             17      Be it resolved by the Senate of the state of Utah:

             19      after Utah was admitted to the Union as the 45th state;
             20          WHEREAS, Utah has been the number one per capita consumer of Jell-O® brand gelatin
             21      for many years;
             22          WHEREAS, Jell-O® is representative of good family fun, which Utah is known for
             23      throughout the world;
             24          WHEREAS, Salt Lake Magazine proclaimed Utah "the Jell-O® State" in a cover story in
             25      1996;
             26          WHEREAS, Jell-O® brand gelatin recipes, which often include bananas, apples,
             27      marshmallows, pretzels, carrots, and grapes, are a traditional favorite at family, church, and
             28      community dinners throughout the Beehive State;

             29          WHEREAS, in 1997, Salt Lake Tribune editorial cartoonist Pat Bagley drew a week-long
             30      series of political cartoons showcasing Jell-O® in Utah in conjunction with the 100th anniversary
             31      of Jell-O®;
             32          WHEREAS, a 2002 Winter Olympic pin was designed that featured a bowl of green gelatin
             33      and has become a valuable collector's item;
             34          WHEREAS, when Des Moines, Iowa edged out Salt Lake City as the capitol of Jell-O®
             35      gelatin consumption in 1999, it sparked front page stories in Salt Lake City's newspapers;
             36          WHEREAS, Utahns rallied to "Take Back the Title" as Chef Scott Blackerby hosted a
             37      recipe contest in the Hotel Monaco's Bambara Restaurant and Pat Bagley ran a cartoon persuading
             38      Utahns to purchase more Jell-O® gelatin;
             39          WHEREAS, throughout 2000, Brigham Young University students campaigned to make
             40      Utah's love of Jell-O® official at festivals and fairs throughout Utah;
             41          WHEREAS, more than 14,000 signatures have been collected from the people of Utah in
             42      support of the campaign to select Jell-O® as the Official Snack of Utah; and
             43          WHEREAS, due to these and many other efforts, Salt Lake City has now successfully
             44      recaptured the title:
             45          NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the Senate of the state of Utah recognize
             46      Jell-O® as a favorite snack food of Utah.
             47          BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that a copy of this resolution be sent to Kraft Foods, Inc.
