Oh, Highland Plains Bison…you had me at “Official Lean Meat of the Chicago Cubs,” and not because I’m a sports fan; I’m not. I just think it’s cool as balls that such a thing as “Official (insert remarkably specific food item) of (insert organization that you usually wouldn’t associate with aforementioned foodstuff)” exists. It got me wondering whether there are others. Statistically, I imagine there would have to be, since the notion couldn’t possibly have occurred only to MLB. Is there, for example, an Official Spinach and Three-Cheese Lasagna of NASA? An Official Three-Alarm White Meat Turkey Chili of the PTA? An Official Organic Milk Produced by a Corn-Fed, Thrice Daily Nut Brown Ale-Massaged Cow of the National Association of Letter Carriers?
For their sakes, let me dream that there are. Because all of those things sound delicious right about now. Perhaps I need to eat…
Anyway, bison is delicious too, and at risk of stealing some of its appeal, it’s actually kind of good for you. It also makes a great gift for your favorite carnivore, which is why I’m sharing HighPlainsBison.com’s holiday shipping schedule as it currently appears on their website:
