In line with our weekly “weird law” blogs, this week we will examine some strange food laws from across the nation. Here are some weird food laws, some of which are still on the books. Enjoy!
- New York: It is illegal to eat peanuts and walk backwards while at a concert. Well that’s unfair. How else is one supposed to listen to music?
- Massachusetts: It is illegal for mourners to eat more than three sandwiches while at a wake. I would definitely break this law, as I tend to eat my feelings away. Two boxes of chocolate during a break up and 4 sandwiches at a wake.
- Ohio: It is illegal to eat a donut while walking backwards. Again with the walking backwards law!!!
- Connecticut: A pickle is only considered a pickle if it bounces. Connecticut has placed pretty harsh standards on pickle authenticity.
- Idaho: It is illegal for a man to give his sweetheart a box of candy weighing less than fifty pounds. If this law is still on the books, I’m moving to Idaho tomorrow!
- Louisiana: It is illegal to send a pizza via a deliveryman to a friend without them knowing. Violating this law would cost the pizza prankster a fine of $500.
- Kansas: It is illegal to sell cherry pie a la mode on Sunday. Wonder what makes it illegal, the cherry pie or the vanilla ice cream on top. Anyone know?
