The Milk Processor Education Program (MilkPEP), creators of the national Milk Mustache "got milk? ®" campaign, kicked off its 8th annual "Chocolate Milk: The Official Drink of Halloween" promotion featuring the iconic PEANUTS® gang to help processors scare up their milk sales. Halloween is one of the most successful occasions for increasing chocolate milk sales each year as moms love giving their kids chocolate milk as a delicious and nutritious Halloween treat.
