Well, some places also list today as National Hamburger Day, but none of my calendars had today labeled as such and I feel like I've talked enough about hamburgers so I'm just going to focus on the fact that today is National Milk Chocolate Day.
I used to like milk chocolate, but then I became an extremely dark chocolate fan. Still, every now and then I have a small piece of milk chocolate and I just revel in the sweetness. I always try to make sure I only buy "ethical" chocolate - chocolate that has no ties to child slavery and is sustainably grown. And yes, a lot of chocolate is linked to child slavery. Visit SlaveFreeChocolate.org for more information and a list of companies that are considered slave-free.
To celebrate National Milk Chocolate Day, People magazine offers up an 80's Milkshake recipe. Try some chocolate for breakfast. Chow Bella suggests a cocktail that is remarkably similar to spiked chocolate milk.
