The word “milkshake” was first printed in 1885, but it wasn't for the kid-friendly treat we think of today. Instead, the first milkshakes were a combination of cream, eggs, and whiskey! By the early 1900s, whiskey milkshakes were replaced for ones made with flavored syrups and malted milk.
The modern milkshake was born in 1922, when an employee at a Chicago Walgreens, Ivar “Pop” Coulson, was inspired to add two scoops of ice cream to malted milk. In 1922, the blender was created specifically for creating milkshakes. The world's largest milkshake was 6,000 gallons, according to the Guinness Book of World Records.
