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.

    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.

      1. YSL says:

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

        Appropriate, don’t you think?

  5. Scott Wanker says:

      The story is about Wisconsin. Dim Wit!!!

  7. St Paul says:

    This story is rediculous. What a bunch of silly…. What, Cream Puffs?????

  8. Layne Madsen says:

    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.
