Mousetrap and Milkshakes : 2017 Indiana State Fair Dairy Bar.
The Indiana State Fair is still a few months away (hang in there Nora!!) but we know why we will be making multiple trips to the always popular Dairy Bar this year. Indiana farmer Andrew Kuehnert created this year's featured grilled cheese sandwich, "The Mousetrap". Sink your teeth into crispy, chewy, slices of Texas toast layered with colby, cheddar and havarti cheeses. Wash down that savory summer staple with a thick creamy Root Beer Float Flavored Milk Shake. Want to create the featured sandwich for the 2018 State Fair? Enter your recipe now thru the end of the month at www.winnersdrinkmilk.com
