Each Finalist Had To Create A Photo Or Video About How Theyre Built With Chocolate Milk, Gregory Said.

She wasnt sure as she didnt like chocolate milk as child, but gave it a try, she said. It was delicious and it helped in my recovery and gets me ready better than other recovery drinks, Gregory said. Its a great recovery drink. I started to see a pattern in my training and it became a part of my ritual after my longer runs. She also started following Built With Chocolate Milk and decided to enter the Build It Challenge by entering a photograph of herself training, building and recovering with chocolate milk. The contest was divided into 16 entry periods and semi-finalists were chosen from each period. I was chosen on one of the last weeks. I was 15th or 16th, Gregory said. She won a $150 gift card to purchase sponsored gear, such as T-shirts and cycling shorts, and she thought that was it until she was notified that she was one of the three finalists nationwide. Each finalist had to create a photo or video about how theyre built with chocolate milk, Gregory said. I made a 15-second video, she said, and enlisted the help of friends to shoot video of her getting up in the morning, at the track, training on hills and drinking chocolate milk. At the end, Gregory said, I am built with chocolate milk. The videos were posted on Twitter and the finalist with the most re-tweets would be the winner. People could vote once a day, Gregory said. She had no idea how she was doing during the two-week voting period or how close the running was between her and the other finalists. Gregory plans to take her father, Gary Gregory, Conyngham; her fiance, Justin Murphy, Drums; and his father, Michael Murphy, Hazleton, as her guests. She and her fiance will run in the half-marathon, while her father plans to do the 5k event and her fiances father is doing the 10k event. Their airfare, hotel, entry in the runs are included in the grand prize, as well as a VIP package. Pop star Kid Rock will headline at the event. Were part of the VIP Experience, so well see him play, Gregory said. She has completed several races in the past four years, including one marathon and five half-marathons. Gregory raised $1,500 for the American Heart and Stroke Association when running in the Steamtown Marathon, and leads the Girls on the Run program, which fosters confidence in young girls while teaching a healthy lifestyle, in the Bloomsburg Area School District, where she teaches.

That Is Where Hope Foods’ Spicy Avocado Hummus Came Into Existence.

That is where Hope Foods’ spicy avocado hummus came into existence. Rave reviews at the Boulder Farmers Market, a move to a commercial kitchen, distribution locally, then to California, then nationally. It’s a story that reads like every would-be food entrepreneur’s dream, but it’s also a parable about how much problem-solving and effort goes into turning a product even an exceptional one into a national brand. When five college friends started the company in 2011, organic hummus was a rarity. “We ended up filling that niche,” says Will Burger, director of marketing. Burger, who was friends with the founders and came aboard two years ago when the company had grown to the point it was clear a marketing director was needed. But being organic wasn’t what made Hope hummus different. It was the avocado, an ingredient that unlike, say, red peppers, hadn’t surfaced in commercial hummus. And avocado wasn’t the only innovative flavor. Thai curry was another. (Now Hope even has two hummus products made with chocolate an effort to appeal to the Nutella spreaders seeking a lower-calorie alternative.) But the avocado was and still is the brand’s calling card. Where is Hope now? The company doesn’t release sales figures, but it’s distributed nationwide, including in Alaska, where Burger says it has many fans, and sold in a larger size tub in Costco stores. The product is made in a 57,000-square- foot facility in Louisville. Burger says the company sees hummus growing from a niche product to a national staple in the way that salsa or Greek yogurt has. Virtually all the other hummus on the market is pasteurized, meaning it is heated for a certain amount of time to kill pathogens. That allows more time for the product to go from manufacturer to distributor to store before it must be sold. Hope executives determined early on that they didn’t want to pasteurize the product. They say it changed the taste. But not pasteurizing was worse and could lead to the growth of dangerous pathogens. After research, they found High Pressure Processing (HPP). HPP subjects substances to 87,000 pounds of pressure per square inch, the equivalent of six times the amount of pressure at the bottom of the Mariana Trench, the deepest known part of the ocean. It kills microbes including, most important, what Morgan McArthur, director of commercialization calls the “big three”: salmonella, E.coli and listeria by stunning them. The paralyzation leads to a slow death for the microbes over an 18-hour period, but leaves the product unaffected.

