National Black Cow Day: Celebrating a Classic Treat

On June 10th, soda enthusiasts across the country raise their glasses to celebrate National Black Cow Day. This delightful holiday pays homage to the classic beverage known as the Black Cow, which has been enjoyed by generations of soda lovers.

The Black Cow, also known as a root beer float, is a simple yet indulgent treat made by combining two beloved ingredients: root beer and vanilla ice cream. The origins of the Black Cow can be traced back to the late 19th century, when soda fountains were popular gathering spots for socializing and enjoying cold refreshments.

Legend has it that the Black Cow was invented by Frank J. Wisner, the owner of Cripple Creek Brewing Company in Colorado, in the early 1900s. One hot day, Wisner was inspired to add a scoop of vanilla ice cream to his root beer, creating a drink that resembled the color of a black cow. The concoction was an instant hit with customers, and the Black Cow quickly became a classic soda fountain staple.

Today, the Black Cow continues to be a beloved treat enjoyed by people of all ages. Its creamy, frothy goodness and nostalgic charm evoke memories of carefree summer days and simpler times.

So, how can you celebrate National Black Cow Day? You could start by whipping up a batch of Black Cows at home and sharing them with friends and family. Or you could visit your local soda fountain and treat yourself to this timeless indulgence.

However you choose to celebrate, be sure to raise a glass to the Black Cow on June 10th!
