Fall Shots

It’s been two weeks or better since we did fall shots, and I still haven’t shared that with y’all. Fire me if you want to. I just got behind! I sort of live my life on the edge like that. But seeing as how we ship tomorrow (and likely there’ll be snow) and sell Friday […]

Chocolate Milk – The Official Drink of Halloween

Chocolate milk is a delicious and nutritious treat anytime, especially during Halloween! For the 8th year in a row, chocolate milk is The Official Drink of Halloween. 

 Why choose chocolate milk?
It tastes great. Flavored milk is a top choice of kids because it tastes good.         

Contains nine essential nutrients. Flavored milk contains the same nine essential nutrients as white milk – calcium, potassium, phosphorous, protein, vitamins A, D, and B12, riboflavin and niacin. Together, these nutrients help strengthen bones, build and repair muscles and keep you full and satisfied.

Supports a quality diet. Children who drink flavored milk meet more of their nutrient needs; do not consume more added sugar, fat or calories; and are not heavier than non-milk drinkers. The American Academy of Pediatrics, American Dietetic Association and other groups agree that flavored milk is a positive trade-off for soft drinks, which are the primary source of added sugars in children’s diets.
The ultimate sports drink. Studies show that chocolate milk is a great recovery drink helping your body refuel and build muscles after physical exercise. It’s “nature’s protein drink” since it contains a perfect ratio of protein and carbohydrates for replenishing tired muscles.
 

Helps achieve 3 servings of dairy. Drinking chocolate milk helps kids and adults get the 3 daily servings of dairy recommended by the Dietary Guidelines of Americans.

In the spirit of Halloween, families across the country can “treat their bones” with a nutritious beverage in disguise – chocolate milk.
