Eggnog Taste Test
We have been very committed to trying different products from local dairy farms. In the spirit of the season, we decided to have an eggnog taste test. It was very interesting. Some students had never tried eggnog. We had peppermint, pumpkin spice and traditional eggnog from the Danzeisen Dairy Farm in Arizona. Traditional won!

How do you plan to make this Play last during the school year and beyond?

This taste test Play will last through the year because we will continue to use products from this farm during our taste tests. It fit in perfectly right now because they had seasonal products. I hope they continue to do this throughout the year.

What challenges did you face and how did you overcome them?

We were running low on funds so we were able to return old milk bottles from a previous taste test and get cash for them ($2 per bottle). We were able to put that towards the new bottles.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

I feel that through various Plays, our students are now very familiar with dairy and dairy products that are out there. Our goal is to show students that dairy is not just milk and that they can get 3 servings a day in a variety of ways.
