Meet Our Caramelpalooza Reader Judge!

We had some wonderful acrostic poems in our last Caramelpalooza contest, but there can only be one reader. The lucky person who gets to be a judge in our blind tasting is....

Sheila Krueger!

Sheila, you had us at "L-Yes." Sheila describes herself as "A long-time, social-networked foodie with a passion for the local players."

Here's Sheila's poem:

Add salt
Melts in your mouth
Every girl's dream
L-Yes I wanna be a judge!

Didn't win? Don't worry, the caramel's free for all. Come and get your fix Friday night at Smeeks.
