Choose the Day with Karl K.

After the forecast, I offered up the National Days for Karl K. to choose from:

  1. Get to Know Your Customers Day
  2. Get Smart About Credit Day
  3. Chicken and Waffles Day. 

Three marvelous days to choose from, but Karl and I both went with Chicken and Waffles Day after Karl revealed that he had never eaten the sweet and savory combo. 


Rodeo Really Tough Trivia

At 7:10, we went down the Chicken and Waffle Rabbit Hole for the Rodeo Really Tough Trivia Question. 

I began by discussing the flavorful history of the savory and sweet combo. I talked about the colonial period of the 1600s and the Pennsylvania Dutch take on the dish with stewed chicken covered in gravy. That didn't sound too appetizing, so I decided to look at the sweetness of the maple syrup ingredient. 

That led to the Rodeo Tough Trivia Question: What U.S. State leads in the production of Maple Syrup?

  1. New Hampshire
  2. New York
  3. Vermont
  4. Maine

Winner Winner Chicken Dinner! 

Mylee Lange was caller #5, and she had the correct answer: Vermont!

Fun Fact: Vermont is the most significant U.S. maple syrup-producing state, generating 2.5 million U.S. gallons in 2022.
