Just in time for National Sandwich Month, Jif is launching the 12th annual Jif® Most Creative Sandwich Contest! Now through November 8, 2013, kids from across the country will have the chance to discover new lunchbox favorites and achieve sandwich stardom, with the chance of earning a $25,000 college fund!
This year, entrants can incorporate new flavors into their sandwiches by using Jif Peanut Butter, as well as new Jif almond and cashew butters, Jif whipped peanut butter spreads or Jif chocolate flavored hazelnut spreads.
From August 20, 2013 through November 8, 2013, parents can submit their child’s innovative recipe online at Jif.com by completing the contest entry form. Entries must be submitted online by 11:59 a.m. on November 8, 2013. For more details about the contest, visit the Jif website.
Sandwiches will be judged on the following criteria: creativity, taste, visual appeal and ease of preparation. Each original sandwich recipe submitted must contain at least two tablespoons of Jif peanut Butter, Jif hazelnut Spread, Jif almond and cashew butters or Jif whipped peanut butter spreads.
Ten semifinalists will be chosen in November 2013 and will participate in a nationwide online vote beginning January 2014. Five finalists will then be determined to attend an event in New York City, where the contest grand prize winner will be announced.
If you think that Jif products are just for peanut butter and jelly, think again. Last year, 10-year-old Jacob C. from Morganton, NC took home the grand prize for his creative recipe: the Magnificent Mole Chicken Torta. Jacob’s unique use of Jif chocolate flavored hazelnut spread in a savory mole sauce earned him a $25,000 college fund.
Do not miss your opportunity to show your creativity and come up with your own recipe for this contest.
You can purchase Jif® whips, cashew and almond butter at your local Albertson’s in Mesa as well as Safeway and Fry’s. Some of the smaller stores do not yet carry it, so make sure to keep checking.
