"The Best Jalapeno Jelly" Wins 2009 Fiery Food Challenge!
Luscombe Farm Specialty Foods has been awarded the Best of Show and the People’s Choice award in the 2010 Fiery Food Challenge for their Jalapeno Jelly!
Anna, Texas, September 24, 2009
On September 11, 2009, the most prestigious awards in the spicy food industry were distributed at a gala in Fort Worth, Texas, and Luscombe Farm Specialty Foods took top honors!
The Fiery Food Challenge, a competition sponsored by Chile Pepper magazine, pits products against one another in more than 80 categories. Professional judges evaluate hundreds of sauces, salsas and other spicy treats and award first, second and third prizes in each category. Awards are proudly displayed at Zest Fest, a spicy food event held the same week as the Fiery Food Challenge, at the Will Rogers Center in Fort Worth.
For many years, Luscombe Farm Specialty Foods has been using the freshest Texas-grown ingredients to produce the best Jalapeno Jelly. Demand has increased so quickly that the Jalapeno Jelly is now being sold at specialty food stores throughout the United States. With tireless dedication to the product, Luscombe Farm Specialty Foods opened a commercial kitchen/retail shop in Anna in October 2007. There you can find the Jalapeno Jelly and their new Jalapeno Peach Jelly on display alongside unique gourmet gift baskets.
Leslie Luscombe, proprietor, said “I was completely surprised. I knew our products were good, but to take Best of Show AND the People’s Choice award is amazing. This is a huge honor and will be a huge boost for our little company. I have worked very hard and feel very blessed. The best part of all this is I named the jelly “The Best Jalapeno Jelly” because that is what everyone would say after tasting it. I am so glad we have lived up to our name.”
