Move over, blood! In a move that is sure to outrage vampires everywhere, chocolate milk has been declared the official drink of Halloween.
This according to the Milk Processor Education Program. You know, the Got Milk? people.
(On a related note, I can also tell you it is the official drink of pregnant women looking to reach their required daily intake of calcium but are sick and tired of regular milk. Well, at least pregnant women named Kim.)
Of course, this is part of a marketing ploy designed to encourage moms to buy more milk for their kids. What I want to know is who made them the boss? How come they get to decide what the official drink of Halloween is? Maybe I’ve been inundated with too many campaign commercials, but don’t we get a vote in the matter? Certainly there are a few other options that should be up for nomination.
What say you?
By the way, if you love chocolate milk but are too lazy to spend all your time stirring, you won’t want to miss our Moo Mixer Supreme. It also makes a great gift for other lazy people in your life. Check it out in action in the video below:
What! No pumpkin juice? How very muggle of you! It is actually very good. You can find the recipe I use here: http://www.mugglenet.com/misc/rosmertas/pumpkinjuice.shtml
If you have a juicer or a vitamix, it whips up in no time. Yum and good for you too!
I love the mixer. I have one that is similar except it also heats up. Hot chocolate – double yum!
Thanks for the write-in vote, Jenny! And thanks for the link to the recipe, too!

Hey, I just love the receipe for pumpkin’ juice. Yes, I’m a kid at heart. I’ll be 68 in twelve days and am not certain how I’m supposed to feel about that. I have all of Harry Potter books and re-read when I feel the need to escape into “magic”. Not hard to do if you read and have an active immagination!
Yes, I start my day with K&J….. Pat
Thanks for starting you day with us, Pat. We love having your kind around!
This last weekend I was introduced to pumpkin *beer*. Yep, really beer, brewed with actually pumpkin and spices. Obviously not for the younger set, but a very different and interesting beverage.
Woah, Pumpkin beer??? Sounds pretty cool. A perfect beer for Thanksgiving football games, if you ask me.
