It’s the next best thing to actually being there.
Since state fairs are definitely not going to be happening this year, there is a major void in our lives that needs to be filled. While we are a bit annoyed that we cannot have fried ice cream this year, Borden is here to get us through it. The dairy producer has created a number of milks that are inspired by state fair flavors and we cannot wait to grab a few of our own.
The flavors of milk are based on the flavors that the State Fair of Texas has to offer. You can grab some caramel popcorn, cotton candy, banana taffy, or fried cherry pie when you’re looking to satisfy your cravings. The caramel popcorn milk probably goes great with our morning coffee.
It’s the next best thing to actually being there. The banana taffy is a returning option and it is an award winner! The fried cherry pie flavor comes as a bit of a surprise to the rest of us. We have yet to see it for ourselves but one intrepid Instagram user decided to share it with the rest of the world.
snackgator is the Instagram account that you need to be following for all of these developments. Who knew that the snacking world went through so many twists and turns on a regular basis? If you don’t follow snackgator and all of the other wonderful accounts that keep us in the loop, you could be left to wonder what is going on. No line of state fair-flavored milk is complete without one that’s been fried first.

WOOHOO! 🙌🏼 It's State Fair season! It might be a little different this year for some states (and even cancelled) – but that doesn't mean we can't enjoy the yummy classic flavors of the state fair! Borden released their annual flavored milks, and this year, we get Cotton Candy, Caramel Popcorn, Banana Taffy, and Fried Cherry Pie (Kroger exclusive). That Caramel Popcorn is legit – our favorite, for sure! 😋 Find these in select stores in Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and Ohio. Which flavor has you drooling? 🤤🥛
The milk flavors are available in limited locations from now until the middle of October. If you take the time to go through the comments on the post from snackgator, Instagram users in Ohio, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, and Texas have reported that they are able to find the milk without much trouble. Some may not be satisfied with these options, though.
So what can you do if you are still looking to head to the state fair before the summer is officially over? Some states are having a drive-thru gathering that allows people to celebrate more safely. There are other state fairs that have decided to go online this time around.SKM: below-content placeholder
