Sen. Tim Kaine (D-Va.) wasn’t exactly rejoicing, but said with a hearty chuckle, “I will get a visual excitement by seeing them on shelves, but I’m not going to eat any of them.”

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) seems to agree. After asking him about the rebound of the state fair staple, Graham deadpanned to ITK, “It’s the first big step to America’s comeback.”
