CRANBERRY JUICE was named the beverage of the Commonwealth on May 4, 1970. This was a tribute to the great Massachusetts cranberry industry.
A fifth-grade class on the North Shore adopted the cause of making the CRANBERRY (Vaccinium macrocarpon) the official berry of the state. Their two years of lobbying, petitions, and hearings were finally rewarded on July 11, 1994.
On February 21, 2005, BLUE, GREEN and CRANBERRY became the official colors of the Commonwealth.
The school children of Massachusetts petitioned for the CORN MUFFIN, a staple of New England cooking, and the Legislature made it official on May 27, 1986. *
