Mozzarella sticks with raspberry sauce - just upstate NY???

Hi all.

Question, especially for upstate-NY folks. When I lived in Albany/Troy I used to love getting fried Mozzarella sticks, with most bars/restaurants offering a choice of marinara sauce or raspberry sauce. I've seen Mozzarella sticks all over the country, but I've never seen them with raspberry sauce anywhere else but upstate NY. Why? Who came up with this? Why didn't they make it anywhere else?

I've been in Southern California for about 20 years. I told my wife and daughter (both SoCal natives) about this and they thought I was nuts. On a trip through Troy a few years ago, they tried them and thought they were great! How do I spread the news? Anyone seen these in other parts of the country?

Thanks,

David
