilkDay to encourage others to do so as well.
