What could be more wholesome than milk and apple pie, the official beverage and pie? Though milk ranks among the most redundant state symbols, only Vermont calls apple pie a state symbol.

Vermont’s official winter sports, skiing and snowboarding, are more than wholesome. They’re healthier than apple pie. In this era of genetically modified food and processed foods, they’re probably healthier than milk as well.

Vermont also has an official fly-fishing fly, the Governor Aiken bucktail streamer. No other state has such a symbol.

Vermont’s state tree, the popular sugar maple, is pretty wholesome, too. Vermont is also the only state with an official flavor: maple. The connection to the state tree is obvious.
