Caramelpalooza at Smeeks: Last Chance to Apply to Judge!

​(Note: Judges have been chosen. But join us Friday!)

Caramelpalooza is almost upon us -- and it's not too late to apply to be one of our special guest judges at our caramel tasting event, to be held Friday, March 26 at 7 pm at Smeeks candy store in central Phoenix.

The competition will be fierce and sweet, including Urban Cookies, Sweet Republic, Bourbon Steak, Tracy Dempsey and La-Dee-Dahs.

Apply to be a judge here. Winners -- who will receive an official Chow Bella apron and enough caramel to pull out all your fillings -- will be announced Tuesday, March 23.

Even if you're not chosen to judge, you're still invited! And we'll have a Reader's Choice caramel, so you'll be in on the tasting action.
