Trivia Quiz Answer

Douglas Devore is again the weekly trivia quiz winner, being first to correctly answer Rep. Mike Winder’s question: “In the summer of 1988, which Utah congressional candidate was personally asked by Pres. Ronald Reagan to make him some jelly bean ice cream? Six gallons of the custom-made concoction was later shipped to the White House.”

The answer, of course, is Richard Snelgrove, who was an owner of Snelgrove Ice Cream and today is a Salt Lake County Council member. Others who got the answer right, but were too late, were Mike Mower, Joe Hansen, Orrin Colby, Craig Call and Ron Fox.
