Which Norfolk delicacy should the EU recognise?

Britain must ensure that European delicacies like Parmesan cheese, Parma ham and Champagne continue to have protected status after Brexit, a Brussels negotiating document states.
The European Union position paper on intellectual property rights said the government should put in place the 'necessary domestic legislation' so the products continue to enjoy protected status after the UK's expected exit in March 2019.
But while Italian Parma ham and French Champagne benefit from this status, along with Cornish clotted cream and Jersey Royal spuds, very few delicacies from East Anglia make it on the list.
Newmarket sausages and Fenland celery have made the cut but should Morston mussels, Cromer crab and Norfolk black turkeys join them?
How about the Bacchus wine produced by Winbirri Vineyards which was named one of the top white wines in the world or Colman's Mustard?
