Bear Creek, Wis. (PRWEB) March 3, 2007
It's official. Silver Floss and Krrrrisp Kraut, the leading brands of sauerkraut in the United States, are the country's best-tasting brands, according to the independent chefs at American Culinary ChefsBest™.
The organization recently gave its ChefsBest Award for Best Taste to Great Lakes Kraut Co.'s Silver Floss and Krrrrisp Kraut sauerkraut for being America's best-tasting, shelf-stable and refrigerated brands respectively. The brands were evaluated in a competitive, blind judging and were rated highest in overall quality among leading brands.
"The ChefsBest award recognizes our efforts to produce superior sauerkraut and we are honored," said Ryan Downs, co-owner of Great Lakes Kraut. "Over the course of four generations, we've perfected the art of making great tasting, high-quality sauerkraut - the world's best. Winning this award reinforces what our customers already know - that they made an excellent buying decision for their families."
The award means anyone purchasing sauerkraut - from grilling and tailgating connoisseurs, chefs and foodservice professionals, to Reuben sandwich lovers, fans of traditional home-cooked meals and sauerkraut recipes, and anyone with a general interest in a healthy diet--is assured of getting the best sauerkraut for their dollar.
"Food is the third largest expenditure of the American household," added Heidi Wissmiller, chief operating officer, American Culinary ChefsBest. "Yet with thousands of products in the average grocery store, it can be hard to determine which is the best product for your dollar. The ChefsBest Award provides unbiased, credible information about the best products in America."
