Milkshakes come in many flavors. I've had some wonderful concoctions. A memorable milkshake was one made with blueberries, freshly picked from wild
blueberry patches on Manitoulin Island -- amazing. And, yes, I'll agree with you, Russian Soldier, that strawberry milkshakes do, indeed, rock.
But, being a purist at heart, I'll have to pick a chocolate milkshake every time.
An aside; when I refer to milkshakes, I am not referring to those "milkshakes" one can get from a fast food outlet like McDonalds, Wendy's or
Burger King. When I think of milkshakes, I think of the one's my mom made. Many years ago, she purchased a Hamilton blender just like the ones'
used at the early McDonalds' .....you know, they were of a putrid green color. Using this blender, she made my brother and me all sorts of
different milkshakes; blueberry, boysenberry, raspberry and, yes, strawberry. She really was creative at making these treats for my brother and
myself. However, it would have been tough to top her chocolate milkshakes. I remember she used Hershey's chocolate syrup and she would add real
cocoa powder. It was incredible. Oh, by the way, she also made our own ice cream!
