Today is National Chocolate Milk Day! Milk lovers and chocolate lovers alike shall rejoice today. I mean, next to chocolate and peanut butter, have you ever heard of a better combination? (Check out my post on fun facts about chocolate) So, I decided to investigate a few fun facts about, you guessed it, chocolate milk. Here is what I learned:

  • Chocolate moo juice was first invented by Irish physician Sir Hans Sloane. He sold his delicious recipe to apothecaries who sold it as medicine.
  • Chocolate milk is 85 percent water making it an effective fluid replacement after a tough workout. In fact, chocolate milk is the preferred sports recovery drink for both Olympians and amateur athletes.
  • Chocolate milk can boost calcium and vitamin D, which research shows is important for preserving cartilage and joint health.
  • Chocolate milk contains no more sugar than unsweetened apple juice and only a very small amount of caffeine found naturally in cocoa.
  • As widely loved as it is, chocolate milk accounts for only 7% of milk consumption in Canada and for less than 1% of our added sugar intake.
