Caramelpalooza 2013: The Winner of Our Contest to Be a Judge Is . . .
Who knew we had so many poets out there? You wowed us with your sweet words about caramel, Phoenix, but there can be only one winner in our contest to choose a judge for Friday's fourth annual Caramelpalooza, and that person is . . .
Tedd Roundy Paletas Betty made the winning entry at last year's Caramelpalooza.
Josh Rhodes, who penned the following:
dark, smooth and sweet
my whole body starts to sway
I'm pretty sure I'm about to pass out
from all the caramel I ate today
He'll be swaying for sure, come Friday, when Rhodes and several other judges will taste the creations of 20 Valley chefs. Come taste -- and vote in our People's Choice Award. Smeeks and Chow Bella's Caramelpalooza starts at 7 p.m. Friday, April 5 in the parking lot just east of UNION at Biltmore Fashion Park.
You can buy tickets Friday night, or get them now online. Proceeds benefit the Arizona Humane Society; tickets are 5 for $10.
