These were taken at The Ultimate Taste Test 2013 in Rockwell. It’s been, what, 2 years already. I missed last year’s event, but I would not definitely miss this year’s.
I just learned that The Ultimate Taste Test 2015 will be happening this Sept 12, 2015 at the Glorietta Activity Center. I looked it up, knowing that it usually happens in September. And I was just right in time to buy my ticket! And it is also timely, to share these photos with you.
The Ultimate Taste Test invites people over to let them be a food critic for a day. When you get in to the location, they will hand you a booklet, which is also your map of the place. You will see the name of the concessionaires and where they are located. Per concessionaire you will be given their food sample, in exchange you hand them your booklet, so they can sign it (this is to avoid people from coming back the 2nd time.) Afterwards, you will rate them 1 – 5 (5 as the highest). From there, they will determine the top food suppliers and they will be featured in Our Awesome Planet!
