This year's finalists were from far and wide. The recipes are varied and scrumptious!  Come watch and cheer on your favorite!  You can purchase sample boxes of the Cook-Off Banana Puddings following the Cook-Off while supplies last.  Just $10 a sample box of all ten puddings.  That's a lot of banana pudding!  When you find one or maybe even two you really like, bid on them at the National Banana Pudding Cook-Off Auction.  You just might be the high bidder on the winning pudding.  

You can also purchase The National Banana Pudding Cookbook at the festival.  It contains the recipes from the first five years of competition and some of the Puddin' Path Recipes.  You might even spot one of the winners at the festival and get them to sign your cookbook.

The banana pudding was awesome!
