Swirl of Excellence Froyo Competition at the NRA Show 2014

Fro-yo girl here. I’m bringing my froyo spoon and years of froyo tasting experience to the National Restaurant Association (NRA) Show in Chicago. I’ve been invited to be an expert judge for Revel Systems’ Swirl of Excellence Frozen Yogurt Competition. Thank you Revel Systems!

A panel of expert judges, including yours truly, will select the best vanilla and original tart frozen yogurt flavors in a blind taste test. The vendor with the highest overall score for those two flavors will receive the honor of best frozen yogurt at NRA. The results will be announced Tuesday, May 20th at 11am, at booth 4181.

NRA attendees are also invited to visit the participating vendors and choose their favorite frozen yogurt. The winner of the popular vote will also be announced on Tuesday, May 20th at 11am. Ballots will be available at the participating vendors' booths and the Revel Systems boot (#4181).

I plan on sampling all the yogurt and frozen yogurt at the show. I hope Stonyfield brings their new frozen yogurt pearls. I’m also excited to try new food products and see chefs like Marc Forgione, Graham Elliot, Rick Bayless, Ming Tsai, Robert Irvine, Duff Goldman, Maneet Chauhan, Pat Neely, Anne Burrell, Rocco Disprito, Art Smith and Barbara Lynch.

Expect to see plenty of updates from the NRA Show on our Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram accounts and this blog.

You know you love me. X0 X0, fro-yo girl.
