"I wanna be like Luke".  Said in the old "I wanna be like Mike" sound.  It's happening.  We heard about the blue milk coming, as Kemps has teamed up with Lucasfilm and would be producing the limited edition mile.  Vanilla flavored blue milk just in time for Star Wars Day.  If you have no idea what that is, it's May 4th as in "May the 4th be with you".  Catchy, right?

The Kemps blue milk will be available at several stores around the area including Target, Walmart,Coborn's HyVee, and Cub Foods.  They will be available in half gallon jugs and will stick around until July.


Prior to this rollout, the blue milk was only available at Disney Parks where the Star Wars rides were.  The reference was to the original Star Wars, or the 4th episode.  That's confusing unless you're into Star Wars, then you get it.  Luke drank the blue milk.

Now, it will be available for anyone who wants to try it.

From KARE 11:

“Kemps is all about fun and flavor, so we’re always looking for new and innovative ways to bring the joys of flavored milk from our family farms to families across the country,” Senior Vice President of Innovation and Marketing for Dairy Farmers of America Dairy Brands Rachel Kyllo said in a press release. “With the mass cross-generational appeal that the Star Wars franchise offers, we’re excited to see fans of all ages indulging in this delicious beverage that’s also a good source of protein for strong muscles.”

So, if you are into celebrating Star Wars Day, this would be a great way to do that.  Plus, it's good for you... unless, of course, you are allergic.  Then don't do that.
