Untitled[edit]

Listing "Tang" as the state drink of Hawaii was added by an anon whose only other editing was vandalism. A google search only shows that "factoid" in Wikipedia mirrors and sites relying on Wikipedia as a source. I've removed it pending any confirmation from any reliable independent or official source. -- Infrogmation 21:27, 15 April 2006 (UTC)

Texas[edit]

State beverage for Texas also seems dubious.

I've removed it, along with all of the other information not listed in the references. MiraLuka 21:15, 22 April 2006 (UTC)

Arizona[edit]

Wanted to list "Glass of water" was the beverage for Arizona, based on having heard from several sources that there is a state law stating that one must proivide a glass of water if asked, if one has it. Except I can't find the actual law anywhere (it's supposed to have been one of the very first) in order to determine what year it was passed.

According to http://www.abc15.com/news/index.asp?did=29982 , It is unlawful to refuse a person a glass of water: In the summer-time, with temperatures reaching topping 120 degrees, often people will need water, but may not have the money to pay for it (mainly applies to homeless) hence, the law. It is very much in effect today, with businesses being reported (and heavily fined) who refuse to supply water to those who ask for it. Convenience stores are the primary businesses who uphold this law.

Having worked in retail in a few different locations here in Arizona, I can state personally that if this is actually an urban legend, a whole lot of corporations seem to believe it - its problematic enough that one auto parts store had to have a hose bibb installed out front in order to prevent thieves from asking to use the employee drinking fountain, after which they would steal items from the back room.

Can anyone help with this one? Zaphraud 22:01, 3 October 2006 (UTC)

Well, here is the list of Arizona state symbols and the accompanying laws: [1]. It appears Arizona doesn't have an official state beverage, and this list is only for the official ones. "Glass of Water" sure sounds like the unofficial one, but I don't think that information has a place in Wikipedia, unless it is notable enough to merit an article on the actual "glass of water" law. I bet Arizona is the only state with state neckwear, though. Katr67 22:21, 3 October 2006 (UTC)

Nebraska[edit]

How is Kool-Aid the official beverage of Nebraska? Vandalism? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 69.172.89.80 (talkcontribs) 02:07, October 25, 2006

Nah, it's sourced here. It appears Kool-Aid was invented in Nebraska. [2] P.S. If you click on the Kool-Aid link, it talks about it in the article. Katr67 02:47, 25 October 2006 (UTC)

Utah[edit]

I can find no reference to a state drink for Utah on either Netstate or the Utah Govt website. Anyone know where the one here came from? Mike 05:32, 19 June 2007 (UTC)

I can't find a citation either so I've removed it from the list. If someone finds a reliable source to cite with this information, please feel free to re-add. —Elipongo (Talk contribs) 02:01, 4 July 2007 (UTC)

California[edit]

According to this official site there is no Official Beverage for California. Should we consider that page definitive? Noah 01:38, 2 May 2008 (UTC)
