Q What is your favorite snack food


Rep. Ginny Brown-Waite (R-Fla.): “Chocolate, especially Reese’s peanut butter cups.”

Rep. Jeff Miller (R-Fla.): “Ice cream. Unless my wife, Vicki, is going to see this, then the answer is: ‘I don’t eat between meals.’”

Rep. Rosa DeLauro (D-Conn.): “Popcorn.”

Rep. Thaddeus McCotter (R- Mich.): “I’m Irish. … Potato chips.”

Rep. Jean Schmidt (R- Ohio): “Pizza. I love the way it tastes and it has all the essential food groups [she laughs and lists ingredients of cheese, tomatoes and bread]. Pizza and ice cream, but ice cream melts in the car and pizza doesn’t.”

Rep. Gene Taylor (D-Miss.): “Spicy, boiled crawfish. That won’t get me in too much trouble.”
