A Celebration of Flavor: Honoring Georgia's Culinary Artisans 🍑🏅

A Celebration of Flavor: Honoring Georgia's Culinary Artisans 🍑🏅

This week is the event we wait for all year round: The Annual Flavor of Georgia Competition, a spotlight on the most mouthwatering creations our state has to offer!

This coming Thursday, April 4th, the University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences’ will sponsor the contest at the Classic Center in Athens, GA.

Flavor of Georgia is more than a contest; it helps promote and showcase the variety and success of food entrepreneurs in the state. Since 2007, more than 1,700 products have been entered into the contest, and participating businesses have experienced increased sales, business contacts, publicity and overall interest in their products.

We're always so tickled when we see the finalist list and it includes products we already carry...and that we will be able to see some very familiar faces, makers of other amazing products that we carry on georgiacrafted.com.

Right now, we're cheering on some top-tier contenders in this year's face-off.
First up, we've got the fizzy and fabulous "Peches" Georgia peach soda from
New Creation Soda Works. It's bubbling its way to the top as a finalist in the Beverage Category with every sip promising a sweet ode to Georgia's signature fruit. 🥤🍑

Then, there's the savory kick of Buffalo Ranch Popcorn by Cork's Popcorn, which is poppin' its way to fame as a finalist in the Snack Category. One handful is all it takes to understand why—it's a flavor fiesta that's impossible to resist! 🍿🌶️

But hold on, because the delicious train doesn't stop there. We're also toasting to some phenomenal past finalists and winners that you can find right on our website:
