How it works

From Monday, May 23-Thursday, May 26, daily head-to-head matchups will take place on the Sweet Grown Alabama Facebook page.

Voting opens at 8AM and closes at 8PM each day. Casting a vote is simple, just click on the picture that corresponds with your favorite dish and add a reaction (like, love, wow, etc.) Whichever reaction you pick will count as one vote towards your favorite spot.

The winner of each daily head-to-head matchup will move on to the next round—the Flavorful Four.

In June, a panel of judges will head to the location of each of the Flavorful Four finalists to taste-test the fan-favorite dishes. What’s up for grabs? The big winner will receive a plaque, cash prize and features in Neighbors magazine and Simply Southern TV. Oh, and the ultimate bragging rights, too.

Help uplift local businesses by casting your vote today.
