Vendy Awards 2010 // Best Dessert Winner!
- October 3, 2010
On Saturday, September 25, 2010 we were honored to take part in the 6th annual Vendy Awards on Governors Island. We were one of 5 finalists in the Best Dessert category along with Big Gay Ice Cream, Dessert Truck, Dragon Beard Candy, and Guerrilla Ice Cream. It was a beautiful day on Governors Island and over 1,200 people came out to try the food (and slushies) from all the great food vendors.
We had an amazing time. We met tons of great people — many of whom waited in our line a very long time and still had a big smile on their face when they got to the front (which we really appreciate!).
For the Vendy Awards, we decided to break out some new Kelvin Natural Slush Co. specials: “The Vendy” – 1/2 ginger slush, 1/2 citrus slush with blueberry mix-in and “The Governator” – 1/2 tea slush, 1/2 ginger slush with pear mix-in.
To top off our amazing day, we were really excited when Pat Kiernan (from NY1, who hosted this year’s Vendy Awards) and last year’s Best Dessert winner Thomas De Geest of Wafels & Dinges announced that … WE WON Best Dessert at the 2010 Vendy Awards!!
What an amazing honor. We are humbled to be in such great company and very proud to take home the win along with Freddie the King of Falafel & Shawarma who won both the Vendy Cup and People’s Taste awards and Souvlaki GR who took home Rookie of the Year honors.
