What do those two have in common?
Today we shared about Frappe Day…
Who knew that the original ‘frappe’ (yes, pronounced frap-PAY) was developed by a Greek man in Thessolaniki – the same city that inspired Paul’s letters in I and II Thessalonians??
The invention almost happened by accident in 1957 – a Greek man, working for Nestle, was looking to make a cup of coffee, but couldn’t find any hot water. So, since the company was demonstrating an instant powder for chocolate milk (probably Nestle Quik), he tried the same thing with instant coffee, ice and milk, using a shaker.
Frappe may be a Greek invention, but it is a French word, meaning simply a drink filled with ice.
Congratulations to David from Fredericktown – he got the answer right to our trivia question – the company involved, Nestle – and wins the $5 gift card to Everlasting Cup.
Thanks for listening!
