National Chocolate Milk Day

Who doesn't crave a nice, tall glass of frothy chocolate milk? It can be purchased pre-mixed or can be easily made at home using milk and chocolate syrup.
Chocolate milk was first produced in 1828 by Coenraad Johannes Van Houtan in Amsterdam, though the taste back then was of very poor quality. Today, chocolate milk is a favorite beverage for people of all ages to drink.
Here's an interesting tidbit: a study conducted in 2006 by the dairy industry indicates that chocolate milk actually aids athletes in muscle recovery? Providing nine essential nutrients, chocolate milk is both delicious and nutritious to drink!
So go ahead and pour yourself a nice tall glass today to celebrate National Chocolate Milk Day!
Today is also National Corned Beef Hash Day & World Tourism Day
