Press Release Summary: Popular Florida recording artists Robin And The Giant
stimulate interest by Floridians in naming an official Florida State Sandwich.
Press Release Body: Florida recording artists Robin And The Giant have begun an
informal campaign to recommend that the State Of Florida embrace the idea of
declaring an official “state sandwich.” The idea stemmed from a radio conversation
on NewsTalk 1370 WOCA, in Ocala, FL, when the morning-drive duo read that
legislation was introduced in Massachusetts to make the "Fluffernutter" the official
sandwich of the commonwealth. For those of you from outside of New England, a "Fluffernutter" is a simple sandwich composed of 2 slices of bread, peanut butter
and Marshmallow Fluff.
Listeners called the radio program to offer their own suggestions for the official
Florida sandwich which included the Gator Burger, the Cuban Sandwich, the Barbecue
Pork Sandwich, and the Peanut Butter And Jelly sandwich because of the large number
of peanut farms in the state. Robin And The Giant say if you’d like to suggest a
sandwich you can log onto their website at www.RobinAndTheGiant.com and enter your
suggestion onto their “Guest” page.
While not a serious issue, it wouldn’t be the first time an official food made it to
the Tallahassee think-tanks. Back in 2006, the Florida Senate passed a bill making
Key Lime Pie the official state pie. Earlier that year, there had been some
discussion that pecan pie should be the state pie, given the large number of pecan
farms in the state.
Robin And The Giant have been a Florida based musical duo since 1988. Last year the
duo released the song “To Infinity” which told the story, in ballad form, of the
miraculous story of survival of Walter Marino and his 13-year-old son Christopher
who were rescued after treading water in open ocean off the coast of Florida without
lifejackets for 12 hours.
