The Hortonville Middle School Fuel Up to Play 60 student group & their advisor held a March Madness Dairy Taste Test during all grade level lunches during the first week of the NCAA Men’s/Women’s Basketball Tournament. Dairy products were highlighted each day of the taste test. There was a paper ballot each day with a bracket (just like in the NCAA tournament) for the students to fill out for the winning dairy product featured that day. Day one featured cheddar cheese vs feta cheese and cheddar cheese won that bracket. Day two featured yogurt with fruit vs cottage cheese with fruit and yogurt, and fruit won. The third day featured the two winners going up against each other and the winner of the March Madness Dairy Taste Test was cheddar cheese. The Fuel Up to Play 60 team members met each morning with the head cook at Hortonville Middle School and helped her to put together all of the taste test items and then ran the taste test during all of the grade level lunch periods. The taste test was a big hit and all of the students at Hortonville Middle School enjoyed tasting all of the dairy products.
