    1. The tea got dumped in the harbor. πŸ˜‰I don't drink coffee, but my BIL's friend, has a coffee company, Hogan Brothers Coffee where they roast beans, grind, sell coffee, and equipment. Most people around here drink coffee from Dunkin' Donuts so that's probably the unofficial state coffee

  2. I'm loving your state facts. That shell is lovely. What other state has an official state shell? I'm thinking NONE!!

  3. I'm smiling at your comment to Valerie about Dunkin's coffee. It could be the state coffee of NH too.

  4. I've never had a coffee ☕ from Dunkin Donuts, we don't have one in our little town! But having a coffee company sounds good!

    1. Designating an official this or that is a fun project for the school children and they learn how bills are passed at the same time.
