Rocky Road Clusters for National Chocolate Milk Day

Rocky Road Clusters for National Chocolate Milk Day

This post about Rocky Road Clusters for National Chocolate Milk Day is brought to you by TruMoo Milk. The content and opinions expressed below are that of close to home.

In our house we don’t need an excuse to drink chocolate milk. After a big day on the field, it seems that if we have a gallon of chocolate milk in our fridge, it is the first thing they drink up. However, this Sunday, September 27th is National Chocolate Milk Day. Like so many National food days, this unofficial National holiday has no clear origin or ownership by a brand. But 2015 is the year TruMoo will change that. TruMoo is the #1 chocolate milk brand. Who doesn’t love the idea of the perfectly blended Chocolate milk already in your fridge waiting for you? To celebrate the extra Chocolatey-goodness on National Chocolate Milk Day, we also made some yummy Rocky Road Clusters that complement a large glass of TruMoo.
