Wis. Senate Names Cream Puff Official Dessert

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — The state Senate has passed a bill that would designate a state fair staple as Wisconsin’s official dessert.

Fourth-graders from Mukwonago have been pushing lawmakers to anoint the cream puff as Wisconsin’s favorite treat. They convinced Republican Sen. Mary Lazich to introduce a bill. The Senate passed the proposal on a voice vote on Wednesday. It goes next to the state Assembly.

Lawmakers have created more than two dozen official state symbols already, although attempts to make Harley-Davidson the official state motorcycle and recognize a microbe that turns milk into cheese fizzled last session.

  • Sue

    This is what we pay these people to do? They have nothing better to do then making the cream puff the official dessert, what a waste but this does sound like something Bachmann would introduce.

    Good to know they’re working hard over there to solve problems….. I really think there is more important issues to deal with than the “official dessert”

      What is puce, I am not quite sure.

      • YSL

        It’s kind of a puke green. Like when a baby spits up the Gerber’s pea soup.

        Appropriate, don’t you think?

  • Scott Wanker

    Never mind the colossal waste of time & money that went into this farce…what about a dessert that truly represents Wisconsin & isn’t a rip-off from our neighbor to the west? The Cream Puff is the “Official” Dessert of Minnesota.
