Gov. Mary Fallin will be eating Florida's official state pie courtesy of that state's chief executive if the Oklahoma City Thunder defeats the Miami Heat in the NBA Finals.

Fallin and Florida Gov. Rick Scott made a wager Monday on the outcome of the NBA championship series that begins Tuesday night at the Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City.

If the Thunder wins, Scott will be sending a Florida-made Key lime pie to Fallin. Should the Heat prevail, Fallin will be sending a basket of food items made in the Sooner State.

Key lime pie, named Florida's official state pie in 2006, is named after the small, tart limes grown in the Florida Keys among other places.

Fallin won a Key lime pie from Scott in September when both wagered on the outcome of a University of Oklahoma-Florida State University football game. Fallin put an Oklahoma-made pecan pie up as her part of the wager.

At the time, OU was ranked No. 1 and Florida State was No. 5; OU won 23-13.

Fallin's gift basket features Head Country barbecue sauce from Ponca City; Flying G Ranch pecans from Lotsee; Daddy Hinkle's meat marinade from Cleveland; Red Dirt pretzels from Tulsa; Scott Farms Oklahoma's own all-purpose seasoning from Altus; Suan's Scotch bonnet pepper jelly from Oklahoma City; Prairie Gypsies chipotle lime mustard from Oklahoma City; Bedre chocolate from Pauls Valley; Jan's pickles from Carmen; Dreamcatcher Farm salsa from Edmond and Willis chili seasoning from Norman.
