Shatto Milk Company, a family-owned dairy farm based in Missouri, has released a limited edition celebratory milk flavor called “Eagle Tears”. The milk has a cheesecake flavor and a commemorative glass bottle marked by the defeat of the Philadelphia Eagles by the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl LVII. Eagle Tears is one of two flavors celebrating the Chiefs’ second Super Bowl win in the past four seasons. The other flavor is named “Golden Age”, and it tastes like apple pie.
The limited edition cheesecake-flavored milk can be purchased at Shatto Milk Company’s farm store, area grocery stores, or through home delivery. However, they are only available in the Kansas City area. Outside of the region, commemorative bottles are available on the dairy company’s website. The limited edition bottles are being offered in honor of the Chiefs’ victory against the Eagles. The bottle’s label mentions that the company had to “travel all the way to the desert and come back”.
The milk company uses the opportunity to taunt the Eagles’ fans with the name of the product. Rather than using plain language, they called the milk “Eagle Tears.” The label on the bottle is also pointedly snarky: “Have you ever tasted eagle tears before? Neither had we. But we gotta say, we weren’t expecting their flavor profile to so closely resemble cheesecake,” reads the announcement of the product. “Cheesesteak, maybe. But not cheesecake. Bottling them was no easy feat. We had to conquer the West, defend our home turf (twice!) and travel all the way to the desert and back.”
In comparison to Philadelphia Eagles fans, who are famous for their rowdiness, Kansas City Chiefs’ devotees are known to be calmer with their happiness expressed by a more reserved “Aw shucks” mentality. The dairy company’s limited edition milk flavor called Eagle Tears is a subtle but snappy swipe at the Eagles’ humiliating Super Bowl defeat while showing support for the Chiefs’ victory.
