Do you love chocolate? All things, anything chocolate? It would not come as a surprise to find most people answer "yes!" to both questions. Chocolate, after all, is a feel-good food, a pick-me-up, a taste pleaser! For this celebration, instead of eating the chocolate, you get to drink it!
September 27 is...
National Chocolate Milk Day
Until the 1820s, drinking chocolate was fairly uncommon and no one knew how to produce a smooth chocolate taste in liquid form. In 1828 the Van Houten company in Amsterdam invented the cocoa pressing method. This produced a light, fluffy chocolate powder that could be easily dissolved in water or milk. Today, chocolate milk is a popular beverage for people of all ages. [Source: punchbowl]
