    Not every product enters these contests, so if you want to see your favorite, they might not have participated. No matter the case, these products won in the best of what was represented and they deserve the accolades.

    Thanks Buddah! I totaly agree, as a manufacture I can not please everyone neither can the other contestants. We make products becuase we love food and want to share our love of food with people. Just like Movies, not everyone is going to like the same movie, but the directors, writers, Producers and actors do it for the love of the business. The way I look at it if you think you can do better than do it!

    Hi Buddah,

    Thank you! I feel truly honored to be recognized with a 2010 Lenny Award and think it is a fantastic idea and meaningful tribute to your Dad. Please accept my sincerest sympathies for your family’s loss. I watched your video last night and it sounds like he was a great father and a generous friend to many people.

    Congrats to all the winners with hopes for a healthy, happy, and pro$perou$ New Year!

    Best,

    Andy
