Why yes, that is Sen. Mike Lee. And me. And a perfectly perky virgin Jell-O shot.
After all, Jell-O has been the official state snack of Utah since 2001.
I kid you not.
My favorite clauses of the Senate resolution:
- Utah has been the number one per capita consumer of Jell-O brand gelatin for many years
- Jell-O is representative of good family fun, which Utah is known for throughout the world
- Jell-O brand relatin recipes, which often include bananas, apples, marshmallows, pretzels, carrots, and grapes, are a traditional favorite at family, church, and community dinners throughout the Beehive State
- when Des Moines, Iowa, edged out Salt Lake City as the capitol of Jell-O gelatin consumption in 1999, it sparked front page stories in Salt Lake City's newspapers
If you still don't believe me, you can read the entire resolution here.
And if you would like to have Jell-O with the senator, read here.
