About National Vanilla Milkshake Day
The most popular milkshake flavor in the U.S. is strawberry. States like California and Illinois love the red berry flavor, while Texans crave pineapple in their shakes.
Many flavor combinations make your drinkable dreams come true, like shakes topped with cake, candy, cookies, and crunchy cereal. These fully loaded treats have come a long way since 1922.
