TO AMEND THE CODE OF LAWS OF SOUTH CAROLINA, 1976, BY ADDING SECTION 1-1-682 SO AS TO DESIGNATE BOILED PEANUTS AS THE OFFICIAL STATE SNACK FOOD.
Amend Title To Conform
Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina:
SECTION 1. The General Assembly finds that boiled peanuts are a delicious and popular snack food that are found both in stores and roadside stands across the State, and this unique snack food is defined as peanuts that are immersed in boiling water for at least one hour while still in the shell. The General Assembly further finds that this truly Southern delicacy is worthy of designation as the official state snack food.
SECTION 2. Article 9, Chapter 1, Title 1 of the 1976 Code is amended by adding:
" Section 1-1-682. Boiled peanuts are the official state snack food. Nothing in this section requires or encourages any school district in this State to serve peanuts to students, especially students with food allergies."
SECTION 3. This act takes effect upon approval by the Governor.
