Sometimes the simple things are the most memorable. And who doesn’t have lots of memories of good ole fashioned milkshakes. I have to say there are two places in this world that I think has hands down the BEST milkshakes and it should go without saying that they are both classic soda shops. A Knoxville favorite is Long’s Drug Store, where you can pull up a seat at the counter and eat a tasty burger and finish it off with a delicious chocolate malt shake. You will be hard pressed to find any of us Knoxville natives who don’t have lots of childhood memories at Long’s.
The same goes for Reeves-Sain Drug Store in Murfreesboro. This multi-purpose landmark of the town will have you shopping for adorable housewares, handling all your postal needs, getting your prescriptions filled and filling up with a tasty grilled cheese and, of course, finishing it off with a chocolaty shake!
During our recent office move, we came across an old milkshake maker and I knew I had to take it home to make a shake for Hunter Bear. And in honor of today’s National Chocolate Day celebration, I bring you a double chocolate milkshake made with Breyer’s Extra Creamy Chocolate Ice Cream, chocolate syrup and milk. Hunter has yet to visit my childhood favorites Long’s or Reeves-Sain and I’m excited to take him there one day, but it was pretty fun to make milkshake memories with him at home.
