A tall glass of chilled milk probably will taste good when the temps heat up this weekend. Good timing for the Milk Mustache Mobile "Drink Well, Live Well" tour, which heads to Sactown for a short stint starting Saturday.
The tour does have a purpose: To educate folks about the benefits of gulping milk. While on tour, the "milk" team will offer free health assessments, five-minute massages (who couldn't use this?) and free lowfat and fat-free milk samples.
Quick factoid: Did you know that more than 250 celebrities/athletes have endorsed milk, and that includes those infamous "Got Milk?" mustache ads. Models Christie Brinkley and Naomi Campbell launched the original campaign. And you've probably seen other faces like Brooke Shields, Rihanna, Miley Cyrus, Taylor Swift and Heidi Klum. Even Britney Spears (pictured) got on board - nine years ago - before she opted for alternative beverages (natch).
Now, Sacramento folks can hop on the milk wellness wagon and pose for their own souvenir "Milk Mustache" photos at any of the events listed below.
