KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The bottle may look similar. What is printed on the front of the bottle is sure to catch your eye. But what is in the bottle will definitely surprise your taste buds.
Shatto Milk has been known for some interesting flavors when it comes to milk.
For the past ten years, Shatto’s milk products have made it into area grocery stores and into the hearts of many people.
“It’s been a long learning process, but its been wonderful,” said Barbara Shatto of Shatto Milk Company,.
The Shatto family said they have seen both the ups and downs.
“We first started out we were really nervous we only had 80 cows and we were really nervous that we wouldn’t be able to sell all of our milk. Today, we have over 400 cows and still we are having a hard time keeping up with the demand for our milk,” Shatto told FOX 4 News.
But after ten years and still going strong, the Shatto family is unveiling a new twist on milk just in time for the Fourth of July.
“We are so excited. It’s apple pie milk for Independence Day. That’s what our logo says on the bottle for Independence Day.
Those who tried the milk for the first time on Saturday seemed to be pleasantly surprised by the new taste. But apple pie milk won’t be around for long.
“There are only four thousand bottles. Yes, they are a limited edition. So, yes, they can be a collector’s option,” Shatto said.
And the taste?
“I definitely think it tastes like apple pie with a little bit of cream or ice cream on it with a hint of cinnamon,” said one taster.
You can find apple pie milk at your favorite store this week.
Shatto said they plan to release a few more special editions in the near future.