Against Oklahoma State, a dropped punt snap allowed the Cowboys to kick a game-winning field goal and escape Austin with a 3027 victory. Longhorns fans can complain about the officials and yes, we all appreciate the irony of Texas fans complaining about the Longhorns not getting callsbut if they can clean up their special teams, it may not matter which calls Texas gets or doesn’t. At some point, Texas has to break through with a windoing that this week against TCU would obviously be huge, but will be terribly difficultbut the Longhorns are on the correct path. 7. Your early leader for the Piesman Trophy is 300-pound Ole Miss defensive tackle Robert Nkemdiche, whose one-yard touchdown run in Saturday’s win at Vanderbilt was his third of the season. Don’t know what the Piesman Trophy is? Read about it here . I’m a voter, mostly because I was told that I would get free pie at the ceremony in December. 8. With a 3124 win at Wake Forest on Saturday, Indiana upped its record to 40. No, the Hoosiers haven’t beaten anyone of consequence yet. But they’re 40 for the first time since 1990. A grassroots movement is afoot to get ESPN’s College GameDay to come to Bloomington, but it has been about as successful as my continued effort to get T-Pain on as a guest picker instead of Kenny Chesney for the 74th time. GameDay is headed to Notre Dame-Clemson, and the Hoosiers host Ohio State on Saturday. So, improving to 50 could be a challenge. 9. What a difference a week makes 10. After Auburn’s 4521 loss to LSU, we learned a little more than we ever wanted to know about Tammy, a regular caller on The Paul Finebaum Show. After this troll job from Mississippi State’s football Twitter account following the Bulldogs’ 179 win in Auburn on Saturday, Tammy’s call Monday afternoon should be epic. What’s eating Andy? I don’t know if I made it clear enough in the first section of this column or in this story from a few weeks ago , but coaches, STOP PUNTING ON FOURTH-AND-TWO IN PLUS TERRITORY. You’ll score more points and possibly win more games. Meanwhile, the games will be more interesting for those of us watching. Andy Staples What’s Andy eating? If you’ve learned anything watching the Andy’s Tailgate Test Kitchen videos we’ve been making this season, it’s that my basset hound Lelu* usually has great taste. Sure, she occasionally eats garbage, but if you follow me on Twitter you know I do, too. Typically, Lelu’s nose is spot on when begging for treats. She goes right for the best meat. So, when I visited The Branded Butcher in Athens, Ga., and saw a menu item that looked like something Lelu would love, I had to order it. *Yes, I named my dog after Milla Jovovich’s character in The Fifth Element.

Im seeing a lot of familiar faces and a lot of new faces too. Clara Rome of Exeter enjoyed the new childrens wing with her 2-year-old great-granddaughter, Gia Rose Martineau, who spent her afternoon working on wooden puzzles. She loves it, Ms. Rome said. Theres a lot to do. Ms. Rome had come to the library in the past but said she was very impressed with the expanded facilities. Im overwhelmed; its very beautiful, she said. I will take (Gia) back here. Melissa Werner, a former director of the Pittston Memorial Library, recalled when talk of the expansion and the Cosgrove Project started. It started with the (Joe) Cosgrove collection arriving and trying to find a place for it, she said. Ms. Werner, who has since moved on from the Pittston library, came back Saturday to see the finished product. Its beautiful, she said. They really went above and beyond. …

The Various Breads, Cakes, Candy, Cookies And Other Open-class Baked Goods Entries Were Sold Off To The First Taker.

3. The various breads, cakes, candy, cookies and other open-class baked goods entries were sold off to the first taker. (Jenni Grubbs/Times) Entering cookies and candy in this year’s Morgan County Fair was something different for Eunice Wahlert. The Brush resident regularly enters her prize-winning flowers at the fair, which she did again this year and scored the judge’s choice prize for her purple phlox. But the now-semi-retired Wahlert also decided to volunteer as a fair superintendent, and she was assigned to help with the Bake Sale, where all the baked goods entries get sold off after judging. Since she was going to be at the fair on Monday for that, she decided she might as well bake something and enter it, too. Little did she know, that choice would pay off in the form of at least one more big prize. Baked Goods judge Marlene Mason chose Wahlert’s chocolate chip cookies as the one of the best among six entries. This was a category that had more entries than most, with between one and three entries being more typical. “I about passed out when she put the (red) ribbon on my chocolate chip cookies,” Wahlert said. But she was quite pleased with the result. “That sense of competition never goes away,” she said. Mason seemed to have a difficult time with making decisions on the other chocolate chip cookies. She pointed out that the size of the cookies was one of the judging criteria. “Since I have to be picky,” she said, she factored size in heavily when choosing between two plates of cookies that she deemed relatively equal in taste, appearance and composition.
