Deception Salsa Entice Corn & Bean Salsa

We are here to announce the winners of the ILoveItSpicy Best Salsa in the World Contest. I would like to thank all the companies that participated. We asked for $5 entry fee/salsa to be donated to the Snowdrop Foundation and many of these companies spent way more to help support this great charity. The Snowdrop Foundation’s is dedicated to assisting patients and families at Texas Children’s Cancer Center through funding for continued research to eliminate childhood cancer and scholarships for college bound pediatric cancer patients and survivors. If you would like to help add to our totals here is the information to send your donations:

2013 Best Salsa in the World Contest

Since it was a huge hit last year, (55 jars of salsas submitted last year), we are doing it again. The most important factor in this salsa contest is to raise money for the Snowdrop Foundation which helps with Children’s Cancer research and support. All salsa entries are $5/salsa with 2 jars of salsa per entry, but we will gladly accept more because 100% of the proceeds are given to the Snowdrop Foundation. If you did not hear about this salsa contest last year, we are sponsoring it in conjunction with the Houston Hot Sauce Show. The salsa entered can be from anywhere, but must be manufactured in a legal kitchen and have nutritional and ingredient declarations on the label. No fresh salsa will be allowed, only sealed jars to be as fair as possible. We had 2 categories last year – traditional and fruit-based. I will open the contest to a black bean & corn salsa category if I can get at least 10 companies interested. As soon as I have 10, I will alert all the companies that inquired, so they can add these salsas to their mailing list.
