Dairy Month Continues

Dairy Month Continues

There is one more week left to celebrate ‘June is Dairy Month’!

We have been handing out free samples of chocolate milk this month to random folks on the street. We’ve visited a local police department, a sports camp, hardware stores, random people at the park, construction crews, bank tellers, the local sportsman shop, and more! We’ve had a great time with this.

A big thanks go out to the local farms that have supplied us with these samples.

  • Kreider Farms - Manheim, PA
  • The Oasis Creamery - Ronks, PA
  • Down on the Farm Creamery - Strasburg, PA

We will have more milk next week. Flag down a Doorstep Dairy truck and get you a bottle:)

Something else we have available next week is free samples of a new dairy product that we would love your feedback on.

A local lady in Downingtown, Jenny Petitti, is seeing a dream of hers become a reality. Jenny is a Registered Dietitian who is a glutton for healthy nutrition…if you catch my drift😜. As someone who works out on the daily, she wanted to create a healthy and all-natural ready-to-drink protein shake.

No photo description available.

Now I’m not very well-versed in the world of protein drinks, I can talk milk all day long…but the ‘functional beverage’ category is not something I have much experience with. If you have knowledge of this space, I would love to hear your feedback.

  • Is this a product that you would like to see on our menu?
  • What price point would you expect to pay?

So I’ll cut to the chase…

Jenny just had her first batch of ‘ready to sell’ protein shakes made this week. This is a milk-based chocolate recovery drink made in Paradise, PA. She has given us a limited number of bottles for us to give out as free samples. How generous is that?

So what’s in it? Adequate amounts of…

  • The 3.2 g BCAA leucine which is the key turn on muscle synthesis 3-4 g is recommended post-workout during the anabolic window (15-30 minutes). The sooner the better.
  • Both the electrolytes sodium + potassium restore water balance due to sweat loss. Recommended amounts are at least 200 mg of sodium and between 300 and 800 mg of potassium. Our product contains 320 mg sodium and 700 mg potassium.
  • 33 g of complete protein to aid in building new muscle. Just slightly over 30 which is the max our body can absorb at a time.
  • Carbohydrates - despite their bad rap they are essential to improving your recovery and enhancing your performance during your next workout. Most shakes and protein powders on the market don’t contain carbs which is a disservice to consumers because they are actually necessary. Your body uses carbohydrates during exercise and they need to be replaced between 30-60 g post-workout. This shake has 47 grams.
  • Calories - 300-400 calories are recommended post-workout to refuel your body. Our product contains 350 calories.

What’s it made of?

  • Milk
  • Cream
  • Live and active yogurt cultures
  • Natural flavor - sugar, cocoa powder, vanilla, and salt.

Why we’re different:

  • Desired mouthfeel and perceived thickness without any food thickeners or stabilizers such as Vegetable Fiber, Sunflower Oil, Sunflower Lecithin, Guar Gum, xantham gum, CARRAGEENAN, CELLULOSE GEL, CELLULOSE GUM, inulin, pectin, corn starch fiber found in most if not all other products on the market.
  • It’s both the ingredients and the process of combining them that prevents the need for thickeners which was one of my goals.
  • Ours proudly contains carbohydrates.
  • Others contain sweeteners such as Monk Fruit Extract, ACESULFAME-POTASSIUM, SUCRALOSE, CONCENTRATED MONK FRUIT JUICE, and STEVIA LEAF EXTRACT making them low-carb.

So for next week only (the week of Monday, June 26th) you can order a free bottle of the…
