Minnesota State Muffin
Adopted in 1988.
Third-Graders from Carlton, Minnesota proved they could have a law passed. In 1988, their bill, along with 314 others, were signed into the Law. The idea for Blueberry muffins to be the State Muffin grew in Social Studies class. The kids asked themselves this question during class, "If there was a Minnesota State food what would it be?" The kids thought of Blueberry muffins. They thought of it because wild blueberries are native to northeastern Minnesota, growing in bogs, on hillsides, and in cut over forested areas. Blueberries grow on the same plant as their name. People like to eat blueberries uncooked, in pies and in muffins. Ripe Blueberries are a light blue and black color and have a waxy, powdery-gray coating.
