Beyond yogurt: Official snacks state-by-state

New York state recently named yogurt as the official state snack.

Governor Andrew Cuomo, who signed the bill giving yogurt its official status, said The Empire State has become the top yogurt producer in the nation.

“Designating yogurt as the official state snack will continue to raise public awareness of the economic and health benefits of yogurt and the dairy industry,” the governor’s office said.

Yet, most states have their own official snack, dessert, fruits or vegetable. Check out the slideshow above of foods that get this exalted status.
