Ned said:Colored margarine was illegal in WI until about 40+ years ago. You could buy margarine but it was white and came with a packet of yellow coloring that you could mix into it to make it look more palatable. In those days, any trip to IL included a buy of cases of colored margarine for your family and friends
And it is about the beer, but the cheese and sausage are better than the beer these days.
Originally, colored margarine was illegal in Illinois also, I remember the white stuff . IL probably legalized it to get all that business from WI residents to make up for all the beer and sausage we used to buy in WI. I also remember all those field trips up to Bobby Nelson's sausage and cheese shop on US 41.
