The Jelly Queens Announce Biscuits and Jampionship Top Ten Finalists


The Jelly Queens Announce Biscuits and Jampionship Top Ten Finalists

After two rounds of intense virtual competition, ten finalists have earned their spot into the second annual Biscuits and Jampionship challenge, where they will battle for the royal title of “Jelly Queen/King”. The competition’s final challenge is set to be held during the 2021 World Food Championships’ (WFC) Main Event at Fair Park in Dallas, Texas. 

Earlier in the year, The Jelly Queens hosted the Biscuits and Jampionship’s first round of competition, where chefs and home cooks around the country were challenged to create their very own interpretation of a Honey-Butter Chicken Biscuit and submit it via email. Along with emailing the biscuit recipe, each contestant was required to mail two jars of their original jam to The Jelly Queens headquarters to be judged. The top sixteen entries advanced to the second round.

In round two, contestants were required to submit an original pickle recipe to The Jelly Queens. This time, only the cooks with the top ten cumulative scores were chosen to compete in the contest’s finale, which was originally set to take place at the 2020 WFC Main Event, but due to COVID-19 cancelation, will now be postponed to 2021.

“The pickle challenge was even more fun than jelly. It’s my favorite event ever!” said The Jelly Queen Owner, Donna Collins. “Everyone did a great job! I was so glad I did not have to judge, but I did get all the leftovers.”

Biscuits and Jampionship Top Ten Finalists are:

  1. Vanguelis Pablopulos

  2. Shania Waters

  3. Lois Szymanski Spruytte

  4. Jackie Seavey

  5. Judy Burton Beaudin

  6. Jaye Norris

  7. Christina Trikoris

  8. Amy Fossett

  9. Jennifer Nystrom

  10.  Lisa Keys

These ten talented cooks will go head to head in November 2021 for a sweet cash prize. The top three scoring dishes will receive $2,000, $1,000 and $500 respectively. 

The first-place winner will not only receive the cash prize, but will also be rewarded with a waived Golden Ticket into WFC 2022 and a “Jammin’ With The Jelly Queens” weekend, where they will have the opportunity to cook in The Jelly Queen’s FDA approved kitchen. 

The lucky winner will get to cook and jar one case of their own jam and one case of their own pickles at no expense to the winner. The weekend trip includes a complimentary two-night Airbnb stay along with daily family-style meals made fresh from The Jelly House.
