DALLAS, Oct 7, 2002 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ — Gone are the lazy days of
summer, replaced with the frenetic pace of the full five-day school and work
week. But all work and no play make life … well, boring. Escape the same old
routine and dazzle your taste buds with an indulgent snack — HERSHEY’S Vanilla
Cream MilkShake.

Morningstar Foods, a subsidiary of Dallas-based Dean Foods, is extending the
indulgence factor by offering this new milk shake flavor — in addition to
Creamy Chocolate and Cookies ‘n Cream flavors — all manufactured under license
from Hershey Foods Corporation.

“We are excited that our relationship with Hershey continues to grow with the
rollout of new national products to the dairy aisle,” said Toby Purdy, senior
vice president of marketing and business development at Morningstar Foods. “The
Vanilla Cream MilkShake is the third flavor in our initial round of product
development and distribution. Our specially developed recipe offers an intense,
creamy taste that is sure to satisfy anyone’s sweet tooth.”

Hurry to the dairy case of grocery and convenience stores, as well as mass
merchandise and club stores, and look for the electric blue, single-serve
14-ounce plastic bottles that are perfect for consumption anywhere.
