National Chocolate Milkshake Day

National Chocolate Milkshake Day
On Facebook yesterday, I received a post from NC State University Ice Cream saying that it was National Chocolate Milk Shake Day, so why not come on over to the Creamery on Campus.  The only time we've enjoyed the ice cream made by the students in the Food Science Department over at State has been at the State Fair where there are always long lines to get a taste of their ice cream.  I knew they had opened an ice cream store on campus but hadn't been over, so yesterday was my chance.

After dinner I suggested to Dan that we drive over to campus, about two miles from us, and have a chocolate milk shake at the Creamery.  Walking through campus, I noticed how much it had changed since I was a grad student there (1969-1972).

The Creamery is in the west wing of the D. H. Hill Library, so we had to make our way through the Library and over to the store.  There is a window outside from which one can order, but we wanted to meander through campus.

Place your order here.

As we enjoyed our milk shake, at a table next to us a group of students with their computers were studying organic chemistry.  I thought how different it was in the late 60s---no computer for studying chemistry and no Creamery on campus.

Ah well.  The milk shake was good.
A really good chocolate milkshake.
