Perhaps one of the haters was Maryland Del. David Moon, who recently tweeted that he had not heard of Old Bay until he was fully grown.
“Everyone knows #mumbosauce is the correct seasoning for blue crabs,” Moon tweeted Thursday in response to the poll results.
Mumbo sauce is popular in the Washington area.
“Opinions toward Old Bay transcend party, age, race, gender and ideological lines,” said Mileah Kromer, director of the Sarah T. Hughes Field Politics Center at Goucher College. “An overwhelming majority of Marylanders view it favorably. Maryland politicians should be wary in expressing any negative opinions toward this most beloved seasoning.”
