The PA Diarymen’s Association brought its milkshake truck to Kennie’s Market in Gettysburg today and served over 1,700 milkshakes before heading out at about 5:00 p.m.
The event was part of a tour of milkshake truck pop-ups across the state that began earlier this year when the PA Farm Show was cancelled.
In addition to its traditional vanilla and chocolate, the truck also previewed a brand new creamy black raspberry flavored milkshake.
PA Dairymen’s Association was originally formed as the Crawford County Dairy Association in 1871 and is now a statewide organization with a mission of promoting Pennsylvania dairy farms.
Proceeds from the sale of milkshakes benefit agricultural scholarships, hunger prevention, youth programs, and educational programs across the state.
If you missed your chance today you can still get a shake at the 2022 PA Farm Show to be held in Harrisburg January 8-15, or buy the organization’s Cowabunga vanilla and chocolate ice cream “by the scoop” in the Kennie’s store.
Or you can host the milkshake truck for your own local celebration.
