Sabra Dipping Company, a leading manufacturer of refrigerated dips and spreads, has enlisted the help of influential food lovers to choose the winners of the Sabra Taste Intervention competition (http://www.sabra.com). Launched on June 7th, 2010, the competition encourages Americans to break away from the mundane and expand their food horizons.
As entries have poured in, the task of determining which entrants are most in need of expanding their culinary horizons is no small job. To that end, Sabra has put together a judging panel comprised of some of the most influential food folks today. These experienced eaters and lovers of all culinary exploration will help evaluate entries to find the person most in need of an intervention.
