Ice Cream! Ice Cream! With this heat, who isn’t thinking of ways to cool down? Vancouver Foodster has just the thing – The Vancouver Foodster Best Sundae Challenge starts Wednesday August 3rd, running until Sunday August 28th.
Perfectly timed for a heatwave, Vancouver Foodster invited cafes from all over the city to enter their Sundae creations into this challenge. Some of the locations have developed a special Sundae creation just for this challenge and others have entered their top choice from their existing menu. Each cafe will be featuring their Sundae creation on their menu throughout the run of the Best Sundae Challenge so patrons can visit the entrants and vote for their favourite cool treat. Try them all and vote often, public is allowed one vote per day.
In addition to the people’s vote, a trio of Judges, me included, will be visiting and trying each location to select the Judges’ Choice. The participating locations have been advised to pay attention to a core group of attributes that will weigh on the judging; originality, creativity, uniqueness, traditional, non-traditional, price, value and most importantly taste.
The participating locations announced so far, include:
Beyond Coffee 1015 Burrard Street
Hype Chocolate Co. 855 E Hastings Street
Pampanga’s Cuisine 4279 Fraser Street
Sprinkles Gelato and Dessert House 12231 First Ave.
Food by Fanta 20542 Fraser Hwy
