    Why doesn't Iowa have an official state beverage?

    Most states have an official state beverage:

    List of U.S. state beverages - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    But not Iowa.

    Should Iowa have an official state beverage?

    If so what should it be?

    Judging from that list, apparently it should be milk.

    19 of those states have milk as their official beverage. That's some creativity right there.

    I would think Templeton Rye would be a good candidate...it's made here, and I think that would kind of be a requirement.

    It's actually made in Indiana.


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    I find it funny that Nebraska has milk and Kool-Aid.

    Kool-Aid was invented in Neb, I think.

    Diet Dew for me. I don't even wake up without at least a 12 oz can.


    No matter what, I could NEVER cheer for Dirt and Urine.
