It is a scary thought to think what the world would be like without Wisconsin. Eeek, the very thought makes me shudder. Here are 10 reasons why it would be totally horrible for the rest of the world if Wisconsin didn’t exist anymore.
Wisconsin didn't invent beer, but we might have perfected it. Think what America would have been like without our brews.
Who doesn't like cheese? If there wasn't Wisconsin, you'd have to eat cheese from California cows. How terrible.
3. The Green Bay Packers
Imagine the state of football without Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers. This organization IS football.
Wisconsin has single-handedly kept the brat alive. You're welcome, world.
Wisconsin is the leading producer of cranberries. Do you like cranberry juice--either by itself or in a cosmo? If so, you are thankful that Wisconsin exists.
6. Cream Puffs
Can we pause for a minute and give thanks for this excellent dessert? It's been sold at the Wisconsin Fair since 1924.
A close second to cream puffs, Kringle is a Wisconsin staple and is sold elsewhere in the country. It goes so well with a good cup of coffee.
8. The Ice Cream Sundae
If it wasn't for some guys in Two Rivers, would we have ever figured out to pour chocolate syrup onto ice cream? I wager not.
9. Social Security
Do you enjoy getting some baseline financial protection from the government? If so, you have Wisconsin to thank for that, the state that invented the concept and tried it out for the rest of the country to follow suit.
10. The Blender
Can you imagine still hand-mixing stuff? There would be no evolution in margaritas and my protein shakes would be super lumpy.
