This year I had the pleasure of being asked to be one of the judges for Hope Heart Right Bites, the festivals healthy food options menu.  These bites are easily identifiable on the menu by the featured logo.

28 bites were sampled, some were hits, some were misses, all were missing the nutritional information, which made it a tad difficult to discern how healthy each bite   actually was.  Each bite was scored on the following categories;

  • Appearance
  • Aroma
  • Flavor
  • Preparation / Animation / Culinary Display ? Overall Organization / Service & Cleanliness
  • Nutrition

The winner this year with their delicious Humus Platter was Sweet Sensations.  The combination of flavors complimented each other very well, and the colors were gorgeous which brought the score for Culinary Display above all competitors.

If you are heading out to Emerald Queen Casino’s Taste of Tacoma this weekend,  you can find more information here   It runs all weekend, June 28 -30 at Point Defiance Park and admission is free.
