Milkshakes and Meals
This week we took The Milkshake Factory's advice and paired milkshakes with meals. Turns out shakes aren't just good for an afternoon snack or after-the-movie treat! Here in the Good Housekeeping Research Institute we were pleasantly surprised to discover how well they complement more than a burger and fries.

Pittsburgh's Milk Shake Factory shakes things up
Like everything else, shakes no longer come in just vanilla and other simple flavors.
At The Milk Shake Factory on the South Side, which aspires to not only local but also national fame for its shakes, you can choose from at least 55 flavors, including Dulce de Leche and Red Velvet.
On its menu, chocolate and vanilla get the words "classic" put in front of them. If you want to live in the now, try ordering a Salted Caramel, Dark Chocolate Blueberry, or Peanut Butter and Jelly -- the last being one that was recently made permanent by customer voting via social media.

From Politics to Sweets
In the HBO film Game Change, an actor plays Chris Edwards, a staffer in the 2008 GOP campaign assigned to Sarah Palin. At the Washington premiere, Edwards rubbed shoulders with movie people and old friends from the political wars. A week or so later, he was hawking chocolate samples at Dean & DeLuca in Georgetown. It turns out Edwards's family has been in the chocolate business since 1914 with Sherman Edwards Candies, based in Pittsburgh. He and siblings Dana Manatos and Mark Edwards initially opted for political careers. All three worked for President George W. Bush, but after the Republican defeat in '08, they jumped into the family business, renaming it Edward Marc Chocolatier and repositioning it with an active website and clients such as Dean & DeLuca and Saks Fifth Avenue. They also landed a contract to be the only chocolate shop in the Pentagon, where their biggest seller is - not surprisingly - chocolate Pentagons. Here's a conversation with Chris Edwards.

Few former Bush aides still have a foothold in the Pentagon, but Christian Edwards and his sister, Dana Manatos—both of whom were aides for President George W. Bush—are more firmly ensconced there than ever. This time, as chocolatiers.

A Sweet Deal
Christian Edwards can tell you the exact page in Sarah Palin’s book where she mentions his peanut butter meltaways.
As Palin’s deputy chief of staff, he stocked the candidate’s plane with chocolate from his family’s company, Edward Marc Chocolatier. “Knowing that Governor Palin felt better after a long day just by eating our chocolate was very rewarding,” says Edwards.
He and his sister, Dana Edwards Manatos (she’s married to Tom Manatos, an advisor to Nancy Pelosi), are fourth-generation chocolate makers who run the company from a chic townhouse in DC’s West End. Their brother Mark is the CFO and oversees manufacturing in Pittsburgh.
