SPRINGFIELD, MA (WGGB/WSHM) -

The big game is just days away and the governors of Massachusetts and Pennsylvania have made their friendly wagers.

Mass. Gov. Charlie Baker has wagered a number of foods from across the Commonwealth if the Eagles win, including one made in Springfield:

  • Clam chowder - Legal Seafoods, Boston
  • Craisins - Ocean Spray, Middleborough
  • Apple cider donuts - Smolak Farms, North Andover
  • Apple pie, chicken pot pie, and maple syrup - Hollis Hills Farms, Fitchburg
  • Grillo's pickles from Needham
  • Boston creme cupcakes and lemon squares from Koffee Kup Bakery in Springfield

“We are proud to have another opportunity to offer up some of Massachusetts’ finest local products for a good cause and look forward to the Pats bringing home another Super Bowl win," Baker said in a statement.

Should the Patriots win on Sunday, Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf has wagered:

  • Federal Donuts
  • Soup from Rooster Soup Company
  • Reading Terminal Market scrapple
  • Coffee from La Colombe
  • Donated pizza slices from Rosa's Fresh Pizza, a pay-it-forward pizzeria

Baker's office noted that both governor's have agreed to donate their winnings to a local food pantry of their choice.

“I am putting some of my Philly favorites and Philly’s finest and most iconic food items on the line but look forward to Governor Baker sending some Massachusetts food to Pennsylvania," Wolf added in a statement.
