We Have a United Stakes of Salad Winner!
Over the past few weeks, we’ve been watching garden stakes pop up across the country to see how our Summer Salads are growing in the United Stakes of Salad. We wanted to see which salad would win in each state, and chose one fan to receive Noodles for a year – that’s enough to get you through til the next season of salads rolls around!
More than 30,000 of you planted your virtual garden stakes to vote for your favorite Summer Salad. Our lucky winner Scott D. of Columbus, Ohio, staked his claim and reaped the reward.
As for our winning salads, it seems the South lives up to its reputation of knowing a good BBQ when they taste one, as the Backyard BBQ was a particular hit! The plains and mountain states, along with the upper Midwest, have a fondness for the summery goodness of Spinach and Fresh Fruit, making this one a winner – on purple mountain majesties, and among amber waves of grain. Our newcomer this year, the Chili-Lime Ginger Salad, left a strong impression on guests everywhere! All in all, it was a very close race.
