Annual Tennessee State Fair awards Weigel’s a blue ribbon.
With the highest score, Weigel’s Chocolate Milk was voted best chocolate milk among all dairies serving the State of Tennessee, which includes many dairies operating outside the State. The scoring was based on three primary categories—milk flavor, body, and texture when tasting. The Tennessee State Fair Judges also evaluated the milk product on appearance and color. “It is an honor to win the prized Blue-Ribbon for Best Chocolate Milk at the Tennessee State Fair. It’s due to our dairy’s dedication to a high-quality product,” said Bill Weigel, chairman and CEO of Weigel’s.
Weigel’s chocolate milk was a unique entrant in the Annual Tennessee State Fair milk competition because it was the only chocolate milk made using a 2% milk-base rather whole milk. Weigel’s perfected its chocolate milk using 2% milk, which means it’s healthier. “Our chocolate milk is unique because we do not use high-fructose corn syrup,” said Douglas Rouch, dairy manager for Weigel’s.
