Congratulations to The Jelly Queens and The Spice Kings, Founder and Creator Donna Anderson Collins Yamini has done it again!!! The Jelly Queens are now a finalist in H-E-B’s Quest for the Best !!
This week San Antonio-based H-E-B announced the 25 finalists in its Quest for the Texas Best contest. The contest, which aims to find the best Texas-made food products, drew nearly 600 submissions in 74 categories ranging from beer and butter to pastries and pickles.
On Aug. 19 and 20, a panel of judges will convene at the Houston Food Bank to interview the makers of the final 25 products. The judges also will evaluate each food item for “quality, marketability and readiness for production.”
The grand prize winner will receive $25,000 in cash and be named an H-E-B “Texas Best” Primo Pick. Three other cash prizes ranging from $20,000 to $10,000 will be awarded. Prize winners also will have the opportunity to land a spot on the grocery chain’s shelves.
We will be watching!!!
