"Malted milk...Originally created in 1887 as an easily digested infant's food made from an extract of wheat and malted barley combined with milk and made into a powder called ''diastoid'' by James and William Horlick of Racine, Wisconsin, this item, under the name ''Horlick's Malted Milk,'' was featured by the Walgreen drugstore chain as part of a chocolate milk shake, which itself became known as a ''malted'' and became one of the most popular soda fountain drinks.''
