It’s illegal to eat a hamburger in this Minnesota city

Illegal to eat a burger? Say it is not so!!

I came across an article about the weirdest food laws. No lie, legitimate laws that were actually voted on and put into effect. Who in the world is the monster that made it against the law to eat a burger? Let me be with him. 😉

Did you know that it is a law in at least three states that you can’t walk around with an ice cream cone in your back pocket? In Boston it is illegal to eat peanuts in church. In Marion, Ohio, it is illegal to eat a donut while walking backwards. Some of these laws are laughable. Was this ever a problem?

Let’s take a look at the food laws of our neighbors.

In Iowa, you will never see an ice cream truck. At least in one town in Iowa.

According to Taste of Home, the city of Indianola banned ice cream trucks from plying its streets in 1967. But why??

In Wisconsinmargarine banned in several establishments.

Public schools, prisons and hospitals are not allowed to feed students, prisoners or patients margarine. Under state law, these groups are not allowed to receive butter substitutes unless the substitution is necessary for their health. According to Taste of Home, this law was introduced to protect the butter industry in the American Dairyland.

And finally, our crazy Minnesota law – no burgers?!!

Apparently this is actually a law in St. Cloud. It is illegal to eat hamburgers Sundays in St. Cloud, according to Taste of Home. If I lived there, I would break that law every weekend.

Which peanut butter brands should Minnesota shoppers avoid?

Although it is often marketed as a healthy addition to your afternoon snack or morning smoothie, many of the popular brands have some hidden ingredients that you should avoid.
