Madame Mary First place Bloody Mary Mix
Boone, IA - Madame Mary recently took first place in the Bloody Mary Competition at the Central Iowa BBQ Expo in Boone, IA. The event took place April 25th through April 27th and was sponsored by Fareway stores and the Kansas City Barbecue Society, among others.
The Bloody Mary Competition was held Saturday morning and there were eleven total entries. With the exception of Madame Mary, all other entries were made from scratch and entered by the BBQ competitors, many of whom pride themselves in making outstanding bloody marys. A panel of four judges sampled the bloody marys in a blind, unbiased format and Madame Mary was named the clear winner.
"This speaks to the consistent quality of Madame Mary and goes to show that our product requires no doctoring at all," said founder James Hanken. "It also shows that you can finally purchase a bloody mary mix that has a true made from scratch taste. Once you've had a Madame, there's no other Mary!"
