MADISON (WKOW) -- Wisconsin is well on its way toward naming an official state microbe, and now lawmakers want to name an official state snack.
You probably guessed it -- the proposed state snack is cheese.
Sen. Jim Sullivan (D-Wauwatosa) proposed the bill. There will be a public hearing on the bill on Thursday.
The proposal to designate a state microbe would name the bacterium that converts milk into cheese as the nation's first official state microbe.
If approved, they would join the list of designated state foods, with corn as the state grain, cranberry as the state fruit and milk as the official state beverage.
