The fifth flavor, Blueberry Milk, is scheduled to hit store shelves Thursday in its own unique half liter bottle featuring the word Chillin.
Barbara Shatto, owner and co-founder of the family-owned business based in Osborn, Mo., said Shatto wanted a Labor Day theme that was mellow and a bit fun in recognition of the economic and social contribution of all workers.
Just 4,000 of the Chillin bottles were created. Once they are gone the blueberry milk will be offered in the traditional pint bottles until mid-September.
This years other limited edition flavors were: chocolate cherry milk with Smooch on the bottle released before Valentines Day, mint chocolate milk with the word Lucky on the bottle released before St. Patricks Day, cookies and cream milk with the word Thanks on the bottle released in late May, and apple pie milk with the word Indie released before Independence Day.
Only five anniversary flavors were planned. However, customer response has been so great the company is planning two more limited edition flavors this year, one released before its birthday party on Oct. 10 and the other before the end of the year.
