Pillsbury apparently introduced their Moo Juice flavored packets of milkshake mix late in 1966.

Originally made in just two flavors — Chocolate and Strawberry — by 1969, two more taste sensations had been added: Vanilla and Chocolate Malt.

A year later, however, the product had virtually disappeared. While we couldn’t find an official cause of death, there is some suggestion that since Moo Juice didn’t make really thick milkshakes, other products outshone them on supermarket shelves. – NJP

Cows recommend Moo Juice

Hi! I’m a cow! So I’m an authority on milk shakes! And us cows recommend Moo Juice, the new milkshake mix from Pillsbury.

Just add Moo Juice to milk.. see, it’s easy. Then shake like crazy. And pour yourself a smooth and creamy treat. As fun as a trip to a drive-in!

So get the package with the good-looking cow on it! And let the kids serve dessert tonight! It’s terrific!

For an extra thick threat… add a big scoop of ice cream.

A unique “Quarter-Back Club” has been established by Pillsbury for its Moo Juice instant Milk Shake Mix.

Strangely enough, it has nothing to do with football. It’s a special offer to introduce you to the new, Moo Juice 7-shake package and two new flavors. Pillsbury’s Jack Jones says to watch the R&G food pages for the announcement on how to join the “Quarter-Back Club.”
