(NewsUSA) - Nothing induces summertime nostalgia like a milkshake, and no wonder -- milkshakes have a venerable and tasty history.


Milkshakes were developed as health drinks. Of course, ingredients like heavy cream, port wine and whiskey were considered healthy at the time. Originally sold in pharmacies, milkshakes soon made the transition to charming soda fountains, or malt shops.
